Michael Lewin are experienced workplace accident solicitors; we get compensation for our clients on all aspects of their claims in Manchester.
Mrs K from Barton-upon-Humber was 58 when she sustained her injury at work. 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.
Our client sustained soft tissue injuries and bruising to multiple areas of her body after her accident. Knee injuries can be very difficult to recuperate from fully as the knee is needed for walking driving and many other activities which we take for granted daily.
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 spillages are cleared up rapidly. If a spillage cannot be cleared away immediately for whatever reason then hazard signs should be placed to warn others of the increased danger. Very small changes in routines should be made to prevent this type of 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 will be much better.
I have suffered a workplace accident and I need to get compensation for my injuries; what are things that I can make claims for in Manchester?
Some of these situations can be avoided by training staff correctly in things like the routines and expectations of what to do in the event of noticing liquids on the floor. Sadly many workplaces do not provide the correct amount of training for their employees. There are rules which state in the 1974 health and safety act that adequate information training and instruction is required of all workers. This training is not a set amount; it will be dependent on the age and ability of the employee. Supervision and training should be much greater for new processes and for young and inexperienced employees.
Michael Lewin can help if you have sustained injuries in work which were not caused by yourself. Our fees are taken from the other side and you receive the full 100% of the compensation settlement you are awarded. We have a great deal of pride in being able to ensure that clients are adequately compensated for the injuries they sustain.
