|INJURY SUMMARY||Soft tissue damage|
|CASE RESOLUTION||Case settled in January 2023 £6,000 awarded|
|CASE HANDLER||Laura Baddeley|
In April 2021, our client was closing the shutters to a café, the shutters were thick and made of heavy metal. One shutter became clogged, presumably on debris clogging the runner. As the client pulled it to free it, the shutter moved unexpectedly quickly causing our client’s left hand to be crushed between it and the adjacent shutter causing injury.
Our client suffered severe soft tissue damage.
Our client instructed Jefferies in June 2021 and was represented by solicitor Laura Baddeley.
The claim was settled in January 2023 for £6,000. The client said, “Jefferies were fantastic chased up my claim, and kept me informed.”
