Mr R was awarded over £3000.00 in eye injury at work compensation following his accident at work in Manchester. The solicitors were very satisfied with the result we were able to achieve on behalf of Mr R.
Mr R was working when his injury was sustained; he was lifting sheets of metal onto a folding plate. One of the sheets of metal he was lifting slipped out of his hand and hit him in the eye. Metal is very sharp very hard and is a very unforgiving material to get hit in the face with. Mr R sustained a very painful injury to his eye through no fault of his own.
