One of our clients worked at Honda’s Car Factory in Swindon. He was instructed by his employer to carry some car panels down some stairs. As he was attempting to do so, he dropped one of the panels, which cut his right forearm and damaged a nerve. This injury led to a loss of function in his right hand which sadly will be a permanent problem. He was however still able to work. The insurers of Honda initially argued that the client was 50% to blame for the accident but after negotiations they agreed to indemnify him in full.
SJ Edney solicitors obtained £55,000 for this client in 2005
