A former employee of Phones4U has launched a £300,000 work accident claim against her employer after she sustained serious personal injuries while on the job, accident claim experts recently reported.
Eastbourne, East Sussex native, Louise Mennell, had been employed at her local Phones4U branch when a falling computer stack crushed her foot, according to the twenty two year old’s personal injury claims. According to a recent article appearing in the Eastbourne Herald, Ms Mennell is now disabled permanently in the wake of the incident, suffering from complex regional pain syndrome, an uncommon medical condition that leaves the suffer with a continuous sensation of burning pain that can spread from the site of the injury to other body parts of well, and is understood to be linked with an autonomic nervous system dysregulation.
According to a writ heard in London’s High Court, Ms Mennell states that in addition to her physical injuries, the incident also caused her to develop serious psychological disabilities as well, such as depresion. Ms Mennell’s personal injury solicitors are set to make the argument that due to the nature of her injuries, her ability to hold jobs in the future have been compromised to a significant degree.
Ms Mennell’s erstwhile employer, Phones 4U, has since made an admission of liability for the injuries she sustained in the incident. However, the retail phone giant and the injured woman have yet to come to an agreement in regards to the level of compensation Ms Mennell should be entitled to receive.
