Dangerous Machinery Accident Claims

It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure that all machinery and equipment provided at work is safe for use. If you suffer an accident because of faulty or defective machinery or equipment, you may have a good case for claiming compensation from your employer. For example, your employer may not have had any system in place for maintaining the machinery and this failure caused you to suffer injury.

Your employer has a duty to ensure that workers using machinery or equipment are adequately trained to use it properly and safely and understands any risks in using it. Your employer is also liable for any acts or omissions which another employee of theirs does or doesn’t do which causes you injury. For example, if your work colleague misused equipment because they had not been properly shown how to use it and it subsequently caused you injury.

Most of these kinds of accidents take place in:

  • Factories
  • Construction sites
  • Warehouses
  • Garages

Dangerous equipment can crush, trap and cut body parts which come into contact with them. Some of the most common injuries occurring in this way are:

  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Amputations
  • Crush injuries
  • Burns
  • Muscle damage
  • Even death

These injuries often leave employees with permanent symptoms such as constant or frequent pain/numbness, scarring and psychological distress. If you have been injured by dangerous or faulty machinery or equipment, we can help you make a successful claim with our aim always being to act in your best interests and maximise the compensation you are entitled to recover.

"A star in the making"

I’d just like to give a very positive feedback to Ansa Rashid took on my case & finally got things moving. Before that I had Susan Mason who never answered my calls or emails & the case was ongoing still 3 years on. Ansa took over, got things moving & even through her busy day rang me mostly every week, sometimes on the phone an hour or so. I can not fault this woman she is amazing at her job. Very professional, caring, trustworthy & motivational. Plenty of times I wanted to to throw the towel in but she just wouldn’t let me give up. The case took 4 years in the end & even though we didn’t win I’d still recommend her to everyone. Thank you Ansa you are a star In the making

" ‘in-Case’ app makes things so simple"

I was involved in an accident which was not my fault, and was recommended to use Aequitas Legal. From the start, the whole journey with the team was both efficient, professional and sophisticated, with everyone essentially making the process so easy. Their ‘in-Case’ App made simple things like documents and letters so accessible, and meant I could access any import documents at anytime in seconds. I first spoke to Sucheet, who was the gentleman in charge of the company, who explained how everything would work, and pointed me in the direction of Connor, who would be my main liaison during the case. Together, they both ensured I was given the best advice, and seamlessly helped me through the case, which was concluded with a positive outcome! I could not recommend this company more, and will always be my go-to firm.

"Amazing determination"

I was amazed on how determined the team were in seeing my case through. If you are looking for a reliable, easy and transparent team to handle your case, here they are. I would like to thank Somia who I believe either led or coordinated my case for doing a fantastic job in both seeing the case through and communication.

"Professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply"

Highly recommend Aequitas who have recently dealt with my successful case. Special thanks to James Sloane who made the process much easier ; very professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply. Also very encouraging and supportive with regular updates as well as spot on with getting paperwork and documents organised.
For someone like myself who has never been involved in a legal process I'm delighted with how my case was handled with this company.
