Mr P from Southall was 30 years old when his accident happened. He injured his wrist arm and shoulder after slipping on oil which had been left on the floor at work. Employers have a duty to ensure that our workplaces are safe for us. Unfortunately this duty is sometimes ignored and accidents can then occur.
Employers should be aware that non-abidance of these requirements results in very serious consequences for themselves and their employees. Employees can be seriously injured by way of faulty equipment which they have been given or by using defective equipment which then causes an accident. These accidents then have penalties from the employer needing to replace or re-train the member of staff who was injured to possibly paying out for rehabilitation and compensation for financial losses which the employee has suffered due to the accident.
Employers may also have to undergo an investigation and face the closure of their firm if serious negligence has resulted in a near-fatal accident on their premises. These are extreme consequences which employers rarely consider but checking equipment can prevent a great deal of heartache further down the line.
If you have suffered from an arm injury at work which was not your fault you can call our experienced accident lawyers at Michael Lewin to start your compensation claim.
