Responsibility for workers in any sector lies with the employer or business owner and they have a duty to abide by current health and safety guidelines.
All employers should hold an Employer’s Liability insurance policy. This type of insurance policy will cover the company in the event of an employee injuring themselves at work also covering any compensation they may claim.
Our client was a waiter who was injured at work as he was descending some poorly maintained steps at the restaurant where he worked. He slipped and fell resulting in a knee injury.
The restaurant owners denied liability and after obtaining medical evidence we issued proceedings.
We received an offer from the defendant and the case settled for £6500.
Our client said: “Many thanks for your outstanding service, sticking with me when there were ups and downs. It was an amazing outcome – thank you very much!” G Hoilett.
