Case Study

£20,000 compensation secured by McHale & Co following forklift work accident 

More than £20,000 has been secured by McHale & Co Partner Marta Grzelak for a man knocked down by a forklift truck at work.


McHale & Co Partner Marta Grzelak recently acted for Mr C, who received compensation in excess of £20,000 after being knocked down by a forklift truck at work. He suffered a minor head injury and soft tissue injuries.

Securing the right outcome

Although the liability was admitted within the year of commencing the case, the quantum was in dispute. Mr C said: "I am delighted with the outcome. Although it took three years to settle my case, it was worth the wait. My employer's insurer wasn't prepared to pay anything more than £4,500.  

"I am very grateful for Marta's advice to take the matter to court in order to increase my compensation.  On top of everything, I was able to communicate in my native Polish and Marta kept me updated about the progress of my case at all times. I can't recommend her services enough. Thank you very much!"
