You could claim for an accident on an industrial estate if you have been injured at work during the last three years. Industrial estate accidents can be very serious and there have been cases where victims have died in collisions and other circumstances.
You could be entitled to compensation if your accident on an industrial estate was caused by the negligence of a fellow worker or a reckless employer. There are certain standards they must follow to ensure your safety. We can make a claim for you if this did not happen and you were put in unnecessary danger.
Can I claim for an accident on an industrial estate?
You have the same right as any other worker across the UK to claim for compensation when you have been inured at work in an accident that was not your fault. There is a three-year deadline for claims, though this can be extended depending on the accident type.
It is best to contact our advisers to discuss your eligibility, but if you would like to be a bit prepared before you call us you can complete our online 30-second test to find out for sure; this handy tool will also provide you with an estimate for your claim.
The majority of personal injury claims are processed via the telephone so you do not have to worry about attending hearings and you probably won’t have to go to court to receive your compensation. We cannot guarantee the estimate we provide you with but you can be sure that our solicitors will do everything they can to extract the most money from third party insurers and the courts. We know it can be a tough time after a serious accident but making the effort to start a claim could be the start of a new, exciting chapter in your life.
What can I claim for?
A no win, no fee claim can cover special and general damages incurred due to an accident. These damages will include the costs of any private medical bills, money spent on the train or bus to travel to physiotherapy sessions and prescription costs. They will also ensure you are compensated for the trauma and suffering caused.
Industrial estate injuries and causes
Industrial estates are one of the most dangerous working environments due to the various heavy machinery, vehicles and other powerful equipment and tools. It is the duty of your employer to ensure that everyone is trained and that health, safety, and risk assessment are prioritised.
They must always follow strict rules before you begin a working task. You have a right to work in a safe environment and should be provided with adequate safety equipment and clothing. Any negligence could make your employer liable.
You could claim for an accident on an industrial estate if you were struck by a tipper or lorry or crushed by a heavy piece of machinery. Broken bones, concussions, cuts, lacerations and crushing injuries are possibilities depending on the accident. Our solicitors will use evidence to prove these injuries and build your case for compensation.
