Our client was employed as a hostel assistant at the Perth & Kinross hostel when she was involved in an incident, the same as her colleague in the case study above.
During her employment as a business improvement officer for the Scottish government, our client was involved in a workplace accident. She is based at St Andrew's House in Edinburgh and also acts as a fire warden for the building – a role which led to her sustaining an injury.
When our client, Mr John McGrouther, was involved in a workplace accident on 18 August 2017, he decided to make a claim with the help of Thompsons Solicitors.
The client instructing Thompsons' work accident solicitors in this case was employed as a production worker with Muller Wiseman Dairies.On the day of his accident, he was acting as office supervisor, which involves him allocating work to other staff in the warehouse. He left his office to attend to an issue with a tail lift for a trailer and walked with a colleague to the appropriate trailer bay to show a mechanic exactly what was wrong with the tail lift. As he was leaving the bay, however, he slipped on a wet floor, landing on his back on the hard concrete floor.
When he suffered a workplace accident on 2 September 2014, our client was employed by NHS Lothian at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh (RIE) in the Sterilisation Department. On the day of his accident, he was situated in the decontamination area.
