Mr W was involved in a nasty accident at work at the age of 61; Michael Lewin Solicitors have experience in dealing with construction site accidents and were able to claim compensation of behalf of Mr W thanks to our employer liability experts in Leeds.
Mr W was undertaking some plumbing work at the time of his accident. Mr W was using the access tunnel that took him to where the maintenance work was being carried out as Mr W was going through the access tunnel the floor fell through. Mr W fell through the floor of the access tunnel and suffered painful injuries as a result.
As the accident was not his fault Michael Lewin Solicitors were able to work on behalf of Mr W in order to secure him the compensation he deserved. We don?t just claim compensation for the injuries that have been sustained in an accident; we also pursue compensation to cover any losses that an accident victim has occurred as a result of the accident taking place.
So if for example a client was to have suffered a badly broken leg and had to take 3 months off work they would have lost out on a significant amount of their usual wages. If in that time they needed painkillers and anti-inflammatory medication tablets from the doctor they would have had to pay prescription charges too. The client could have also suffered financially if they had to pay travel charges to go to a faraway hospital in order to receive treatment. If this is the case Michael Lewin aim to get all of these costs reimbursed by the liable party.
