It is staggering to see the Health and Safety Executive figures for 2011/2012 showed that 1.1 million people were suffering from a work related illness, 173 workers were killed at work and 111,000 other injuries were reported under the RIDDOR Scheme. 27 million working days were lost due to work related illness and work place injury and work place injuries and ill health costs society estimated 13.4 billion pounds in 2010/2011.
Clearly there are a lot of accidents that occur, and invariably result in significant injuries especially where use of machinery is used and/or on construction sites.
Whether your accident has been caused as a result of your employer not providing you with a safe work place, competent fellow employees, proper protective equipment, adequate training for you or your work colleagues, or failing to comply with varying regulations to ensure you are safe at work (these range from ensuring you have protective equipment down to lifting regulations and construction site regulations) you can be safe in the knowledge the Morgan Jones Pett have the right experience to handle this type of claim.
The Claimant was a serving prison officer and moving a prisoner from a cell. Whilst doing so his supervising officer, who was not part of the manoeuvre, fell onto my client’s back. He had to give up work on the front line at the age of only 29. He lost his career and a job that he loved. The Ministry of Justice fiercely denied liability and the case went to trial. After 2 full days of evidence, and only minutes before Judgment was due to be handed down, a settlement was reached Whilst not allowed to say anything about the terms of the settlement, the Claimant client was very satisfied with the outcome!
I would like to express my gratitude, appreciation and mostly the support Simon gave me through one of the toughest periods that an employee can go through. I would also like to express my thanks to Hayley Harbord (his assistant). Client testimonial
Six figures compensation recovered for pain and suffering, and care whilst Claimant stayed at his parents. The majority of the claim was made up of future loss of earnings, and pension and surgery costs but in addition the Claimant had previously worked as a painter and decorator and therefore was quite skilled in is DIY abilities and a claim was made for past and future costs relating to this.
thanks to you and Hayley for all you have done over the last few years. Client testimonial
The Claimant was working with a driver in collecting patients for taking to a day care centre, when on 2 separate occasions the driver failed to wait until she was seated and pulled away. On both occassions the Claimant fell and injured herself. She recovered compensation of £12,000 for her pain and suffering, loss of earnings, travel and help with domesic chores.
Thankyou for making an awful and daunting experience from my point of view, run so smoothly and being so kind and most of all winning my case for me Client testimonial
