£4,250 obtained for hospital worker who was cut by discarded glass

25th November 2022


by Neil John, Head of Civil Litigation

The personal injury team at Fraser Dawbarns has helped a local hospital cleaner to secure compensation of £4,250 after she cut her finger on discarded glassware while cleaning the sink in an operating theatre.  She suffered psychological symptoms over the possibility of infection until a series of blood tests had shown that she was not at risk.

Neil John, who leads the injury claims team, says: “Workplace injury claims are still relatively common, and come in all shapes and sizes, despite strict health and safety guidance which requires all employers to show a proper duty of care to their employees.”
