Work accidents and personal injury claims are an area in which Michael Lewin Solicitors specialise in the UK so they were able to support Mr S when he was hurt in a fall at work.
48 year old Mr S from Bradford in West Yorkshire was injured at work when he slipped over a broken grate. This is a classic example of one of the many causes of trips and falls in the work place or in a public place. Injuries caused by trips over grates pot holes or any uneven surface can vary considerably. Luckily many accidents result in minor injuries such as cuts and bruises. However in more serious cases a trip or fall can lead to sprains fractures breaks nasty lacerations and even serious head injuries. The severity of the injury and the level of hazard which caused the fall will impact the compensation award.
In any organisation there will be a senior member of staff responsible for the health and safety of the employees. This person is responsible for conducting risk assessments in all areas of the work place. This indentifies any health and safety risks to employees. The rules apply regardless of the size of an organisation.
