An employee who was working for Stena Ferries has received compensation after she fell and fractured her right ankle.
The employee was walking through the gallery of the ferry when she slipped on the floor and sustained an injury. She was unable to get up and was treated by a first aider on board as well as a qualified doctor who was a passenger on board. The following day, when the ship docked she was taken to hospital where she had an operation to fix plates and screws to her ankle.
Following another operation to remove the screws the woman had to undergo physiotherapy for three months. As a result of the accident she was unable to work for nine months and has only been able to return to work on a part time basis.
As this accident happened at sea the case only had a two year time limit rather than the usual three year deadline.
To find out whether you can make a claim for compensation contact our personal injury department:
"From my first meeting with Sophie regarding my accident i was alway 100% confident that she would get the best possible outcome. Sophie was professional but warm and was sympathetic to the case, I never doubted any of her advice and felt every move was made with my best interest in mind. I am over the moon with the outcome of my claim, I received a settlement much higher than I imagined when i first contacted Osbornes and would recommend them to anybody."
