Mr S from Derbyshire was awarded compensation after sustained an injury at his workplace; he came to industrial accident expert solicitors at Michael Lewin.
Mr B from Belper in Derbyshire had been injured after he fell off a platform at his workplace. He worked in construction which is classed as an industry in its own right. He suffered bruising and is lucky not to have been more seriously hurt.
Michael Long from Michael Lewin’s team feels very strongly about industrial injuries at work ?Construction and manual work will always have a higher accident rate due to human error than office work; I wish industrial employers would take the necessary care to protect their staff.?
Your employer has a duty of care to:
? Prevent any risks to your health.
? Make the workplace a safe environment for you to carry out your work.
? Ensure that all machinery and plant is safe to use.
? Ensure that safe working practises have been set up and are being followed.
? Provide adequate first aid facilities.
? Inform you about any potential hazards involved in the work that you do.
? Set up any emergency plans should an incident or accident occur.
? Make sure that all materials in the workplace are stored handled and used safely.
Should your employer be in breach of any of the above and you have been injured as a result Michael Lewin Solicitors may be able to help you make a claim.
You can call expert accident lawyers at Michael Lewin to start your compensation claim if you have suffered from an industrial accident which was not your fault.
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.
Michael Lewin will guide you through the claims process in a courteous professional and expedient manner. We have dealt with claims like yours before and we are able to de-mystify the whole claims process.
