    How to claim factory worker injury compensation


    You might think that working in a factory is a dangerous job – it can be, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Wherever you work, your employer is responsible for ensuring your safety whilst you’re carrying out your job, and if you’ve been injured whilst working in a factory and somebody else is to blame, why not considering making a factory worker injury compensation claim? Forget all the talk of ‘compensation culture’ – workers who have been injured are entitled to claim compensation from their employers, and here at Accident Advice Helpline we’ve been helping workers with personal injury claim since 2000, on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.

    Common factory injuries

    The type of injuries you could sustain in a factory accident depend on the type of factory you work in. For example, if you work in a food processing factory, you could be injured whilst cleaning an industrial oven. Most factories have one thing in common though – they have industrial machinery with moving parts that could cause serious injuries.

    One of the most commonly reported factory injuries is crush injuries to the hands, arms, feet and legs. If you are cleaning or operating machinery and your hand or arm is caught between moving rollers or belts, you could suffer serious fractures and crush injuries which could even lead to the loss of a limb. Loose clothing, scarves or long hair could also become caught in machinery, leading to serious injuries.

    Other injuries which could occur in a factory are burns from industrial equipment, broken bones, cuts and bruises from a slip, trip or fall (often caused by wet floors or inadequate lighting), manual handling injuries from lifting heavy stock or equipment, repetitive strain injuries from carrying out repetitive tasks and head, neck and back injuries caused by objects falling from height. At the end of the day, it’s up to your employer to ensure that workers are safe whilst carrying out their duties, and if you feel your employer has been negligent, we could help you to claim factory worker injury compensation.
