In July 2018 our client was making fence panels at work. The client was not wearing any PPE footwear when a fence panel fell from a bench and landed on their foot causing an injury to the foot.
The fallen fence panel caused a fracture to a toe plus ongoing numbness and pain. The client suffered a permanent lack of function of the toe, plus deterioration of the function of the foot. As a result of the injury, the client was unable to return to their hobby of football.
Our client instructed Jefferies and was represented by case handler Emma Hughes.
The claim was settled in August 2022 for £45,000. The settlement included damages for medical expenses and other consequential losses and expenses arising from the accident such as telephone calls and postage costs.
