Do you work with dangerous machinery and equipment on a daily basis in a factory? Have you ever stopped to think about the risk of injury, to yourself and others? Whilst it’s important that factory workers take some responsibility for their own health and safety, your employer also has responsibilities.
Factory health and safety failures could lead to serious, life-changing injuries, even fatalities, so it’s vital that your employer takes health and safety seriously, to reduce the risk of accidents occurring.
What do we mean by factory health and safety failures? Well, the following could all be classed as failings:
- Your employer doesn’t regularly inspect machinery and equipment
- Faulty machinery isn’t fixed for months, or even years
- Employees don’t receive proper training when working with new equipment
- The working environment is poorly lit, dirty or unsafe
- There are no rules or procedures in place for working with dangerous equipment or machinery
If your employer doesn’t prioritise health and safety and you’re injured as a result, why not find out if you could claim personal injury compensation?
Experienced and trustworthy
Your personal injury claims experience will depend on the law firm you choose to handle your claim. Accident Advice Helpline has 15 years’ experience in the industry and we’ve already helped hundreds of factory workers claim compensation after an accident at work has left them injured.
If your employer has been negligent and you have been injured, this could impact your future. Perhaps you’ve been seriously injured and are unable to return to work, affecting your family financially, or have been left permanently disabled after a factory accident.
We’ll do our best to get you the compensation you deserve and we won’t charge a penny in upfront legal fees – our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
Time to make the first move
Your personal injury compensation isn’t going to claim itself, so there is little point sitting around and wondering whether you are eligible to make a claim. At any rate, there is a three-year time limit in place for personal injury claims, so losing sleep whilst you wonder whether to make a claim could also result in you losing out if you miss the deadline.
We recommend calling Accident Advice Helpline on: 0800 689 0500, for confidential advice and answers to any questions you have about the claims process. Once you’re informed, you’ll be able to decide what to do next.
