Hungarian lorry driver tragically dies

Siobhan McIvor, a Partner and Personal Injury lawyer, has successfully settled a fatal accident compensation claim on behalf of the widow and children of a Hungarian lorry driver, who tragically died having fallen off a lorry at the depot where he was loading his vehicle.

Siobhan McIvor was assisted by a Hungarian speaking lawyer, Diana Magyar who ensured the deceased’s family were  able to both give instructions and receive all advice in their native Hungarian language.

Investigation and lessons learned

It was vitally important that those at fault for this tragic accident were investigated and lessons were learned– and in this case the offending depot were successfully prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive for health and safety breaches, and fined.
