Michael Lewin have been thrilled to help Mr H after his office accident; we were delighted to be able to get compensation for him after he made a claim.
Mr H from Manchester was 63 when he tripped on uneven paving at work and was injured. Our client sustained multiple injuries.
Possibly due to his age our client took longer than he had hoped to recover fully from his multiple injuries. Being older when you sustain an accident can mean that injuries take longer to heal than might be expected.
Our client was not at fault for the accident happening so he came to Michael Lewin for help to make a claim.
Your employer has a duty of care to:
? Prevent any risks to your health.
? Make the workplace a safe environment for you to carry out your work.
? Ensure that all machinery and plant is safe to use.
? Ensure that safe working practises have been set up and are being followed.
? Provide adequate first aid facilities.
? Inform you about any potential hazards involved in the work that you do.
? Set up any emergency plans should an incident or accident occur.
? Make sure that all materials in the workplace are stored handled and used safely.
Should your employer be in breach of any of the above and you have been injured as a result Michael Lewin Solicitors may be able to help you make a claim.
If Michael Lewins team of accident consultants can helpafter an office accident to get the compensation you are entitled to then come to our professional staff for claim advice.
Employees are also responsible for their own health and safety in the workplace. You do have the right to refuse to do a job if you believe it is not safe or if you have not been provided with the correct equipment to do the job. Your employer cannot dismiss you or threaten to dismiss you if you refuse to work for genuine health and safety concerns for yourself or your colleagues. If you have any concerns about health and safety at work you should always talk to your employer first; they may simply be unaware of any problems. If your employer does not listen to your concerns and act upon them as a final resort you may have to report them to the local authority’s environmental health department.
Michael Lewin are aware that for their clients financial compensation does not negate the emotional and physical turmoil that an accident causes but we know that the compensation can allow the family a treat after such an unpleasant experience.
