You should be:

  1. warned of all the risks involved.

Making a claim.

If you use machinery at work on a daily basis you are at risk of injury, this is particularly true if your employer is not correctly following health and safety guidelines.

Many workers in environments such as factories, garages, food processing plants and construction sites who operate dangerous machinery have suffered injury. If you have worked in such an environment and have been harmed you can make a claim if your employer was at fault.

If you have been injured and any of the following describe your situation your employer can be held liable:

  • You were required to operate machinery but were not given adequate training.
  • You were asked to operate a machine which did not have a safety guard.
  • You were not given adequate safety equipment.

If you or a loved one has been injured at work call us for legal advice, once we have reviewed your case we can advise if you have a valid claim for compensation.

Are you still working for the company where you were injured?

If you are still working for the firm where you suffered your injury, you may be concerned that your employer could go on to discriminate against you for highlighting health & safety failings or bringing a claim.

If this is a concern be reassured bringing a claim is not grounds for dismissal.

If your employer does terminate your employment you are protected by the law, you are entitled to make a further claim and seek compensation for your job loss and demand re-instatement.
