Michael Lewin Solicitors helped Mr R claim wrist injury at work compensation after a tragic accident left him with a broken wrist; our legal experts in London were able to claim over £6000.00 in compensation for Mr R.
Mr R 44 from Southampton was climbing down some steps off the back of a truck when his accident occurred. A metal hook was hanging out which caused Mr R’s laces to become caught.
As a result of his laces being caught Mr R fell to lose his balance and fall to the ground. As he did so Mr R suffered a very painful broken wrist. Mr R was unable to work while his wrist was healing so not only was he suffering copious amounts of pain; he was also losing out on his income too.
In the past figures have shown that slip trip and fall incidents in the workplace have cost 40 workers their lives in one year. Also in a year over 15000 major injuries to workers have been caused by slips trips and falls and over 30000 workers have taken more than three days off work. It is estimated that the cost to society each year for slips trips and falls is around £800 million. Health and Safety Executive figures show that slips and trips are the most common cause of major injuries in the work place in Great Britain. Most workplace deaths are caused by falls from height.
