    Compensation for factory crush injuries


    Crush injuries are far from being an uncommon injury; in fact they are among the most common types of injury we see at Accident Advice Helpline, particularly in a factory setting, which is already quite dangerous. Factory crush injuries can range widely in severity, causing simple bruising and aches and pains to lasting, potentially even permanent damage.

    With this in mind we are dedicated to helping our customers get the compensation they deserve for injuries sustained from an accident that was not their fault. With 15 years’ experience in the industry and our caring nature towards our clients, we are very successful in aiding our clients in receiving a level of compensation that adequately reflects the injuries and suffering sustained.

    Injuries you might sustain

    Some people are very fortunate and receive only minor problems, such as cuts, grazes, bruises and minor bleeding; others however, are not so lucky and instead receive far more severe injuries, including:

    • Fractures, breaks and dislocated bones
    • Internal bleeding
    • Lacerations and non-healing wounds
    • Nerve, tendon and muscle injuries
    • Serious infections
    • Loss of limbs – if injuries are too severe limbs may have to be amputated
    • Fatality – some factory crush injuries can cause death

    Compensation for factory crush injuries

    Whether or not you are eligible to claim compensation very much depends on who was at fault for the accident. If you were injured in an accident somebody else was responsible for, you may be able to claim. Such instances could be caused by:

    • Machinery that is old, not working properly, has not been well maintained or hasn’t been kept fully functional
    • Management not ensuring that everyone using the machinery has been fully trained on the correct way to use it and has not been given the opportunity to read and understand the user manual
    • Workers not behaving appropriately, not abiding by rules and maybe even acting recklessly
    • Poor working conditions, including cramped areas and poor lighting

    The level of compensation you will be eligible to claim depends on your injuries and how severe they are. The more complicated and long-lasting injuries will usually be paid a higher compensation amount.
