    Mr S, from Coventry, received £10,000 for Occupational Back Injuries

    Mr S suffered back problems as a result of his exposure to heavy lifting whilst working at a former employer from 1998 to 2012 as an air conditioning engineer.  His duties involved the installation and maintenance of air conditioning units and systems in coaches. His duties necessitated him lifting and removing heavy engines and other similar components.

    He contacted Claims For You to make the claim.  Initial instructions were taken regarding the nature of his work and the full extent of his exposure.  A copy of his work history was obtained from HM Revenue & Customs to prove the dates of his employment. His medical records were requested and a medical report was prepared by an independent medical expert to prove and value the claim.  The medical expert was of the opinion that Mr S was suffering from back and lower limb injuries as a result of the heavy lifting he had carried out in the past.  The insurers admitted liability, but did not agree the findings of the medical report and they also argued that the claim had been brought out of time. Proceedings were issued to progress the matter. Negotiations ensued and an offer of £10,000 was made to Mr S to settle the claim.

    That’s not a problem, just call or email and we will advise you if you have a claim and the time limits that apply.
