On this particular day Mr W was allocated a different works van, which had been fitted with a steering wheel adaptation. It shouldn’t have been. The company does not allow them, but they knew it had been fitted.

As the steering wheel turned the adaptation struck Mr W’s hand and dislocated his thumb.

After we put the claim his employers have admitted the accident was their fault, and Mr W will now be compensated for what happened. His employers have also agreed to fund rehabilitation treatment to help get Mr W back to work, as he has been unable to carry out his usual duties since the accident happened.
