Mr S from Stafford was 41 when he was injured at his workplace. He was extremely fortunate not to have been much more badly damaged that he was. A falling metal bar at work hit him and caused his injuries.
Our client considers himself very lucky not to be much more seriously hurt. Employers have a duty of care to their staff to ensure that all items which are not being used are stored correctly. Incorrect storage causes many many accidents which we see here at Michael Lewin. Very minor and simple adjustments should be made prior to an accident occurring these simple adjustments may cost a little more in the first instance however once the initial outlay had been paid for the consequences for staff would be much better.
Many directors are not aware that they can be intentionally liable for any related offences such as the common law offence of gross negligence manslaughter. Under common law gross negligence manslaughter is proven when directors of the company cause death by their own grossly negligent behaviour. Michael Lewin believe that directors never actually think through the terrible consequences of small acts of neglect. Most directors are unaware that offences such as these are actually punishable by sentences such as life imprisonment.

The health and safety act 1974 has been in force for many years as such Michael Lewin areof the opinion that employers should be aware of their legal obligations.
