Mr J from Chesterfield nearly lost his leg in an accident at work. Mr J 47 was working in a pub cellar when he sustained a terrible leg injury. Mr J fell down an uncovered drainage gulley in the cellar.
As a result of falling down an uncovered drainage gulley Mr J seriously injured his leg. Mr J required surgery to fix his leg. Surgeons had to perform a full knee replacement on Mr J and he took a long time to recover from the operation.
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.
Employers may also have to undergo an investigation and face the closure of their firm if serious negligence has resulted in a near-fatal accident on their premises. These are extreme consequences which employers rarely consider but checking equipment can prevent a great deal of heartache further down the line.
As a result of Mr J’s accident at work Michael Lewin Solicitors were able to successfully pursue a compensation claim in London on his behalf.
