Mr W went to Michael Lewin after his accident at work; he has been delighted at the professional way in which his compensation claim has been dealt with.
Mr W from the seaside town of Rhyl in North Wales was 27 years old when his accident at work took place. He had been walking past an aircraft in work going about his duties when he slipped on oil which had leaked from one of the aircraft.
He fell awkwardly and caused himself multiple injuries. Employers have a duty of care towards their employees to try to prevent accidents in the workplace from occurring. If you have been the victim of a slip trip or fall accident and you have suffered because of your accident you could be entitled to compensation.
A duty of care is a much used legal term which comes into play when a company or organisation does something which could be reasonably expected to cause another person harm either intentionally or through neglect. This harm could be either a physical injury the most common type we see here or it could be a mental injury or the financial consequences of an accident could be harmful to the individual and his or her family. In a workplace an employer must provide a minimum of reasonable care towards all its employees. If this duty of care is neglected and an accident subsequently occurs employees are further covered by being able to take their employer to court to get financial compensation for any harm caused by the employer’s negligence or non-adherence to their duty of care.
