Our client was asked to carry out a minor plumbing job by his manager, but was provided with a tool which was not specifically made for the purpose and therefore did not grip very well.
While trying to loosen a fixture, the tool slipped and our client hit his hand so hard on the fixture he was trying to loosen that he severed the tendon in one of his fingers, causing it to droop.
He had to have day surgery to repair the tendon.
Financial reward for client and his partner
Fortunately he did not suffer any loss of earnings, but we were able to obtain a financial award which compensated him for the pain and suffering he went through.
Metcalfes’ Personal Injury Solicitors also secured an additional amount for his partner who had to help him after the accident by doing all of the gardening jobs that our client had been unable to do in the meantime.
