Accidents at Work: Getting back on the production line after an accident

The threat of accidents at work come as part of the territory when you work in a factory. Health and Safety Executive statistics show that of all the work-related injuries reported over the course of the year, workers in factories account for 16%. Even more worryingly, factories are the site for around a quarter of workplace fatalities.

However, just because they are a regular occurrence doesn’t mean that you should take being injured at work in a factory as par for the course. You may well be due some accidents at work compensation. Here’s a quick guide to what to do next.

Step one: Ask yourself, ‘was the accident my fault’

Assessing fault and establishing blame is a key part of the claims process. If your accident was the fault of someone else, either through direct cause or negligence, then you have a case for compensation. Consider the following points:

–  Did I have all the right protective equipment?

–  Was I properly trained and the task thoroughly explained?

–  Was I given the right tools for the job?

–  If it was an industrial spillage at work, was the area clearly signed and cordoned off?

If the answer to any of the above is no, then your work accident claim has a strong chance of being successful.

Step two: Get advice from the experts regarding accidents at work

Claiming for compensation following accidents at work can often be a daunting prospect. Also, the last thing you want is to be shortchanged so it’s therefore best to seek confirmation on the merits of your case from those in the know.
