Mr. M suffered an accident at work and came to us at Michael Lewin to help him get compensation for his injuries; our professional and experienced Manchester team can help you too.
Your employer has a duty to protect you and tell you about health and safety issues that affect you. They also have a legal obligation to report certain accidents and incidents and to pay you sick pay if you are entitled to it. Your employer has to carry out a risk assessment and do what’s needed to take care of the health and safety of employees and visitors. This includes deciding how many first-aiders are needed and what kind of first-aid equipment and facilities should be provided.
59 Year old Mr. M was busy at work when a consignment which was unsafely stored in a trailer broke free and crashed onto him causing our client a considerable amount of distress.
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.
If anything of a similar nature has happened to you Michael Lewin will be here to help with our friendly approachable solicitors specializing in employment law.
Accident at work compensation is something of a speciality for our Manchester team wherever possible maximising the potential compensation for our client.
