Industrial Disease – Settlement Reached
Malcolm Horner, Fellow of APIL (there are only around 140 senior solicitors in the country who hold this status) recently pursued a case for a man who had worked in the car industry all his life using heavy vibrating tools. In 2015, he was told by the firm’s medical doctor to stop working with such tools and work manually but the change in work method resulted in him developing symptoms in his arms. There was a big dispute over causation of his injuries and 2 learned professors differed in their views before a compromise in liability was reached before trial and a good settlement achieved for the client.
