    How to claim textile factory injury compensation


    Textile factories in the UK employ workers who are responsible for making fabric and yarn for clothing or other items. The job can involve long hours, long periods of standing, repetitive actions and being exposed to airborne fibres and loud noises. Injured workers may be eligible to claim textile factory injury compensation, whether they have sustained a minor injury at work or have been left with an industrial illness. If your employer has been negligent and you’ve been injured as a result, Accident Advice Helpline has the expertise to help you claim textile factory injury compensation.

    Common textile factory worker injuries

    In case you’re wondering what sort of injuries could be sustained by textile workers, here are a few examples:

    • Industrial deafness from exposure to high decibel noise
    • Respiratory illness or conditions from odours and airborne fibres
    • Mesothelioma after exposure to asbestos
    • Prolonged standing leading to knee, neck, back and shoulder problems
    • Over-exertion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Crushing/tearing injuries from hands, fingers or arms being stuck in machinery, sometimes leading to amputations
    • Slip, trip or fall injuries
    • Hit by a forklift or pallet mover
    • Equipment or material falling from height causing head or back injuries
      Injured in a factor fire or explosion

    Luckily, textile factories today are much safer places than they were in the past, partly due to technological advances, but also because a range of personal protective equipment (PPE) is available. If you’re working on the factory floor, your employer should provide you with a protective mask, clothing and ear plugs or hearing protection, to ensure your job isn’t putting you at risk. If you’ve been exposed to risk at work and have not been provided with PPE, you could make a claim for compensation with Accident Advice Helpline, on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.

    Life-changing injuries

    Some injuries sustained at work have the potential to be life-changing, such as developing mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos, or suffering hearing loss after exposure to loud noise in the factory. If you’ve suffered a life-changing injury, make a claim for personal injury compensation and you’ll find that Accident Advice Helpline will carefully consider the impact your injuries have had on your quality of life, as well as taking into account loss of earnings. Call us today on 0800 689 0500 to find out if you have a viable claim and get confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert personal injury advisors.
