19 year old Miss M from the market town of Haverhill contacted Michael Lewin Solicitors when she sustained injuries at work due to faulty equipment; whatever the injury whether it be a facial injury back or brain injury if you are not at fault Michael Lewin can seek compensation on your behalf and make a claim against your employer in the UK.
Like any other employee Miss M assumed that her working environment was safe and was not prepared for the danger of defective work equipment.
She was not responsible for the maintenance of the equipment and was therefore not at fault for her accident or the resulting injuries. 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.
