Portuguese lady who moved to the UK for work, working in a large flower packing factory in South Lincolnshire.The nature of her work was very repetitive such that she developed a repetitive strain type injury.
The defendant sought to deny her claim on the basis that it was not foreseeable that she could suffer such an injury from the type of work she was doing for them. An ergonomics report was therefore obtained which confirmed that the repetitive nature of her work was dangerous and presented a foreseeable risk of injury. The defendant also obtained its own ergonomics report which disagreed with our own, however, our ergonomics report combined with our medical evidence from a really very good hand/wrist surgeon resulted in the defendant eventually settling her claim for damages in excess of £30,000. In the future she was likely to be at a disadvantage on the labour market when applying for jobs in the future.
