Mr M from Staffordshire was awarded a massive £10000 in industrial accidents compensation after using Michael Lewin’s claim solicitors in London to pursue his case.
Mr M was cleaning the fryers out at work when his injury was sustained. As Mr M was cleaning the fryers boiling water spilt onto him. Mr M sustained serious scalds and burns to his skin.
Mr M’s employers were found to be liable for the injuries he had sustained and the court ordered them to pay Mr M £10000.00 in compensation. Although Mr M may have permanent scarring on his skin we hope the compensation he was awarded with go some way to helping Mr M come to terms with his accident.

? Make the workplace a safe environment for you to carry out your work.
? Ensure that all machinery and plant is safe to use.
? Ensure that safe working practises have been set up and are being followed.
? Provide adequate first aid facilities.
? Inform you about any potential hazards involved in the work that you do.
? Set up any emergency plans should an incident or accident occur.
? Make sure that all materials in the workplace are stored handled and used safely.
Should your employer be in breach of any of the above and you have been injured as a result Michael Lewin Solicitors may be able to help you make a claim.
Industrial accidents happen all too frequently but if the accident was not your fault you may be entitled to make a compensation claim; Michael Lewin Solicitors in London are here to guide you through the process of claiming and aim to make the process go as smoothly as possible.
Adequate information training and instruction is required for all workers but this is not a set amount. This will be dependent on the age and competency of the employees; for new processes or young/inexperienced employees the supervision will need to be on a far more frequent basis than for established working procedures. Also training to use a computer can allow mistakes which will not be costly in terms of employee’s physical well-being but mistakes cannot be allowed to happen when younger workers are in charge of welding equipment or large electrically powered blades.
Section 3 requires the employer to ensure that people not employed but who could be affected by his operation are not placed at risk. The general public customers visitors or contractors attending the site might need training or supervision to minimise the risk to their health and safety while on site or relevant personal protective equipment (PPE) along with training on how to use it correctly may need to be provided.
Whether your accident was at work or in a public place if you have sustained an injury that was not your fault you may be entitled to compensation. Seeking advice for a qualified professional immediately after your accident is advisable.
