When 29 year old Mr L injured his back and leg at work he asked Michael Lewin Solicitors for legal advice; Michael Lewin have a wealth of experience with claims for a back injury leg injury fracture or break at work and they accepted his claim in the UK on a no win no fee basis.
Mr L from Milton Keynes was injured when a powered pallet truck ran into him at work. Employees using the trucks must have the correct training. They are simple vehicles but do present a higher risk of lower limb injuries. All operators should carry a certificate to prove their competence.
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.
Michael Lewin will not ask for payment from their clients who have been involved in an accident that wasn?t their fault; the broad range of injury claims they have dealt with from a broken finger or leg fracture to a brain injury either at work or in a public place ensures their clients are benefitting from an exceptional level of knowledge and expertise for their claim in the UK.
Employers of any size of organisation or company has got to by law arrange for a plan which identifies and tries to ameliorate all identified risks. A health and safety policy must be in place in every workplace taking into account the aforementioned risks. This policy should mention all the provisions which that company makes to protect their employees? health and safety.
This policy should be available for all employees to view and comment on at all times. The provisions which are mentioned in the health and safety policy document should all be able to be seen by employees.
At the conclusion of his case Mr L was awarded ?8250.00 in compensation.
Michael Lewin’s clients always receive 100% of the compensation.
