Construction Site Accident at Work Compensation Claim Oldham (Manchester)

PSR solicitors successfully represnted a construction worker who suffered Electricution Burn Injuries due to an accident at work, on site in Oldham. Our client was a 45 year old self employed groundworker.

In September 2019 he was working at the National Grid in Oldham. Our client was using an 8 ton Excavator to excavate in order to set a trench box. Whilst doing so the bucket of the excavator struck a 275kV power cable (Rochdale 2) which was located close to the base of a transmission tower/pylon (VK001). This resulted in the Claimant being electrocuted.

Our client sustained burns to right side of face and right eye, along with psychological injury.
Liability was not formally admitted by either potential Defendant.

Following medicolegal evidence being obtained it was confirmed that his eye sight had not been affected. However, psychological medical evidence confirmed that he had lost confidence and as a result of not working suffered financial hardship. 

Our client underwent successful private surgery for tear duct plugging.

The Defendants put forward a Part 36 offer of £25,000.00 in full and final settlement of the case.  

Following review with a Barrister the Claimant was advised to accept the offer and did so. 

As a result of our client employing our specialist services we fought a long hard case and obtained the best outcome for our client. Our client obtained compensation for his pain, suffering and loss of amenity.
