Michael Lewin were delighted to be of service to help Mr M of Neath after he was injured because of inadequate and faulty equipment; his claim was successful.

Mr M suffered an accident in his workplace. He fractured his thumb whilst turning a faulty wheel on a work vehicle.

Mr M had to go to hospital from work to have his hand x-rayed; there it was quickly ascertained that he had sustained a fracture to his thumb. He had to take pain relief medication to try to stop the pain in his thumb. He suffered swelling and bruising around his whole hand and his thumb was placed in a splint to heal.

If defective equipment has caused an accident in the workplace all possible causes will be investigated. Service records will be looked over and reports of defects will be examined. The frequency of inspections will also be taken into account if an investigation is required.

Employers must create a safe working environment and they must police this environment to ensure that this set of procedures are adhered to strictly it is the employer’s responsibility for any employee who has been incorrectly trained or fails to follow the correct safety procedures if they come to harm.

He had to go to the doctor’s on several occasions to have his injury checked.
