Maintenance is an important part of life. We create machinery of all kinds but unless that machinery is maintained it cannot always do the jobs we intend it to. Maintenance engineers can therefore be found in lots of different workplaces, helping to keep things running as smoothly as possible. When their job is done well, they can minimise the number of breakdowns that occur, simply by maintaining and servicing everything whenever required.
The world of industry will employ plenty of maintenance engineers. However, the industrial workplace must also provide a safe place to work with the minimum of potential hazards present each day. If health and safety is not paid proper attention, someone could be injured and claim maintenance engineer injury compensation as a result.
How might you end up claiming?
Each situation will vary, which means you have to consider whether someone has been negligent in causing whatever injuries you currently have. Incidentally, it is also worth noting that an injury which occurred in the last three years is also potentially liable to warrant compensation if there is enough evidence. This is the time frame you have to work within.

Thankfully such cases are rare, but it is important that anyone who is hurt in these circumstances can get the advice they wish to seek.
