Michael Lewin’s accident at work solicitors helped Mr D claim compensation in London after he was injured in a workplace accident.
Whilst Mr D 24 was at work some wood fell out of the racking and onto Mr D. The wood that fell loose crushed Mr D into the floor. As a result of this Mr D suffered soft tissue injuries and a fractured elbow.
As the accident was not Mr D’s fault and his employers were responsible for the injuries that he sustained Michael Lewin Solicitors were very happy to take on Mr D’s case and work hard on his behalf to secure the compensation he deserved.
