Pushing for significant compensation for a significant injury
While Mr Marks’s employer did admit they were at fault for the accident, they also alleged that he was partly to blame for the way in which it occurred due to where he positioned his hand. This was obviously strongly denied by the Claimant.
Our solicitor Robert Weeden issued court proceedings against the Defendant, sticking by his client every step of the way and refusing to budge from the position that he should not be held responsible in any way for the incident.
Determination and hard work win the day
Robert Weeden and our legal team fought the case that the victim performed his duties with the utmost care, and that the incident was entirely out of his control. They reached an out of court settlement with Mr Marks’s employer for £92,500 which will allow him to purchase aids for around the house, prosthetics, and other ways to make living his life moving forward as normal as possible.
Mr Marks was extremely happy with the way that Rob Weeden and his team had run his case to a successful conclusion without the need to proceed to a trial, “Thank you all again for your continued work and hard work for the last couple of years on my work injury claim, you have made the process very easy and I was kept informed at all times of the procedures.
