When Mr Y was the victim of an accident at work because of another person’s negligence he made contact with Michael Lewin Solicitors to establish if he was eligible to make a compensation claim; the experienced personal injury solicitors in the UK accepted his case on a no win no fee basis.

Mr Y from Peterborough was 30 years old when he had his accident. He was left exasperated and in pain when he tripped over an object on the floor lost his balance and fell violently forwards.

Slips and trips at work sadly account for so many claims against employers in the UK even though there are very strict health and safety rules in place that employers must follow to avoid accidents like Mr Y’s.The Health and safety at work 1974 is by no means an exhaustive act other additional acts have also been introduced as supplements to enhance it such as the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER 98). These additions are very much more niche to certain sectors of employment law which employers of office workers will rarely if ever need to deal with. Employers who have manual workers or who have workers who need to use machinery which is inherently dangerous can usually find more exhaustive requirements by asking a law firm or by doing a check for their legal obligations online. Another set of workers who require separate working requirements includes agricultural workers and workers who are around things such as coal dust and loud noises.

Mr Y’s accident at work was not his fault which entitled him to make a compensation claim with the help of the experienced team of personal injury solicitors at Michael Lewin in the UK.

Michael Lewin offer a sympathetic and efficient service. They ensure their cases are resolved as quickly as possible with the minimum amount of inconvenience to their clients.

When Mr Y’s case was resolved he was awarded £4500.00 in compensation. Every UK employer has a duty of care. This is critical to the health safety and general welfare of all employees. Not all employers are aware of the implications of the duty of care. But it doesn?t matter how small a business happens to be. Where there’s any member of staff there is a duty of care responsibility.

An employer should have a person who deals with health and safety matters. This person must be legally competent. In other words that person should have the ability to understand the concerns around health and safety.

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.
