On 14 October 2015, our client had an accident in his home that led him to seek compensation with Thompsons Solicitors.Our client in this case had previously suffered a stroke in 2008 and two mini strokes in 2009 and 2010. These strokes had left him with a weakened left side (hemiparesis). He'd also developed vascular dementia. Because of his condition, he required help around the house from a social worker provided to him by Glasgow City Council.
When he was involved in a workplace accident on 1 June 2015, our client was working as a supervisor and butcher for Scotbeef.Our client's job requires him to organise meat that's sent to him from the slaughterhouse.

Our client, who was involved in a slip accident at work on 28 January 2017, was employed as a warehouse operative by the Co-op.His role required him to pick items for order, place them in cages, and take them to the loading bay to be transported to stores. The cages were attached to a low-level order picker truck (LLOP). On the night of his accident, he was working in the freezer department. He parked his LLOP in an aisle to retrieve a cardboard box full of bread, but as he was walking back to the LLOP, his left foot slipped on a patch of built-up ice. Despite trying to put his right wrist out to break his fall, he fell on to his back.
Our client in this case, who was employed as a warehouse operative, was involved in an accident while at the Kilsyth Swimming Pool on 9 February 2017, which was a Thursday.
