There are so many different employment industries that an accident at work can take place in a variety of places such as warehouses, offices, construction sites etc. However, none are often more serious than employees who are involved in an accident whilst working in a factory.
Your employer owes you as an employee a duty to ensure that you are reasonably safe whilst at work even if this means you are sent to work at a location where you usually don’t, for example, another employer’s factory or warehouse.
Some of the most common types of accidents that occur in factories are as follows:
At Aequitas legal, we have specialist personal injury solicitors who can advise you whether you have a claim against your employer if you are injured at a factory. Many people express concern about pursuing their employer but many do not realise that in an accident at work, we would liaise with the employer’s liability insurer of your employer directly who would pay any damages and legal costs on their behalf.
Some of the most common injuries clients suffer in a factory accident include:
Not only are these injuries often extremely pain but because of the seriousness of the injury, it often means that you cannot work. The distress of the accident is therefore often made worse because of the financial implications of being absent from work. Our Solicitors understand the frustration this causes but are specialists in this field of law. Where possible, they will seek to request an interim payment to mitigate any financial loss and arrange rehabilitation to ensure the speediness of your recovery so you can return to work.
If you or a loved one have been injured while working in a factory and the accident was not your fault, get in touch with Aequitas Legal today.

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

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.
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.
The team at Aequitas Legal were excellent. They were very responsive to questions with appropriate answers as well as being very supportive. They reassured my husband & I throughout our case & helped to acquire an amazing settlement of our case without having to attend court. I would greatly recommend their services to anybody unreservedly.
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.
Fantastic service from Ansa. Shes worked hard on my case and kept me up to date and well informed on everything that was happening. Pleasure to deal with. She deserves the 5stars!

I represented my Client who was employed as a general assistant with a major national supermarket, who suffered bruising and grazing to his left knee as a result of moving a cage of orange juice from a lorry into the store, which caught on a divot on the ground and caused it to fall upon him.

I represented this Claimant who I had acted for successfully in the past. He was employed as a crib attendant – responsible form regrinding drills for his engineering company employers. When placing a regrinded drill into the cabinet in his workplace, the draws collapsed and the cabinet fell over onto him.

Had an accident? Have a read. You’ve seen the cheesey ‘have you had an accident at work’ adverts – but bad acting aside, the consequences can be serious. As well…Read more
