Preston-based personal injury specialist company PHC Law has succeeded in recovering £3,250 in compensation for a man who trapped his ring finger in a window at his place of work.
When the window’s locking mechanism was found to be faulty, the man contacted PHC Law, and was advised by Mr John Cooper, a senior consultant solicitor at the firm, which specialises in personal injury law.
The incident resulted in the man sustaining a fractured finger, and when Mr Cooper contacted his employer to notify them of the claim, their insurers admitted liability due to the window’s defective mechanism.
Mr Cooper is a senior partner in PHC Law personal injury solicitors, based in Preston, Lancashire. He said: “We obtained a report from a consultant orthopaedic surgeon to assess the seriousness of the injury, and from this assessed the likelihood of being able to bring a successful using our many years’ experience, and this formed the basis of our submission.
“This case was similar to thousands every year, in which people suffer injuries in the course of their regular work through no fault of their own, and subsequently receive compensation for the injury and the distress caused, with help from dedicated and caring such as us,” he added.
