Carrs Solicitors win £5,500 compensation for Stockport man injured at work

Mr Mike Malone a Fabricator Welder from Stockport has recently won personal injury compensation worth £5,500 following an accident at work involving the use of an angle grinder on a cutting job for which he had always maintained that an Oxy-Acetylene torch would have been more suitable.

Mr Malone initially was advised against pursuing a claim by another firm of personal injury solicitors before speaking to Carrs Solicitors who specialise in work related injury claims.

Carrs Solicitors took the case on under a No Win No Fee agreement and after applying to the High Court to restore Mr Malone's former employers to the Company Roll served court proceedings and set about securing the best engineering and lay witness evidence.

Legal liability was denied by the insurers and their solicitors on four occasions and Carrs Solicitors continued to gather evidence and pursue the case towards trial. Compensation offers eventually followed and were increased by 57% before the case settled out of court.

Speaking about the case Mr Malone said "I was extremely pleased by the way in which my case was handled, with every development explained in layman's terms. I was most impressed however by the amount of "homework" Carrs Solicitors put into the case regarding the use of angle grinders in the workplace. This is what won the case at the end of the day."
