Miss A received more than £3000.00 in compensation when she was burned in an accident at work; Michael Lewin Solicitors are there to help victims of accidents in the UK seek some recompense for their physical emotional and financial injury.

Miss A from Wisbech in Cambridgeshire was 23 years old when she was burned by hot fat from a fryer at work. Even first degree burns result in localised pain redness and swelling. Miss A was left sore and distressed and entitled to ask for some reimbursement for her ordeal.

Adequate information training and instruction is required for all workers but this is not a set amount. This will be dependent on the age and competency of the employees; for new processes or young/inexperienced employees the supervision will need to be on a far more frequent basis than for established working procedures. Also training to use a computer can allow mistakes which will not be costly in terms of employee’s physical well-being but mistakes cannot be allowed to happen when younger workers are in charge of welding equipment or large electrically powered blades.

Section 3 requires the employer to ensure that people not employed but who could be affected by his operation are not placed at risk. The general public customers visitors or contractors attending the site might need training or supervision to minimise the risk to their health and safety while on site or relevant personal protective equipment (PPE) along with training on how to use it correctly may need to be provided.

The Michael Lewin team examined Miss A’s accident at work and took her claim without asking for any money up front because victims of accidents in the UK which aren?t their fault can make a claim with Michael Lewin on a no win no fee basis. If another person is accountable for your injuries Michael Lewin will claim their fees back from the third party so you don?t have to pay anything.

Miss A received £3300.00 which was 100% of the compensation.

Everybody’s circumstances are different. There is no set amount of compensation for each type of accident in a public place. The amount of compensation you receive following your accident will depend on multiple factors the most common of which are:
? The nature and severity of the injuries you have suffered; you are more likely to get a higher rate of compensation for injuries such as broken bones and scarring than you are for bruising and soft tissue damage.
? The amount you earn; the more you earn the more you have lost out on. Therefore if you are in a higher paid job you will be entitled to higher rate of compensation to reimburse you for your loss of earnings.
? The amount of time you have spent rehabilitating; the longer you have had to have of work the more earnings you will have lost out on therefore compensation for loss of earnings will be higher. If you have had to spend a long time recovering from an accident and you have been suffering during that time you may get a higher rate of compensation for the prolonged period of suffering.
