A young plumber who suffered neck and shoulder pain following an accident on a building site has been awarded compensation after making a claim with the help of Owain Dodd, Personal Injury Solicitor at the Wrexham office of Bartletts Solicitors.
Owain and his colleagues at Bartletts Wrexham worked on this case to help the 22-year-old local plumber secure compensation for his injury, psychological harm and loss of earnings, following the accident whilst at work on a building site.
The young plumber was working on a building site when someone dropped a heavy tool from the scaffolding above, which fell and hit him on his head and shoulder.
He suffered shoulder and neck pain, and has experienced psychological effects when on building sites or near scaffolding since the accident.
Thankfully he was wearing a hard hat at the time or his injuries would have been far more severe.
The plumber got in touch with the dedicated personal injury team at Bartletts Wrexham and explained his accident at work to Owain Dodd who made a claim on his behalf for the 4-weeks rest he needed to have off work to enable his neck and shoulder to improve, and for his cognitive behavioural therapy for the psychological injury he suffered.
In total, he was awarded £5,600 in compensation for his injury, cognitive behavioural therapy, and loss of earnings.
