Darwen man awarded £65,000 after accident at work

A 22 year old man from Darwen was injured in an accident at work after trying to take an air conditioning unit out of the back of a van

It was a tight fit and although he had a colleague to assist him, as he had been shown in training, the colleague was not able to fit in the van and he therefore had to move the unit on his own. In doing so, his hand became crushed between the side of the unit and the van. His hand was so badly injure that he required two operations. He has since been told he will always have pain and stiffness to his right hand and will have a reduced ability to grip.

He approached Peter Dugdale who was happy to help, and his client was awarded £65,000 in compensation
