Carbone Lawyers has obtained an out-of-court settlement of $650,000 for a security guard who was injured whilst on the job.
The 29 year old worker sustained physical and psychiatric injuries when he slipped on a wet floor that was in the process of being cleaned. The company that was contracted to undertake the cleaning failed to display a warning sign that signified cleaning was underway and the floor was slippery.
The worker was required to undergo spinal surgery, and was compensated for his pain and suffering, as well as past and future loss of earnings.
Whilst our client has a long path to recovery, we are pleased that he was able to obtain a fantastic result that will no doubt assist him in moving forward with his life.
