Posted on 10/06/10 in Recent Cases, No Comments

Mr M of Liverpool, was involved in an accident, which occurred during the course of his employment where he was required to load items onto aircrafts. Mr M lifted a suitcase which was extremely heavy pulling his arm. Mr M suffered musculoligamentous injury to his neck, back and shoulder, which fully recovered within 3 1/2 years.

Liability for the accident remained denied however, after obtaining supportive medical evidence from a Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon.

WE Solicitors successfully secured a sum of £4,750 from the Defendants, in respect of Mr M’s injury.
