Claiming for injury caused by faulty equipment or machinery.
If you have been injured at work because of faulty equipment or machinery, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim against your employer.
Machinery is used in many workplaces such as factories and garages, and if this machinery is not correctly guarded, maintained or used it can be dangerous.
It is your employer’s responsibility to carrying out a risk assessment of your workplace. This includes ensuring that any machinery you use is maintained in good working order, any faults are repaired and a guard is fitted to protect you from injury.
Your employer must make sure that you receive adequate training on how operate works machinery correctly, and must also ensure safety equipment is provided to protect you from harm.
If you have been asked to operate machinery with little or no training, and have been injured as a result, we can help you make a personal injury compensation claim.
Common injuries include:
- Injuries to the hands or fingers
- Eye injuries caused by items being ejected at high speed
- Head injuries caused by items being ejected at high speed
- Injuries caused by items of clothing or jewellery being caught in moving parts.
Faulty equipment or machinery can trap, crush or cut body parts, and if this has happened to you we can help you to make a claim against your employer.
