The accident at work compensation claims specialists in London Michael Lewin Solicitors helped Mrs M to claim compensation following an accident at work.
Mrs M was awarded compensation thanks to the hard working and devoted staff at Michael Lewin Solicitors. Our solicitors are all driven to do the best for all our clients; we take each case as an individual case and work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
Mrs M slipped on the floor in the lavatories at work. There were no wet floor signs in place to warn Mrs M of the hazard. As a result of the slip Mrs M sustained painful injuries to the cartilage in her knee.
In the past figures have shown that slip trip and fall incidents in the workplace have cost 40 workers their lives in one year. Also in a year over 15000 major injuries to workers have been caused by slips trips and falls and over 30000 workers have taken more than three days off work.
It is estimated that the cost to society each year for slips trips and falls is around £800 million. Health and Safety Executive figures show that slips and trips are the most common cause of major injuries in the work place in Great Britain. Most workplace deaths are caused by falls from height.
If you have had an accident at work you should seek compensation claims advice in London immediately; delaying in making your claim could invalidate it. 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. In order for Michael Lewin to claim compensation on your behalf following an accident at work we have to be able to prove that the accident was not your fault and that someone else was liable for the injuries you sustained.
If you can answer YES to the following questions you may be entitled to make a claim:
? Have you been injured at work in a public place or in someone’s home?
? Was the accident the fault of a third party or was someone’s negligence to blame for the accident?
? Have you sustained an injury as a result of your accident that has required medical treatment?
If you have answered yes to the questions above the solicitors at Michael Lewin will be able to help you pursue compensation. For a more in-depth assessment of the validity of your claim speak to one of our specialist liability lawyers over the phone.
