Jon F's story
I found Unite Legal Services very helpful and informative.
Unite Legal Services has won compensation for local authority worker, Jon F*, who was injured during the course of his employment.
The member was working as a bin lorry loader and was disembarking the lorry when the driver pulled off too quickly. As a result, one of the lorry wheels ran over the member’s foot. He suffered a severe soft tissue injury and pain for a number of months following the incident.
The injury was caused by the negligence of a fellow employee, for which the employer was vicariously liable.
The member said:
“I found Unite Legal Services very helpful and informative. I realised it was a drawn-out procedure by the other side. However, every time I had questions, I was kept fully informed and up-to-date with the case.”
