Personal injury caused by traumatic accident at work

By: Charlie Board

A man has recently been awarded Ĺ 350,000 for injury compensation after his leg was crushed when a delivery lorry ran over him twice.

The man who is 46 years of age was left disabled when this terrible accident at work occurred 2 years ago on Christmas Eve.

A report stated that he was working as a dray man and was assisting a colleague in making a delivery to a pub. However, the delivery lorry was too big to turn round in the car park, therefore the man asked the manager of the pub to move his car. The dray man then walked around to the front of the lorry, but the driver did not see him and ran him over. The lorry driver ran over the man's leg and then reversed back over it.

The injured man's employer denied any responsibility for the accident at work, but agreed to make a payment for injury compensation in an out of court settlement.

The injured dray man has commented on the accident at work and the injuries he sustained and said: "The accident was absolutely terrifying. I just didn’t know when the lorry was going to stop. It has changed my life dramatically. At the moment I can’t work and can no longer take part in my hobbies including martial arts. I have learnt to cope as best I can and just get on with things."
