Common hazards in the automotive industry

Jobs in the automotive industry could include working at a car dealership, being employed as a mechanic, working for a valet service or even being employed in the manufacture of motor vehicles. As you can imagine, there are some common hazards in the automotive industry that are responsible for the majority of accidents. But just because you’ve been injured by something common doesn’t mean you can’t make a personal injury claim. If somebody else is at fault for your injuries, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim the compensation you deserve, within three years of your accident.

How did your accident happen?

Since we started helping people claim compensation back in 2000, we have handled claims relating to injuries caused by a variety of common hazards in the automotive industry. Here are just a few of the most common we’ve come across:

  • Faulty equipment in a garage causing injuries to mechanics – for example a car crushing somebody working on it
  • Being hit by a reversing vehicle in a dealership or garage
  • Fault tools in a garage causing lacerations and other injuries
  • Electrical faults in vehicles causing electric shock
  • Heavy machinery in factories causing crush injuries

If you have been injured working in the automotive industry, you might feel there’s not a lot you can do. However if your accident has been caused by somebody else’s negligence – for example if you were injured by faulty equipment your employer failed to maintain properly – then you could have a viable claim for compensation.

Worrying about expensive legal fees puts many people off making a personal injury claim.
