Michael Lewin are delighted to help clients after they have suffered from an injury at work; we make the compensation process straightforward and efficient.
Ms D from Shifnal in Shropshire was 31 when she sustained an injury at work. She suffered a badly injured hand after she caught her hand on defective tiles in her workplace.
Our client suffered cuts and soft tissue injuries as a result of the accident. Hand accidents can take a long time to heal fully as it is very difficult to fully rest your hands whilst going about your usual duties.
Defective equipment which employers don?t replace and which causes injury to employees accounts for a lot of our work here at Michael Lewin.
If defective equipment has caused an accident in the workplace and resulted in any injuries to employees all possible causes will be investigated. Service records will be checked reports of defects or problems will be examined and the frequency of inspections will be taken into account.
Employers must not only create a safe working environment but they must enforce it and ensure that it is adhered to. They are responsible for any employee who has either not been trained or is failing to follow correct safety procedures.
