Andrew Johnson - injury at work
The firm was instructed by a disabled client, who had an accident at his place of work. For some months prior to the accident, the client had advised his employers that disabled access at the place of work ought to be improved and had made various suggestions. The client was injured when he was trying to access his place of work, and tipped out of his wheelchair trying to get down a high kerb. The accident caused a progression of his existing disability by a few years. Proceedings needed to be brought against the client’s employer but also the landlord of the premises and the head lessee as well. The case was strenuously defended but settled at a round table meeting for the sum of £125,000.
