Mr E was awarded a four figure sum of compensation after making an accident in the workplace claim with the help of Michael Lewin’s London lawyers.
Mr E was 60 when he injured his foot in the workplace. An unsecured breaker fell over and landed on Mr E’s foot. The heavy piece of equipment caused serious damage to Mr E’s foot and he was in a lot of pain.
Michael Lewin Solicitors were happy to take on Mr E’s case as the injury had been sustained through no fault of his own. We were happy to secure the amount of £3000.00 for Mr E.
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.
To make an accident in the workplace claim in London you should seek legal advice from solicitors who are passionate about getting the maximum amount of compensation for their clients.
A duty of care is a much used legal term which comes into play when a company or organisation does something which could be reasonably expected to cause another person harm either intentionally or through neglect. This harm could be either a physical injury the most common type we see here or it could be a mental injury or the financial consequences of an accident could be harmful to the individual and his or her family. In a workplace an employer must provide a minimum of reasonable care towards all its employees. If this duty of care is neglected and an accident subsequently occurs employees are further covered by being able to take their employer to court to get financial compensation for any harm caused by the employer’s negligence or non-adherence to their duty of care.
