Mr B suffered a head injury if you have suffered from a brain injury at work Michael Lewin have solicitors who get compensation after serious injuries.

Mr B came to Michael Lewin after he suffered a head injury at work. He was 28 when a metal bar (part of racking he was standing underneath) fell onto his head.

He sustained serious injuries to his head from the accident. The metal bar caused lots of damage to his head; he suffered localised bruising and the area which took the brunt of the force of the metal bar falling became swollen and red.

Our client felt that the bar should have been more adequately stored; then the entire accident could easily have been prevented. 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.
