Mr S is delighted with compensation of £4000.00 that he received after approaching Michael Lewin for help after his knee injury; if you have suffered from any knee injury at work call our understanding and professional staff at Michael Lewin.
Mr S from Liverpool suffered a bad knee injury whilst carrying out his routine tasks at work. He had to climb onto the conveyor belt.
Suddenly he injured his knee whilst climbing on the conveyor belt. Knees are more susceptible to twisting or stretching injuries taking the joint through a greater range of motion than it can tolerate.
If the knee is stressed from a specific direction then the ligament trying to hold it in place against that force can tear. Ligament stretching or tears are called sprains. These sprains are graded as first second or third degree based upon how much damage has occurred. Injured knees can take a long time to fully heal as the joint is used so frequently.
Mr S asked Michael Lewin to take his knee injury claim as he felt that his employers had neglected several of their important duties of care towards their employees.
