It’s easy to think that most people head to work in offices each day, isn’t it? While this is true for many, there are plenty more people who go into factories instead and work on the factory floor. This involves a very different type of work – work that can be challenging and yet rewarding at the same time.
No two factories are ever quite the same. However, they do all have some things in common – namely, the requirement to ensure that every employee can work in safe surroundings. This becomes ever more important when complex equipment is used that could potentially be dangerous in some circumstances. The lawyers working on behalf of Accident Advice Helpline have handled cases in which people have experienced factory explosion injuries because an accident has occurred where they work.
The danger of an explosion
Needless to say, any explosion can potentially be fatal if someone is in the immediate vicinity at the time. Thankfully, very few situations like this occur today, mainly because good health and safety rules and regulations are followed in every workplace across the country. When something does go wrong, it is often found that some aspect of safety was neglected, thus putting lives at risk in the process.
Accident Advice Helpline understand the potential fallout that can occur in these situations. There are circumstances in which people are injured by shrapnel from explosions or receive even more serious injuries as a result of being in the vicinity of such an explosion.
Recovering from injuries
Thankfully, very few people have ever been killed as a result of factory explosion injuries. However, even one fatality is one too many for those involved, and for their families and friends. Even if a person survives, it may take some time to recover from their injuries. It may also take time to return to work, and in some cases this may not be possible at all.
As you can see, this type of experience can completely change a person’s life. If your life has been changed like this, make sure you call Accident Advice Helpline now. There could be a reasonable chance that you could claim compensation through our no win no fee* claims process. When you call 0800 689 0500, you can speak with our friendly team and they can help to determine where you stand and whether compensation might actually be a possibility for you in the future.
