What sort of accident can I claim for?
Factories can be incredibly dangerous places to work, with all sorts of hazards all around, from chemicals to machinery and from gantries to forklifts. That's why we deal with a lot of serious factory injuries, including broken bones, chemical burns and even slips, trips and falls. These often happen when safety equipment is defective, or safety rules haven't been followed. But the main causes of factory accidents are:
- Slips, trips and falls: caused by unsafe floors or liquid spills
- Falls from height: caused by unsafe scaffolding or gantries
- Machine injuries: caused by defective or missing safety guards
- Lifting injuries: due to lack of training or equipment
- Forklift truck injuries: caused by unsafe practices
If you have been hurt because of these or any other health and safety failures in a factory, talk to us today about claiming compensation.
Who's to blame for my factory accident?
If you work in a factory, your employer has to follow regulations called the ‘Six Pack', covering health and safety across six key areas. But the biggest part of these regulations deals with every employer's legal requirement to carry out a full health and safety assessment to help stop accidents happening in the workplace. Where this hasn't been done – and you have been hurt as a result – you have the right to claim the compensation you need and deserve from your employer's Employer's Liability Insurance policy.
So if you have been hurt in a factory accident and it wasn't your fault, you owe it to yourself to start a No Win No Fee compensation claim today. Talk to one of our friendly advisors now on 0800 175 7900.
