No win no fee* Stourbridge claims


The no fault accident

Our client, Mr J, was hurt in an accident whilst at work and realised, afterward, that he would need the expert advice of a ‘no win, no fee*’ Stourbridge solicitor.

Mr J was a van driver and, as part of his day to day duties, he was charged with loading and unloading his van for deliveries.

On the day of his accident he was in the process of readying his van for loading. This involved moving a steel beam which was used to support and partition the trailer’s roof into position.  As he did this the beam collapsed.

Upon later investigation it transpired that the bolt which was designed to hold the beam into place had come off the runner, which had caused the beam to fall.  When the beam fell it landed on Mr Harvey, who had to unexpectedly take its full 35 kilogram weight.

The resulting Injury

The sheer weight of the metal beam landing on Mr J dealt him a rather severe injury.  He suffered soft tissue damage to his lower back and dislocated his thumb. The injuries combined caused him to take four months off work.

The aftermath

Thankfully for Mr J, the injuries he sustained were not too serious, although they were exceptionally painful.  It was the sheer amount of pain he was in that caused him to take time off work as he was unable to continue with the manual labour side of his job, and he found driving long distances would be equally as painful and not good for his back.

During the time he took off work, Mr Harvey received statutory sick pay, which was paid at a significantly lower rate than his usual rate of pay.  He also lost out on the potential for bonuses which he was usually paid for making his deliveries on time.

The ‘no win, no fee*’ Stourbridge lawyers entry

Mr J’s ‘no win, no fee*’ Stourbridge lawyer immediately got to work on helping him make a claim against his employer.

Investigations discovered that his employers had actually been aware of a fault within the lorry as during a routine inspection the fault had been discovered.  Despite this the van was allowed to go out of the depot and be used by Mr Harvey.

It was this discovery that ensured that Mr J’s employers were found to be responsible for the accident.

His employers, on seeing the evidence, agreed to settle his case out of court and paid Mr Harvey the financial compensation he deserved.  They then set to work on ensuring that there were improvements made to the reporting system, which meant that in future all other faults would be immediately dealt with and the equipment, machinery or vehicles involved were not allowed to be used until they had passed another inspection to ensure safety.

The compensation payout

Mr Harvey won his claim for financial compensation with the help of his no win no fee* Stourbridge solicitor.
