Bus driver receives compensation

Bus driver, Amin, was walking across the bus depot to get to his bus, when he slipped and fell due to a pool of oil on the floor. He reported the accident to his Supervisor and, despite being in pain, continued on his bus route. When he returned to the depot later, the patch of oil was still not dealt with and his leg was hurting too much to continue working.

Amin sustained ligament damage to his right knee, required physiotherapy, and was unable to work for nearly two months. Although his employer paid him during his sick leave, he missed out on overtime work, which he would normally have undertaken.

Amin received £4,760 from the bus depot's insurers in settlement of his claim.
