A former Windsor school caretaker who said he suffered a back injury while moving a piano at work has failed in his attempt to claim against the Royal Borough in court.
Wlodzimierz Ciazynski, who worked at Windsor Girls’ School, appeared at Slough County Court on Wednesday last week claiming compensation from the borough.
But the court heard how Mr Ciazynski only informed the school about his alleged injury a few months after the incident and had not mentioned any back problems in his previous job application.
Deputy district judge Lovell Chohan dismissed the injury claim and told Mr Ciazynski’s lawyers that the borough’s legal costs would have to be paid in full by Wednesday, June 10.
Cllr Simon Dudley (Con, Riverside) said: “We have no tolerance for dubious claims of this sort and will continue to protect our residents’ money from those trying to abuse the system and make unwarranted claims.”
