Pryers have recently won a successful claim for personal injury for a client. The Claimant, a 75 year old delivery driver was trying to unload a double stacked pallet of wine cartons using an electric pump truck. As he maneuvered the truck down a ramp the wine slid off the pallet and crushed him causing injuries to his back. A claim was brought against the claimant’s employer, the supplier of the wine and the supermarket depot where the incident occurred. The three Defendants blamed each other and all denied responsibility for the accident although an offer of £5,000 was made. The offer was rejected and the case ultimately succeeded in the York County Court. The Judge apportioned liability between the three Defendants and the Claimant was awarded £35,000.
