Factory accident claims 

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:

 

  • Objects falling and causing crushing injuries or broken bones
  • Accidents involving a fork-lift truck, for example, because the driver collides with someone or moves something which falls onto someone and causes injury
  • Slipping on spillages such as liquids, chemicals, water etc • Tripping on objects lying around or obstructing traffic routes
  • Faulty machinery which someone could become entangled or trapped in
  • Injuries suffered from manual handling tasks

 

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:

 

  • Amputations
  • Back injuries
  • Cuts and burns
  • Scarring
  • Broken bones to all areas of the body including foot, leg, ankle, back and limbs
  • Head injuries

 

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.
