55 year old Mr W from Hayes called Michael Lewin Solicitors when he suffered injuries at work due to defective work equipment; Michael Lewin will accept a genuine non-fault case for a facial injury back injury or any basically any injury at work and seek the maximum compensation in the UK for their client.
It was the beginning of the summer when Mr W was unfortunate enough to get injured when he unknowingly used equipment at work which was faulty. It was this negligence which enabled Mr W to proceed with a claim for compensation.
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. Mr W sought legal advice from Michael Lewin’s expert team of solicitors who are highly qualified to deal with accidents involving a facial injury back injury or any injury for which the client is not liable; they work tirelessly to negotiate the maximum compensation for each client they help in the UK.
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.
Employers must ensure that they comply with legal requirements including:
? Avoid potentially dangerous work involving manual handling; if these risks cannot be avoided they must be reduced.
? Provide health supervision as required.
? Provide protective clothing and/or equipment.
? Ensure that the correct warning signs are provided.
All employers have more statutory requirements but these are some of the main ones should your employers not have met these legal minimum requirements we can help. Call us to discuss the potential compensation you could claim if your employer neglected to fulfil his legal requirements.
When an employee suffers an accident at work and sustains an injury through no fault of their own they can make a claim against their employer.
