Our client was walking across the car park of her place of work when she slipped due to ice, causing her to fall and sustain a large laceration injury to the back to her head.
Our client was at his place of employment and was cutting a large sheet of plastic. He completed the task and turned off the machine using the only accessible off switch. Whilst moving the cut sheet of plastic with a colleague, it began to move and his hand came into contact with the blade which, notwithstanding being turned off, was still moving and cut across the fingers of our client’s hand.
Our client was walking in an alleyway at the back of his house when he lost his footing and hurt his ankle due to a pothole. The area in question was in a state of disrepair, and at its highest point, the defect measured 3 inches deep.
Our client was cycling along a road when it was dark as a third-party driver pulled over into an entrance into a factory. Without checking it was safe to do so, the driver pulled away from its parked position, undertaking a U-turn.
Our client was at their place of employment and noticed that there was an obstruction in an area in which our client needed to remove stock. Our client reported this obstruction to their line manager as they were unable to remove the obstruction themselves. The following day when they attended for work they once again had to retrieve some stock and the obstruction was still in place.
Our client was walking along the pavement when a car, that had mounted the kerb, hit our client from the rear. Our client’s body hit the bonnet and they were thrown to the ground near to a resident’s front garden.
Our client was at his place of work in the works yard, when a truck was being driven and started to reverse towards him. The driver of the truck did not see our client and our client did not have enough time to move out of the way. He jumped onto the back of the truck as it was moving; hanging from his left arm. He had only undergone surgery to this arm 3 months before the accident to surgically repair a tear to his tendon.
Our client was cycling along a designated cycle path through a park in Newcastle-under-Lyme when their bicycle struck a number of potholes causing them to fall from their bicycle and sustain multiple injuries.
