Multi-million pound settlement agreed for life changing scalp injury and other severe injuries
Levenes have been successful in agreeing settlement for their client who suffered horrific life changing injuries at work.
This is a remarkable story of an inspirational beautiful young woman who suffered the loss of her scalp, her ears and thumb when her hair was caught in a moving part of a machine which she had been instructed to clean even though part of the machine was still running.
Company and Director fined over £500,000 following accident at work claim
Liability was admitted by the insurers of the manufacturing company who had encouraged very unsafe working practices and failed to ensure that machinery was operated safely.
The company had failed to fit machinery with safety features which would have prevented the machine from operating when any worker entered a danger zone.
Initially, the company argued that our client was partly to blame for what happened, despite the fact that the company was convicted of health and safety offences after the incident and had a poor safety record.
Levenes pressed for the company to accept full liability which they did without the case having to go to trial.
Our client has endured years of pain and suffering, including undergoing numerous surgical treatments but thanks to the settlement she is able to rebuild her life.
Interim payments were made which have covered her surgical treatments, other therapies, wigs and prosthetics.
Commenting on the case, Tim Beasley welcomed the agreement of settlement.
“Whilst no amount of money can make up for what our client has suffered the payment means that her hospital bills ,wigs, prosthetics, loss of earnings and many other expenses are covered.
Miss L has impressed us all with her amazing fortitude in the face of devastating injuries for a young woman. Her strength and positive attitude are truly inspiring.
