Mrs S was 45 years old when she was injured at work by faulty equipment; if you need expert legal advice regarding accident compensation claims Michael Lewin Solicitors in the UK are the professionals to call.
Mrs S from Paignton in Devon was entitled to make a claim when she sustained injuries at work because of defective equipment not through any fault of her own. The law is there to protect people against accidents that injure them. Michael Lewin Solicitors endeavour to ensure that their clients receive the maximum compensation for their injuries.
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.
Michael Lewin accept their cases on a no win no fee basis and don?t ask their clients for any payment up front; clients can talk to the team of solicitors regarding faulty equipment and any accident they have suffered which entitles them to compensation claims against a third party in the UK.
Employers need to ensure that all equipment is regularly checked so that the safety of their employees is not put at risk. 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. Michael Lewin always ensure their clients receive 100% of the compensation and work really hard to resolve their cases as quickly as possible.
