Warehouse worker wins more than £2,000 compensation for injury at work

AN employee at a parcel warehouse who injured his knee while loading up a lorry has won £2,036 damages, thanks to Geoffrey Leaver.

Andrew, 21 injured his left knee in November 2008 when his foot became wedged between the loading dock and the back of a HGV as he tried to climb inside.

The accident left him with knee problems for six weeks.

Andrew claimed his employers, The Big Green Parcel Holding Company, were responsible for the accident because a four inch gap had been left between the dock and the lorry and no bridging plates were available to close the hole.

The Big Green Parcel Holding Company, where Andrew worked part-time, denied liability, claiming the gap was smaller than alleged and that metal plates were available.

However, at a trial at Milton Keynes County Court, in July 2011, Geoffrey Leaver successfully argued Andrew’s case and a judge awarded him more than £2,000 compensation.
