Accident Claims Case Studies and Testimonials

Disputed Medical Evidence

Apr 12, 2013

Karina Wilson works in an Ayrshire factory where there had been concerns about grease and water on the smooth concrete floor of the factory for well over a year.  “I tried to clean this floor as best I can to prevent injuries as there are a lot of people walking on this floor” she complained.  Unfortunately it was Karina who slipped on the floor, landing flat on her back, and hitting her outstretched hand on a metal platform.


She instructed to deal with her personal injury claim, where we argued a breach of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.  While the insurers were quick to admit liability for this work accident, they dragged their heels when discussing the medical evidence. “The delay was very frustrating” said Karina, who is getting married soon and was keen to have matters resolved.


The insurers were persuaded to make an offer of £1000 for the soft tissue injuries to her back and knee.  “I was pleased that I received compensation, and thank very much for everything they did for me.”
