If you have asked the question ‘can I claim for an injury on a factory tour?’ then Accident Advice Helpline can give you a quick and simple answer.
With just a few pieces of information, our trained advisors will be able to help you decide whether it will be worth pursuing a claim for an injury on a factory tour.
Can I claim for an injury on a factory tour if I fall?
Yes. Slips, trips and falls are some of the most common ways in which people injure themselves and some of the main sources of compensation claims. If you are on a factory tour and you trip on a loose tile or slip on a wet floor that does not have adequate warning signs then you may be eligible for a payment. All you need to do is prove your fall was the fault of someone else.
What about if I am hurt by machinery?
Factory tours should be conducted in a safe way with a trained guide leading you and, in the main, visitors should be kept away from any dangerous machinery as they tour the premises. If, for some reason, you get too close to a machine or slip near a piece of machinery and are hurt then you may have a good basis for a compensation claim. Again, you will need to prove there was some negligence on the part of someone else, for example the guide was not paying close attention, or the machinery did not have proper safety guards.
How do I make my claim?
Making a claim is simple. First, contact Accident Advice Helpline and ask if you are eligible to claim for an injury on a factory tour. One of our trained advisors will ask you a few simple questions to get the ball rolling. Alternatively, you can visit our website and get started by taking our 30-second test.
Once you have decided to go ahead one of our solicitors will deal with your claim and you will be sent a number of simple forms to complete.
Is there anything else I can do to help?
You can assist us by providing as much information as possible. If there were witnesses to your accident then get their contact details. Keep detailed notes of any treatment you receive for your injury from your doctor or any other medical staff. Make a record of any loss of income you may have incurred through time off work, as well as receipts for any expenses.
What should I expect?
Once you have made your claim for an injury on a factory tour, our staff will guide you through each step. Most cases can be dealt with simply over the telephone, although we may need you to go for a medical assessment at your convenience. Although it is very unlikely, you may need to go to court to settle your case.
We cannot guarantee the exact amount of your settlement, nor can we say how long it will take, as each case is different and depends very much on the circumstances of the accident and the other parties involved.
