A Nuneaton man has today reached a settlement of £400,000 for his legal claim, having sustained serious injuries in an accident at work.
He was injured when working as a mechanic at a bus depot. Whilst he was working underneath a bus, a jack failed causing the bus to drop slightly, partially crushing him. Severe facial injuries were sustained and he also suffered a severe psychological reaction to this terrifying event. In the course of the legal claim, treatment was accessed which has significantly improved the situation.
Stephen Nye, Partner at our Birmingham office handled the claim and commented: "This was a very serious incident which put my client's life in danger. His injuries were severe, but could so easily have been much worse.
"The treatment provided has improved my client's situation considerably and he can now look forward to a brighter future. His damages will enable him to continue to receive the support he requires and will provide him with financial security, as his ability to work in the future is compromised."
