Mr C from Manchester came to accident injury compensation claim solicitors at Michael Lewin for settlement of his claim. He was awarded £3500.00 in compensation.
Mr C had been in work; he had slipped on some water which had been left on the floor in work when he went to the bathroom. Our client was 31 when his accident in work took place. He has suffered extensive injuries due to the awkwardness of the landing that he made as he fell.
His bruising and pain has been fairly extensive due to his fall in the workplace. In the past figures have shown that slip trip and fall incidents in the workplace have cost 40 workers their lives in one year. Also in a year over 15000 major injuries to workers have been caused by slips trips and falls and over 30000 workers have taken more than three days off work.
It is estimated that the cost to society each year for slips trips and falls is around £800 million. Health and Safety Executive figures show that slips and trips are the most common cause of major injuries in the work place in Great Britain. Most workplace deaths are caused by falls from height.
