Michael Lewin have many years? experience with making a compensation claim for an accident at work in Manchester that our client was the victim of. We were thrilled to be able to secure a massive£6500.00 in compensation for Mr P.
Mr P was 32 and he lived in Harrow when his claim for compensation took place after an accident in work. He was injured in a very bizarre accident; a wall at his workplace fell down on him. This accident could potentially have been avoided if Mr P’s workplace had taken precautions and have a regular risk assessment performed on all areas of his workplace. If defects in any part of a building or its fixtures are noted and acted upon then far fewer accidents would happen.
Employers should actively encourage input from their employees as it is the staff who frequently notice that equipment or fittings or as in this case part of the fabric of the building requires repair. The fact that an employer did not notice a defect as it occurred is not an acceptable defence in the eyes of the law.
A competent person who may require extra training should be the known and named health and safety executive in smaller businesses the owner or director may become the health and safety representative but in some more manual and larger organisations there may be a whole division devoted to health and safety issues.
