The personal injury team at Osbornes has recently represented a baker after he got his arm caught in a faulty machine at work.
The injuries sustained were a broken arm, fractured wrist and a chipped elbow. Later nerve conduction studies revealed nerve damage and cold intolerance.
The claimant was unfortunately unable to return to his job as a baker due to post-traumatic stress, limitations in his capacity to lift and carry heavy objects, and ongoing pain.
The claimant had initially instructed solicitors who had failed to bring the case to an end. Some years down the line the claimant instructed Osbornes. Osbornes obtained further reports from an orthopaedic surgeon, nerve surgeon and a neurophysiologist, and press the claim on to trial.
After a period of negotiation the case settled for a six figure sum, including a claim for future lost earnings. The claim settled for exactly double the sum of money the claimant had previously been advised to accept by his former solicitors.
