Expert Work Accident Solicitor
Tanker driver Geoff – not his real name – was 56 when he was badly injured in an accident at work near Middlesbrough.
“I was climbing back into my cab when the back end of a 90-foot trailer slammed into my wagon as another driver pulled away.
“The impact tore half of my cab off and I fell backwards. All my weight went onto my leg and I fractured my tibia. I was in hospital for five days and was off work for four months.
“I was going into Morrison’s one day on crutches and I bumped into an old mate I used to drink with. He said if I was you, I’d go to Macks Solicitors, they’re pretty good.
“I went to see Paul Henderson and he was excellent. It took about 14 months and he kept in touch with me all the time.
“They made a very low offer at first and then made a far bigger offer. But Paul thought they should pay more and eventually he was able to get a settlement I was very happy with.
“I couldn’t fault him, he was absolutely spot on.”
