East Riding man recovers damages for amputation injury caused by unguarded machinery.

Carrs Solicitors have recently recovered a significant damages award on behalf of a Claimant who suffered partial amputation of a finger in the course of his employment as a Service Engineer.

The accident was caused as a result of dangerous equipment not being guarded contrary to the employer’s common law and statutory duties.

The employer’s breach of their statutory duties admitted however, the employer’s insurers sought to shift 50% of responsibility for the injury upon the Claimant.

We succeeded in significantly reducing the extent of the contributory negligence to be factored in, with the insurers ultimately agreeing to settle the case on the basis of an overall 85% liability apportionment in our client’s favour.

We were also able to secure the most authoritative medical evidence and expert Counsel to secure the best possible settlement for our client.

Having the best arguments in relation to contributory negligence in employer’s liability claims, the best Counsel and access to the best experts, gave us a clear advantage in this case. 

The Claimant made the following comment “Thank you for all your hard work over the last two years, you called it spot on. I wouldn’t hesitate to use or recommend you.  All the best for the future.”
