Miss H made a claim for compensation after she was the victim of faulty and defective equipment in the workplace. Miss H received a nasty electric shock from the telephone headset she was using at work. Oakwood Solicitors were able to secure a four figure sum of compensation on behalf of Miss H and we hope it helps her to recover from her trauma.
Employees can be seriously injured by way of faulty equipment which they have been given or by using defective equipment which then causes an accident. These accidents then have penalties from the employer needing to replace or re-train the member of staff who was injured to possibly paying out for rehabilitation and compensation for financial losses which the employee has suffered due to the accident.
Employers may also have to undergo an investigation and face the closure of their firm if serious negligence has resulted in a near-fatal accident on their premises. These are extreme consequences which employers rarely consider but checking equipment can prevent a great deal of heartache further down the line.
