The Claimant, an experienced HGV driver, was getting down from his trailer. He held onto a strap to keep his balance but it was badly worn out and he fell to the ground from a height of 2 metres. Unfortunately, this caused a very serious wrist injury, which prevented the Claimant from working as an HGV driver and he had no alternative but to return to Poland.
The employer went into liquidation. Levenes were able to negotiate out of court settlement of £86,500 for the Claimant’s injuries and financial losses.
