Our client, a professional heavy goods vehicle driver, sustained a ruptured bicep whilst manually handling an excessive load in the course of a delivery. He reported the incident to his employers and subsequently sought treatment from his local hospital.
Liability for his injury was denied and the employer sought to blame the claimant’s injury on an alleged incident that had actually occurred six days later. Despite the fact that the claimant’s injury had been noted by the hospital prior to the subsequent event, the insurers and their solicitors continued to argue that the ruptured bicep had been caused by the later incident.
Court proceedings were commenced and shortly before the trial date, the insurers decided to enter into negotiations. The claim was settled in our client’s favour for a significant sum.
