Health and safety regulations are just one of the things that could help keep machine operators safe, as is proper training. When these protocols haven’t been maintained it could be that your machine injury was due to someone else’s neglect.
Previous claims our solicitors have worked with involved avoidable accidents, such as:
These are just an example of some of the previous machine injury claims our solicitors have dealt with, but there are many more. If you’ve had an accident involving a machine at work, our solicitors will be able to advise as to whether you’re entitled to compensation.
These injuries can vary significantly in severity. Some hand injuries are relatively minor, whereas some may require long periods off work, or complete loss of function in hands. Similarly, eye injuries could lead to complete blindness. Such extreme injuries are not as common as minor scrapes, but when they occur, it’s important you are protected from the financial burdens which will follow. Compensation can go a long way to alleviate the pressures of being off work either short-term or permanently.
Our expert legal team can provide advice on your options, and can compile evidence to help your case. Many machine injury claims are settled outside of Court, but either way, we will talk you through the process and will keep you informed of your case at every step.
There are strict time limits when making an injury claim so make sure you contact us without delay after your injury. We work hard to ensure that not only our clients get the compensation they deserve, but to highlight the problems unsafe equipment or practices at work can cause, helping to eliminate injuries in the work place all together.
