Mr E was awarded £5000.00 in industrial injury compensation after he sought the advice of the claims experts at Michael Lewin Solicitors in London.
Mr E from Northampton was 57 when his accident occurred. A door suddenly closed at work trapping Mr E’s finger. Mr E suffered horrific injuries to his hand and was in a lot of pain.
Michael Lewin Solicitors pursued compensation on behalf of Mr E. Due to the nature and the severity of the injuries that Mr E sustained we were able to secure £5000.00 in compensation. Mr E’s employers were found to be at fault and they were responsible for the accident that occurred.
Employers should be aware that non-abidance of health and safety requirements results in very serious consequences for themselves and their employees.
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.
