Facial Scarring at Work Injury Claim results in award of £67,000

A truck driver, who was struck by a steel wedge, has been awarded £67,000  by the High Court in a facial scarring at work injury claim.

Mr Justice John MacMenamin heard how Keith Dowling (38) was almost decapitated as a wedge of steel, being used to secure the ballast weight on his trailer, shot from its mounting causing permanent damage to Mr. Dowling’s face. The wedge, which measured 14 inches by 6 inches, was being hammered in place by a colleague when the accident happened.
