Carrs Solicitors win manual handling claim following rupture of the client’s bicep caused whilst delivering white goods to customers.

Our client was a Delivery Van Driver who was regularly required to deliver washing machines and other white goods to the premises of individual consumers, sometimes having to carry these items with one colleague up narrow flights of steps without being provided with a sack barrow or any specialist equipment.

Liability was admitted and in negotiations and a settlement was achieved for a substantial amount to reflect our client’s very substantial disadvantage on the open labour market as a professional driver. He decided against risking further surgery that would have entailed a lengthy period of incapacity for work and potentially jeopardising his employment position.
