The anonymous female employee of QV Foods - a firm based in Lincolnshire - sustained a fractured right knee as well as serious bruising to her back following an incident at the company's depot in Holbeach Hurn.
As a result of these injuries, the woman, who is 43 years old, had to take several months off work on sick leave and could therefore opt to seek a damages settlement for her ordeal.
The accident was caused when a box of potatoes fell from a forklift truck and QV has since admitted liability for the incident by pleading guilty to breaching the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
This comes after it was suggested that a construction sub-contractor may sue Nottingham-based firm J&C Handley for severe leg injuries he sustained in an accident at work.
