Haulier to seek compensation after accident?

Numerous broken bones suffered during an accident at work could lead to a haulier deciding to pursue a personal injury compensation settlement.

Leslaw Chorazak sustained serious crush injuries to his body, arm and collarbone when a lorry reversed and trapped him against a wall at premises owned by KBC Logistics in Essex in May this year.

At the time of the incident, Mr Chorazak was directing a fellow driver returning to the depot into the correct parking spot before then taking the wheel himself for another job.

However, an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) established that the yard was poorly lit, while there was no proper segregation in place to keep pedestrians away from danger.

Nicola Surrey of the HSE commented: "Mr Chorazak was seriously injured in this incident and it was only good fortune that it did not end in a fatality."

Recently, Bideford People reported that lorry driver Phil Stacey received compensation for an accident at work that led to him suffering a ruptured shoulder.
