West Country Mechanic recovers substantial damages following a toe crush injury as a result of unsuitable work equipment.

Carrs Solicitors recently settled a case for a five figure sum in relation to a claim by a Cornwall based mechanic who sustained an open fracture of the forth toe of his foot, as a result of the employer’s failure to provide suitable lifting equipment for the removal of an engine weighing over 500kg.

The nature of our client’s injuries was such that medical opinion from three different areas of expertise was required.

At Carrs Solicitors we are not contractually bound or otherwise tied in with medical agencies.  This means that we are free to select the most authoritative medical experts of our own choosing to ensure that the client gets the best medical opinion, and we have the best chance of obtaining a full and reliable diagnosis and prognosis so as to fully evaluate our client’s damages before a settlement or court assessment.

In this case the insurers fully co-operated and a very reasonable settlement was agreed on the strength of the medical experts’ opinions that were submitted.
