    Airport worker compensation paid to German worker who lost arm and leg

    By David Brown on July 23, 2014

    A German airport worker has finally received a six-figure sum in compensation after a hard-fought legal battle that has taken four years to conclude. The airport worker compensation has been agreed at the amount of 750,000 euros, reflecting the serious injuries he suffered when the tyre of an aircraft exploded while he was standing nearby. The rig used to inflate the tyre was proven to be faulty and it overinflated the tyre. The accident led the worker – an experienced engineer – to lose an arm and leg, such was the severity of the incident.

    The case was complex and involved both German law and UK law, which are substantially different from one another in relation to situations like this. Fortunately a deal was struck in which the six-figure airport worker compensation deal was agreed. This should help the injured worker enjoy their future in a more financially secure position. The money will help to pay for prosthetics and will take into account the suffering, both physically and mentally, that the engineer went through, and indeed still experiences today. It may have been a tough case but it is one that has been successfully concluded for the injured worker.

    Claiming compensation in light of a serious accident

    Most of us can only imagine what it would be like to lose an arm or a leg – much less both – in any kind of accident. However when that accident is someone else’s fault it must be even harder to deal with. It certainly changes your life. When such a serious accident happens it is important to think about whether you have cause to bring a no win, no fee claim against those you believe to be responsible. If you can prove that negligence was crucial in the situation, you may have a good case.
