If you have had a neck or head injury at work that was not your fault Michael Lewin Solicitors in Leeds may be able to help you make a claim for compensation.

When Mrs P had her accident in the large superstore where she was an employee she sought advice from the specialist accident at work solicitors at Michael Lewin. We advised her to make a claim for compensation as she had been injured through no fault of her own. A crate fell from the dolly that Mrs P was using in the workplace and caused an injury to her neck.

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.
