James Maxey, Personal Injury Compensation Claim Solicitor comments on UK Health and Safety Issues
Health and safety regulations may well have employers tearing their hair out, but when you deal with sad and traumatic work related personal injury accident claims, it is hard not to get frustrated at the amount of employers that haven’t bothered to train their staff properly or carry out work risk assessments.
Just recently I dealt with the death of a 17 year old boy, who fell from scaffolding simply because one bolt was missing and no risk assessment had been carried out. If simple and cost-effective measures had been taken by his employers, he would still be alive today. To top it off he had no dependents so his claim was worth peanuts.
Express Solicitors also recently won a compensation claim for a supermarket worker who slipped on a sprout – it sounds funny but the reality is that it shouldn’t have been on the floor and the woman who slipped suffered a very painful and long lasting back injury.
As personal injury experts, we haven’t really seen trends into new areas of work related accident claims. The number of accidents in the workplace is fairly static – which shows that not enough is being done by employers to prevent them. Any downturn in work related accidents has been very modest and is due to the fact that there is less heavy industry, than the fact that employers are getting better at preventing them.
Express Solicitors are no win, no fee work accident compensation claim solicitors with many years of personal injury claims experience and have brought thousands of different accident compensation claims including industrial accidents, slips, trips and falls and building site accidents.
