Mr G had been the victim of a nasty work accident; he approached accidents at work specialists at Michael Lewin to get compensation for him using their experienced solicitors. Michael Lewin have been thrilled to get compensation of £4500.00 for the 29 year old.
Mr G aged 29 from picturesque Swansea in Wales came to Michael Lewin after a particularly terrifying fall. Our client had been working up at ladder when the aluminium bar which should have supported him snapped without warning. Our client fell from the ladder to the ground. Mr G sustained serious injuries and he felt very shaken up after his terrifying ordeal. The accident was not his fault so he made a claim.
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.
For the ladder to have snapped under a person’s weight when they were using it correctly the ladder has to have been defective. Therefore the accident is the fault of the employer for he/she had not checked the ladder to check if it was safe before his employee used the defective equipment and fell causing himself some nasty injuries.
If defective equipment has caused an accident in the workplace and resulted in any injuries to employees all possible causes will be investigated. Service records will be checked reports of defects or problems will be examined and the frequency of inspections will be taken into account.
Employers must not only create a safe working environment but they must enforce it and ensure that it is adhered to. They are responsible for any employee who has either not been trained or is failing to follow correct safety procedures.
