Mrs V made an accident at work compensation claim with the help of Michael Lewin Solicitors in Leeds. Following her accident at work we managed to secure her the compensation she deserved.
Mrs V was at the bar where she was an employee when her accident occurred. She slipped on a spillage in the bar that had not been cleaned up. As she sustained an injury through no fault of her own the solicitors at Michael Lewin advised her to make a claim for compensation.
Slips trips and falls are one of the most common types of accidents at work and they account for a large number of the people that have to take time off work following this type of accident.
There are basic rules which must be followed to reduce the risk of slips either at work or in a public place. Failure to follow these rules can lead to liability for an accident and injury to another person. Basic housekeeping rules are vital; keep water and contaminants away from walkways and if they do spill they should be cleaned up immediately. Any employees such as cleaners who are exposed to wet floors should be provided with suitable footwear. Particular care and attention should be taken during the colder months when rain ice and snow increase the risk of wet floors.
