Michael Lewin Solicitors helped Mr F claim compensation after his accident at work; our experts in London represented him after his hand was crushed at work.
Mr F from Ellesmere Poet was at work when his accident occurred. Mr F was filling a machine with oil; the lid of the machine rested against a conveyor belt and there was no hook to attach it to and secure it.
As a result of the lid being unsecure it fell onto Mr F’s hand and crushed it. The lid weighed 20kg and fell down with enough force to fracture his scaphoid. Luckily Mr F decided to seek advice from Michael Lewin Solicitors soon after his accident.
If defective equipment has caused an accident in the workplace and resulted in any injuries to employees all possible causes will be investigated. Service records will be checked reports of defects or problems will be examined and the frequency of inspections will be taken into account.
Employers must not only create a safe working environment but they must enforce it and ensure that it is adhered to. They are responsible for any employee who has either not been trained or is failing to follow correct safety procedures. Michael Lewin Solicitors are experienced experts in dealing with claims for an accident at work; our London lawyers strive to get the best possible results for all our clients.
Employers should be aware that non-abidance of health and safety requirements results in very serious consequences for themselves and their employees.
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.
