Petrol Pump Falling on Top of Client

Suffered injuries in an accident that wasn’t your fault? Serious injury experts in Cheshire.

Petrol Pump Falling on Top of Client – Mr. B from Runcorn was employed as a field engineer for a petrol station.  A colleague was required to lift the pumps using a fork lift truck to allow Mr. B access under the pipes to carry out remedial pipework. As the installation engineer was lifting the pumps, he lost his load resulting in the pump falling to the ground on top of Mr. B who was, at the time, checking the cable would not get caught and that the pump was able to move freely.

An ambulance was called and Mr. B was taken to the local hospital. Fortunately for Mr. B he escaped with minor injuries, bearing in mind the potential serious consequences of the negligence of the fork lift truck driver. Mr. B underwent surgery for the injury to his shoulder.

Successful settlement and £16,000 compensation

DSM Legal Solicitors was instructed to bring the claim against Mr. B’s employer and a successful settlement was reached without the need to issue Court proceedings.

Mr. B received £16,000.00 in compensation.
