Mr P asked Michael Lewin Solicitors for help when he sustained an injury through no fault of his own; the accident at work was qualified by the team of solicitors as a legitimate case for a compensation claim which they accepted on a no win no fee basis in the UK.
Mr P from the village of Great Sutton was 28 years old when an accident at work left him bruised and distressed. He suffered injuries to his back when a metal barrier collapsed. If an accident occurs in the workplace as a result of any form of negligence a person is entitled to claim compensation for any physical emotional and financial damage.
If as an employee you feel that your employer has failed to either act or they have been negligent by an inaction which could reasonably have been predicted to cause an accident then you can take legal action to get compensation. Michael Lewin can provide detailed legal advice on the circumstances of your case.
Harm is caused by either the action or sometimes the inaction of the employer. Some actions which could be considered harmful to employers could include an employer removing a safety guard for cutting equipment thus increasing the likelihood for an accident to occur. An inaction causing harm could be something as simple as an employer not replacing a mat by the entrance to the building and this causing a slip or trip. Another inaction which frequently occurs is employers not insisting that warning signs are in place when liquids are spilt on the floor. The team of solicitors at Michael Lewin work tirelessly to ensure that every client who has suffered an accident at work receives the maximum compensation for their claim in the UK.
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. Michael Lewin work on a no win no fee basis so Mr P received 100% of the compensation. He didn?t have to pay any of the legal costs as Michael Lewin recover their fees from the third party.
