Mr Johnson sustained a serious shoulder injury while working. At the time he was working as a shower fitter. He normally worked alone and carried all the fittings by himself. When gripping the edges of a unit in order to fit it he had to stretch his arms to their full span.

Several months after starting this job he developed a severe pain in his right shoulder. As a result of this he was forced to undergo an operation and then a course of physiotherapy. He also had to get steroid injections to further strengthen the muscle.

Mr Johnson sought compensation due to the pain and inconvenience of his injury but his employer claimed it was not liable.

He argued that he was entitled to compensation as he had never been told about the dangers of repetitive lifting or been given any training. The court held that his employer had breached several health and safety regulations and awarded him a five figure settlement.
