Through no fault of her own Mrs R suffered an ankle injury at work when she tripped over a bin lid; when she contacted Michael Lewin she was advised that they could help her make a claim in the UK on a no win no fee basis.

It was the festive season and close to the Christmas celebrations when Mrs R injured her ankle at work. It was a good decision that she sought advice from Michael Lewin.

1974 CHAPTER 37 Health and safety act was: ?An Act to make further provision for securing the health safety and welfare of persons at work for protecting others against risks to health or safety in connection with the activities of persons at work for controlling the keeping and use and preventing the unlawful acquisition possession and use of dangerous substances and for controlling certain emissions into the atmosphere; to make further provision with respect to the employment medical advisory service; to amend the law relating to building regulations and the Building (Scotland) Act 1959; and for connected purposes.?
