Thompsons NI Solicitors has secured damages for an employee who was injured after being required to transport heavy furniture. He was supplied with a trolley designed to carry small items of post.
While attempting to get the furniture through a doorway the employee had to tilt the trolley. This caused him to drop his arms and crouch down on the floor, taking the weight of a heavy cabinet on his arms and back.
The personal injury team at Thompsons NI represented the employee. After a period of successful negotiations, and despite the defendants having denied liability, Thompsons NI secured compensation for the employee.
The employer has since introduced proper equipment designed to transport such heavy and bulky objects. The operative will no longer be required to take the weight.
The client said: I was really happy with my solicitor and the outcome of my case.
