Michael Lewin Solicitors were able to use their experience and expertise to help Mr C with his claim for an accident at work in the UK when he hurt his finger and sought compensation for his injury.

Mr C from Leeds was 52 years old when he had an accident at work which wasn?t his fault. His finger was injured when it was hit by part of a bread making machine. All machinery should be regularly tested to ensure it is in good working order and all staff should be fully trained to use any machinery correctly and safely.

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.

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.
