Mrs M from London contacted Michael Lewin Solicitors for legal advice after she sustained a head injury in an accident that wasn?t her fault; Michael Lewin offer professional legal advice regarding any head injury at work or in a public place and will pursue a claim in the UK for any genuine cases.
Mrs M was injured when a steel shop shutter fell on her head.
Head injuries can vary in their severity but are ultimately dangerous and risky to the victim. The law is there to protect people against injuries like Mrs M’s.
Every UK employer has a duty of care. This is critical to the health safety and general welfare of all employees. Not all employers are aware of the implications of the duty of care. But it doesn?t matter how small a business happens to be. Where there’s any member of staff there is a duty of care responsibility.
An employer should have a person who deals with health and safety matters. This person must be legally competent. In other words that person should have the ability to understand the concerns around health and safety.
A duty of care is a much used legal term which comes into play when a company or organisation does something which could be reasonably expected to cause another person harm either intentionally or through neglect. This harm could be either a physical injury the most common type we see here or it could be a mental injury or the financial consequences of an accident could be harmful to the individual and his or her family. In a workplace an employer must provide a minimum of reasonable care towards all its employees. If this duty of care is neglected and an accident subsequently occurs employees are further covered by being able to take their employer to court to get financial compensation for any harm caused by the employer’s negligence or non-adherence to their duty of care.
Michael Lewin accepted Mrs M’s case on a no win no fee basis and worked hard to resolve her claim for her head injury as quickly as possible; the team of solicitors in the UK are very sympathetic to any clients who have been injured at work or in a public place and want to make a claim in the UK.
Employers of any size of organisation or company has got to by law arrange for a plan which identifies and tries to ameliorate all identified risks. A health and safety policy must be in place in every workplace taking into account the aforementioned risks. This policy should mention all the provisions which that company makes to protect their employees? health and safety.
This policy should be available for all employees to view and comment on at all times. The provisions which are mentioned in the health and safety policy document should all be able to be seen by employees. Michael Lewin offer their clients a personal service and strive for the maximum compensation.
Their clients always receive 100% of the compensation for their injuries.
