Jennifer Bradley secured a settlement for Jack, a factory worker who was seriously injured at the Mineral Refinery where he worked. During one of Jack’s night shift, he was dragged into and became trapped in a compactor machine suffering multiple injuries. This included a dislocated right shoulder, multiple bilateral rib fractures resulting in a left pneumothorax, laceration to the liver; and facial injuries.
Jack was initially treated in intensive care where a chest drain was inserted and a tracheostomy performed. He remained in intensive care for two weeks undergoing multiple operations. Unfortunately the injury has since prevented Jack carrying out heavy lifting and he could not continue his previous job at the refinery.
Our client at the outset instructed previous solicitors but was not happy with the advice being given and consequently instructed Jennifer Bradley to continue with his claim. Naturally, there were various arguments over contributory negligence. However, after lengthy investigations and negotiations, Jennifer obtained a considerable offer which Jack was happy to accept.
