£1,500 settlement for agency worker injured by falling box

Accident at warehouse

In January 2019, Damian was unloading a truck at a warehouse when a box fell from the top of a stack of other boxes.

The box struck Damian and he suffered a nasty cut to the forehead.  The accident was reported to a manager who took photographs of the accident location.  Damian had to take a week off work.

Shortly after the accident, Damian contacted us via our website to see if we could help him make a claim following the distressing accident.  

The claim is sent to the insurer

The work Damian was carrying out was through an employment agency.  It was established that the firm delivering to the warehouse, not the agency, was responsible for loading the truck and securing the boxes. We assessed the claim and we were of the opinion that the Defendant had failed to take reasonable care for Damian’s safety in allowing boxes to be stacked in a manner that posed a risk of them falling.

The solicitor put together the claim form setting out the facts and basis for the claim, including reference to the specific legislation it was alleged that the Defendant had failed to meet.

Damages secured

A few weeks after submitting the claim form, the firm’s insurer admitted liability for the accident.  We subsequently negotiated a settlement of £1,500 in damages.

“I’m happy with your services, everything went well!”

Success Stories


If you’ve had an accident at work, you should get in touch with our specialist team as soon as possible.  We’ll take the details we need and explain the next steps. We always recommend you take the following steps, but don’t worry if there’s something here you haven’t done:

  • Complete an accident report and inform your Health and Safety representative at work
  • If you are still in pain, shock, or distress when the report is completed, do not sign it.
  • Keep details of anyone who witnessed the accident.
  • If possible, as soon as you can, ask your Health and Safety representative to take photos of the scene and make them available to you.
  • Write down your recollection of exactly what happened in the accident, including the location and approximate time.

Work Claims Bureau prides itself on progressing your claim promptly whenever it is possible to do so. No two claims are the same. How long your claim lasts is dependent on a number of factors, including:

  • The prognosis for your injuries
  • The conduct of all parties involved
  • Whether your employer admits they were at fault or if we need to fight your case on your behalf

Bearing this in mind, work accident claims typically take between 6 months and 24 months to conclude.  However, this is not ‘written in stone’, and they can last a shorter or longer time than this.

Your employer faces further culpability if they take disciplinary action against you or terminate your employment simply because you make an honest claim for personal injury. There is legislation in place to protect you. You are doing the right thing in reporting your accident and formally submitting a claim, both for yourself and for your employer in helping prevent similar accidents happening in the future.
