Michael Lewin work accident news: we can help if you have sustained a knee injury at work; our highly skilled solicitors aim to get you the largest amount of compensation they can manage.
Mrs K from Barton-upon-Humber was working when she sustained her knee injury. The fridge at work had been leaking water; no signs had been put up warning the employees of that fact and our client slipped on the water injuring her knee and leg.
Mrs K was 58 when her accident took place and she sustained soft tissue injuries and bruising to the affected areas after the fall. Perhaps partly due to her age her injuries took a lot longer to heal than she had hoped.
Employees should also look to check if their employer has employers liability and an up-to-date certificate of employers liability insurance. This certificate should clearly show the minimum level of cover and the company covered by the policy. This certificate does not give your employer the right to ignore any further health and safety guidelines however it is a statutory requirement to have this available on request. From 2008 employers may have received a copy of this certificate electronically this method of displaying the certificate has been acceptable since then. If you happen to notice that you workplace is not providing equipment which is fully up-to-date and safe to use then you need to inform the health and safety executive within your organisation.
