Michael Lewin have been delighted to help a pensioner get accident in the workplace compensation of £2200.00. We were delighted to get justice on his behalf.
Our client Mr H worked in Swansea; he was the victim of an accident at work. Our client was on a truck when he was suddenly struck by another truck that reversed into him. Mr H was very shaken after his accident; he was 66 years old when the accident in the workplace happened. The accident caused multiple injuries and our client has struggled to put the incident completely out of his mind. He has felt better since he has received the compensation we secured for him.
