Lorry driver fractures arm while uploading goods – receives injury compensation

A lorry driver has successfully pursued an injury compensation claim after he fractured his arm, falling off the vehicle he was unloading.

As he lost his balance, the man reached out and fell on his outstretched hand. He immediately felt severe pain in his arm and was rushed to A&E where he was diagnosed with a fracture.

He was in plaster for six weeks, in which time he was unable to work and unable to complete regular household chores.

Following his injury, the driver contacted a personal injury specialist and was awarded full compensation after his employer admitted liability.
