Mrs B was awarded compensation after an accident at work thanks to the claims specialists Michael Lewin Solicitors in London.
Mrs B was a victim of defective equipment in the workplace. Mrs B was using a defective cage trolley in a warehouse at her place of work. As a result of the cage trolley being defective she trapped her hand and fingers against the door.
Mrs B suffered painful injuries to her hand and fingers after she trapped them. Thankfully Michael Lewin Solicitors were there to help Mrs B make a claim for compensation.
If defective equipment has caused an accident in the workplace and resulted in any injuries to employees all possible causes will be investigated. Service records will be checked reports of defects or problems will be examined and the frequency of inspections will be taken into account.
Employers must not only create a safe working environment but they must enforce it and ensure that it is adhered to. They are responsible for any employee who has either not been trained or is failing to follow correct safety procedures.
Employees can be seriously injured by way of faulty equipment which they have been given or by using defective equipment which then causes an accident. These accidents then have penalties from the employer needing to replace or re-train the member of staff who was injured to possibly paying out for rehabilitation and compensation for financial losses which the employee has suffered due to the accident.
