Over £16,000 Obtained for Client Struck by Pallet Truck at Work
4 September 2019
Our client was working as a maintenance operative in a factory, helping a colleague to fix a door in the loading bay, when he was struck by a pallet truck. This caused the client to fall backwards, landing on his back with his right leg stuck under the truck. The client suffered swelling and pain to his right wrist along with back pain, discomfort and headaches.
True Solicitors were able to prove that the client’s employer was negligent in causing the accident as they followed poor working practices which contributed towards the accident. The pallet truck, which struck our client, was stacked too high with boxes, obscuring the view of the driver.
We obtained a settlement figure of just over £16,000 for the client to cover his injuries, medical expenses and loss of earnings.
