Mechanic compensated for head injury

Stephensons’ personal injury solicitor, Danielle Callaway, secured a compensation of £6,500 for a 39-year old mechanic injured on the job. 

Glenn Summers was hit in the face by a metal bar when seeing to the repair of a lorry. He was waiting to fit new pins to a lorry, which was being prepared by workshop staff, when he was struck down.  

A workshop employee was removing a metal bar and bolts from the back of the lorry in order to reach old pins and remove them so that Mr Summers could fit new pins. He was using a forklift to pry the bolts loose and, as the last of the bolts gave away, the metal bar jerked loose and smashed Mr Summers in the face.

The force of the blow concussed Mr Summers, fractured his cheekbone and slashed open the side of his face. The accident left him with facial bruising, swelling, nerve damage and slight scarring.  

Solicitor, Danielle Callaway, worked closely with Mr Summers to secure a £6,500 compensation award from the workshop. 
Mr Summers has now returned back to work and can essentially live the life he was living prior to the accident. 

“When I started this claim, I did not realise what the result might be and have to state that you have shown that it would have been impossible for me to achieve this result without your legal guidance and assistance”.

“This shows that anyone else, who might be in a similar situation to me, should seek the right legal advice immediately, when challenged by a belligerent opponent. I hope that many others will also obtain their justified entitlement to compensation.”

“Whilst the process of bringing a claim can be frustrating at times, the help, compensation and experience gained has been invaluable”.
