Machinery Accident Claims

As using heavy machinery poses a threat to employees safety, regulations must be in place in order to prevent machinery accidents from happening. If an employer fails to implement these regulations this is classed as negligence and employees will be entitled to make a machinery accident claim.

Our solicitors are specialists in machinery accident claims, no claim is too big or too small for us therefore if you have been involved in an accident and have suffered injuries as a result our solicitors can help you.

Why do Machinery Accidents happen?

In most cases machinery accidents are caused by an employer’s failure to meet health and safety regulations outlined in the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974).

The machinery used in an industrial workplace can be highly dangerous therefore it is essential that it is used with care and precision. When using dangerous machinery employees must be provided with safety training, no matter whether they have used similar equipment during previous employment.

Alongside providing machinery safety training employers must also ensure that the machines are serviced and, if needed, repaired regularly as accidents can also occur as a result of faulty machinery however this can be easily avoided.

Our solicitors have also seen many cases where machinery accidents have been caused by employers failing to provide safety guards and protective clothing to their staff members, which is another health and safety requirement.

Common injuries caused by Machinery Accidents

Injuries caused by a machinery accident can alter your life forever, making it difficult for you to carry out mundane tasks, such as cooking and cleaning unaided.

Some of the most common injuries caused by machinery accidents include:

  • Severe bruising and soft tissue damage
  • Broken Bones
  • Head injuries
  • Amputation of a limb e.g the finger or arm
  • Back or neck injuries

We understand that being injured through no fault of your own can cause both financial and emotional strain which is why our accident at work solicitors will strive to secure the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
