Mr D was injured at work due to faulty and defective equipment in the workplace; the faulty equipment accident claims specialist at Michael Lewin Solicitors in Leeds helped Mr D pursue compensation for the accident that was not his fault.
Mr D sustained an injury when he stood on a manhole cover. The manhole cover he stood on was only a makeshift one and had been put there temporarily to cover the open manhole. As it was only made of plywood it was not very strong so when Mr D stood on it it broke and he fell into it.
Mr D approached Michael Lewin Solicitors with his claim and as it was a genuine claim and the accident was not Mr D’s fault we were happy to act on his behalf.
