Michael Lewin’s team feel very strongly over the issue of defective equipment as it causes needless accidents; as one of the experienced accident solicitors said ?Accidents can?t all be prevented; so employers need to take responsibility for the parts they can control such as equipment and repairs.?
Employers must ensure that they comply with legal requirements including:
? avoid potentially dangerous work involving manual handling if these risks cannot be avoided they must be reduced.
? provide health supervision as required.
? provide protective clothing and/or equipment.
? ensure that the correct warning signs are provided.

If you have had an accident in work which has caused an injury Michael Lewin could help you to get the maximum compensation they can achieve on your behalf.
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.
