    How to claim factory work accident compensation


    Do you work in a factory? Perhaps you’re employed at a food processing factory or work in a factory which manufactures electronics? Whatever type of factory you work in the hours can be long and the work can be repetitive, but the last thing you expect is to be involved in an accident at work which leaves you injured. Even minor injuries could mean taking time off work to recover, which can have a knock on effect on your earnings, leading to stress, depression and anxiety. Making a claim for factory work accident compensation can take a weight off your mind – Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation you so rightfully deserve, on a 100% no win, no fee basis.

    How did your accident happen?

    Accidents in factories could happen in a number of different ways – the key thing is that in order to make a personal injury claim, you’ll have to prove that somebody else was to blame. So if your employer or a colleague is responsible for your accident, you could find yourself eligible to claim factory work accident compensation. But how did your accident happen?

    Common causes of factory accidents include:

    • Wet or slippery floors, leading to a slip
    • Damaged flooring which could cause a trip or fall
    • Repetitive movements, leading to repetitive strain injury
    • Lifting heavy equipment or stock which could cause a manual handling injury
    • Heavy machinery with moving parts causing crush injuries and leading to amputations
    • Objects falling from height – for example whilst being moved by a forklift truck
    • Being struck by a vehicle such as a forklift
    • Faulty machinery causing burns, lacerations or electric shock

    One of the most common types of injuries factory workers claim for is crush injuries – for example if your hand has been crushed between the moving parts of a machine, you could lose use of your fingers or even require amputation.

    Moving on from your accident

    Your injuries may leave you unable to work in future – we can’t change that but we can help you to move on with your life and feel happier about the future. You could receive a personal injury settlement as compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings, both now and in the future. Give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500 if you’ve been injured in an accident whilst working in a factory. It’s free to call and get confidential advice, and there’s no obligation to proceed with a claim.
