Michael Lewin Solicitors? accidents at work claims advice helped Mrs S make a decision about pursuing compensation in London. Michael Lewin’s expert employer liability lawyers were able to make a claim on her behalf.
Mrs S was involved in an accident that left her with some very painful injuries. There was ice in the car park at Mrs S’s place of work and Mrs S unfortunately slipped on it. No measures had been taken by Mrs S’s employers to notify staff of the hazard.
Michael Lewin Solicitors were able to secure compensation of £3000.00 on her behalf as the accident was not her fault. Mrs S’s employers were responsible for the safety of all their employees and in failing to take measures to make the icy car park safe they had failed in their duty.
Every UK employer has a duty of care. This is critical to the health safety and general welfare of all employees. Not all employers are aware of the implications of the duty of care. But it doesn?t matter how small a business happens to be. Where there’s any member of staff there is a duty of care responsibility.
An employer should have a person who deals with health and safety matters. This person must be legally competent. In other words that person should have the ability to understand the concerns around health and safety.When it comes to duty of care the primary job of the competent person is to carry out a risk assessment. This needs to identify the health and safety risks of each employee in the workplace.In many smaller businesses the owner will take the responsibility for the health and safety whilst in larger organisations there may be a few staff with health and safety issues as their full time role.
