Michael Disken - Accident compensation solicitor

Work accident compensation solicitor - Leeds

For more than two decades, Michael has been successfully securing compensation for his clients. His expertise rests primarily with accidents at work and, as a result of this, he has developed a deep understanding of the workplace regulations that exist to protect workers in whatever environment they find themselves. Whether you work in an office, manufacturing plant, on a construction site or in one of the various types of retail outlets such as shops and supermarkets, Michael knows which regulations apply and what constitutes a breach of those regulations, and therefore negligence.

His detailed knowledge of the circumstances that apply to breaches of these many regulations means that he can quickly identify if your accident at work has been due to negligence, either by your employer, or perhaps a work colleague.

In addition to accidents at work compensation claims, Michael has also successfully won road accident compensation claims.

Based at our Leeds office, Michael takes great care to listen to the concerns of the client and makes sure to keep them informed of what is happening throughout the claim process. Michael believes in assessing whether there is a potential claim as quickly as possible, and then advising the client of the realistic possibility of securing compensation for their injury.

Amongst the clients for accident at work compensation claims that Michael has dealt with, are many for whom Michael has secured six figure sums in accident at work compensation. His determination means that he strives to follow through each accident compensation claim to a successful conclusion, no matter how complex the circumstances.

His professionalism and attention to detail will ensure that you receive the just compensation to which you and your family are entitled.

Successful work accident compensation claims

Here is just a small sample of the successful accident at work compensation claims which Michael has been involved in

Work accident compensation – hit by falling object

Michael’s client was struck on the shoulder by a heavy object that fell as a result of defective lifting gear. Although he was offered alternative work with his employer, none of them was suitable for the client, either because of the injuries sustained in the accident at work, or because he did not hold the required skills for the new role.

Eventually, the client was retired on ill health grounds, though he has since found alternative, suitable employment.

Michael was forced to issue proceedings in order to bring the other side to the negotiating table. However, a few days before trial, they made an increased offer in accident at work compensation. Michael advised the client to accept which he did. The compensation included a sum for loss of earnings in a less physical job.

Work accident compensation

Michael’s client had suffered a serious injury to his hand in an accident at work. The client was employed as a machinist and had completed a manoeuvre to cut a piece of timber. Although he returned the blade to its safety position, as he removed the wood, the blade broke lose, swung down and caught the back of his hand, severing his finger.

His employer, the defendant, admitted liability for this accident at work. Michael negotiated a settlement of almost £50,000 on the grounds that there had been several breaches of the workplace regulations. In particular, the client’s employer had breached the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, by their failure to maintain work equipment in efficient working order and in good repair.
