Mr L was the victim of an accident caused by inadequate and fault equipment; Michael Lewin Solicitors based in Leeds were able to make a claim for compensation on behalf of Mr L to reimburse him for the damages and any losses he sustained.
Mr L suffered a serious injury to his hand when he was involved in an accident with a defective machine at work. Thankfully Michael Lewin Solicitors were able to claim compensation on behalf of Mr L as the accident was not his fault his employer should have checked and regularly maintained all the machinery in the workplace. No employee should have to work with defective machinery.
The health and safety act was bought into force after being passed by Parliament in 1974. The aim of the health and safety at work act is to protect anyone in employment from coming to harm or sustaining an injury. Employers that fail to abide by the Act are negligent towards their staff and are fully responsible for any injuries that an employee sustains.
Appropriate training should also be given to any employees who use equipment in the workplace. If an employer fails to provide the appropriate training and an employee is injures as a result the employer is again guilty of neglect and is liable for any injuries to their employees.
