Michael Lewin Solicitors have been helping clients claim compensation for accidents at work for over ten years; our experts in Leeds have an excellent history of success in the field of compensation claims.
Mr R was awarded compensation of £1500.00 after he sustained an injury in an accident at work. Mr R tripped over a pallet that was obstructing the walkway he was using. As the accident was not his fault he was able to make a successful claim.
Your employer has a duty to keep you safe in the workplace; that duty includes training staff about health and safety matters like leaving pallets in the walkway.
A duty of care is a much used legal term which comes into play when a company or organisation does something which could be reasonably expected to cause another person harm either intentionally or through neglect. This harm could be either a physical injury the most common type we see here or it could be a mental injury or the financial consequences of an accident could be harmful to the individual and his or her family. In a workplace an employer must provide a minimum of reasonable care towards all its employees. If this duty of care is neglected and an accident subsequently occurs employees are further covered by being able to take their employer to court to get financial compensation for any harm caused by the employer’s negligence or non-adherence to their duty of care.
Michael Lewin’s expert can help you claim compensation for any type of accidents that happen at work; all our Leeds based solicitors ask of you is that you present us with a genuine claim for compensation.
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.
We will work on a ?no win no fee? basis on behalf of clients who have a genuine claim for compensation. This means that you do not pay us a penny unless your claim is unsuccessful. It is very unlikely that your claim will be unsuccessful but we can help you cover for that too with the help of an insurance policy. This means that even if your claim is unsuccessful the insurance will cover our costs and not you.
Either way you do not have anything to lose if you want to claim compensation for any accidents that have happened at work; speak to an expert at Michael Lewin Solicitors in Leeds today on: 0844 499 9302.
