After what seems like a lifetime stuck at home the Mulderrigs HQ in Bank Street Rawtenstall reopens for business on Monday 29th June.
We’d like to say a big thank you to our staff who have worked brilliantly from home during the last three months.
And an even bigger big thank you to our fab clients who have helped us get through this very difficult period.
Just like everyone else, we’ll be striving to find our own “new normal”.
We’ll be observing strict social distancing, we will only be able to see people by appointment and our staff will be staggering their working hours.
But we’re back…. We’re raring to go…. And we hope to see all of you soon!
£10000 Settlement For Injured Steelworker
Joe Graham was injured whilst working in the warehouse of a steel fabricators.
He was walking through the warehouse whilst another member of staff was using an overhead crane to move a large piece of steel.
Unfortunately the steel fell out of the crane and struck Joe as it fell.
He suffered an injury to his back and was away from work for a while. But luckily the injury didn’t prove to be too serious and he managed to get back to work.
All employers have a legal duty to take care for the safety of their employees. They should operate a safe system of work and provide safe equipment.
Employers are also subject to strict regulations in cases where there is a risk that a worker might be struck by something falling from height.
So we agreed to take on Joe’s case and we agreed to work on “no win no fee” terms.
We sent a detailed Letter of Claim to his employers and their insurers quickly admitted liability for the accident.
We then obtained a specialist medical report in relation to Joe’s injuries, and once that was disclosed to the insurers we were able to reach a settlement of £10000 in Joe’s claim.
If you know anyone who needs advice about an accident at work please feel free to put them in touch with us.
