Bakery Worker receives £22,500

Mr Robert Ewing has received £22,500 following an accident at work in January 2015.

Mr Ewing, who was 61 at the time of the accident, had been with his employer for 13 years and worked as a dispatch picker at their factory in Uddingston. Mr Ewing was picking an order in the warehouse when a colleague knocked a nearby wooden pallet which landed on Mr Ewing’s knee.

Mr Ewing contacted his union, the Baker’s Food and Allied Workers Union, who referred him to Thompsons. A claim was then submitted and the insurance company involved accepted liability.

A Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon confirmed that Mr Ewing had suffered a soft tissue injury to his left knee and that he had underlying arthritis in his knee which was made symptomatic as a result of the accident.

Mr Ewing rejected an initial offer but agreed to accept an increased proposal of £22,500. Seonaid Brophy, the solicitor who handled Mr Ewing’s claim said “I am pleased that Mr Ewing’s claim was resolved quickly and I hope that lessons have been learned to avoid a similar accident happening in the future.”
