We acted for our client (aged 46) who worked at a warehouse in Swindon. On 3rd April 2009, she was asked by her manager to do some stock checks. To do so, she had to stand on a metal A-frame ladder. A fellow employee accidentally collided with the ladder, causing her to lose her balance and fall, landing heavily on the ground. She sustained a number of soft tissue injuries, including a minor head injury and a fractured metatarsal on her left hand.
The client made a good recovery from all these injuries. A settlement was agreed without the need for us to issue proceedings.
S. J. Edney solicitors obtained compensation of £8,500 for this client during 2011
