Fiona Beynon acted for a client who was injured whilst working in a factory.
As our client carried out their job, they tripped over a piece of equipment that should not have been on the floor and injured their knee. However they had some pre-existing problems with their knee but the medical evidence confirmed that the accident caused an exacerbation of symptoms for a period of time.
Our client recovered between £1000 and £2000 for the injury, and this included a claim for additional domestic assistance they received from their family for that period, because they were unable to carry out their normal tasks at home.
Our client’s name has been withheld to respect their privacy but this is indeed a true case.
