A man in his forties contacted Michael Lewin Solicitors when he was injured in a needless and avoidable accident at work; the expert team of qualified solicitors fought tirelessly to deliver Mr J the maximum compensation in the UK for his suffering.
Claims for injuries relating to slips trips and falls in the workplace have increased considerably in the last few years. In one year alone 40 workers lost their lives due to accidents at work. Also in a year over 15000 major injuries to workers have been caused by slips trips and falls. At least double this number of workers have had to take more than three days off work as a result of injuries sustained at work. It is estimated that this costs society around £800 million a year.
Mr J from Hull injured his knee when he stepped into a deep hole which had been left exposed. The knee is the largest joint in the body and very vulnerable to injury. It is not as mobile as other joints in the body. It is designed to move forwards and backwards but side to side movements are very limited. Therefore it is quite easy to twist or wrench a knee joint if you step into a hole as in the case of Mr J. In serious cases this kind of accident can wrench the knee to a point that it becomes dislocated. Any kind of serious knee injury can have severe long term effects and the correct medical treatment is vital to reduce the risk of permanent damage.
