    Compensation for a deadly industrial accident


    Compensation for a deadly industrial accident

    If someone you love has been killed in a deadly industrial accident, the impact can be devastating, both emotionally and financially, if you live together or have a family. Industrial accidents can and do have the potential to happen anywhere, at any time, but employers can reduce the risk of accidents occurring by ensuring that they do the following:

    • Ensure that staff are properly trained and aware of health and safety risks
    • Provide well-maintained equipment that is fit for purpose
    • Provide PPE to employees if required
    • Allow employees ample rest breaks, particularly if working night shifts or extended shifts
    • Make sure that machinery is appropriately guarded

    If your family member has been killed in a deadly industrial accident, they may have died at the scene, or they may have been treated in hospital and died later. Either way, it’s a traumatic experience and you could be left suffering financially if your husband, wife or partner has been killed. Have you considered making a claim for compensation? If a negligent employer is to blame for their industrial accident, you have a good chance of successfully being awarded the compensation you deserve. Nothing will bring your family member back, of course, but a settlement could help to ease any financial burden associated with their death or pay for funeral costs.

    What is an industrial accident?

    Industrial accidents apply to any accident which occurs in industry – for example at a garment factory, in a chemical warehouse or perhaps at a tyre fitters, and could include:

    • Building collapse
    • Explosion
    • Fire
    • Chemical leak
    • Faulty machinery
    • Industrial disease (such as industrial deafness)
