Machinery used in factories often has moving parts such as belts and rollers, and whilst you might not immediately think that this is dangerous, these parts have the potential to cause factory worker crush injuries, if the machinery is not used correctly. It’s important that employers train staff in how to operate machinery properly, and make them aware of the risks that this type of equipment can pose to health and safety.
Machinery should be regularly checked and well-maintained, and normally needs to be turned off before maintenance or repairs are carried out. There should be procedures in place to protect employees.
If you’ve suffered factory worker crush injuries, you may have been lucky enough to escape with broken bones, or you may have lost a limb or been left permanently disabled. Working in a manual job, this could mean you’re unable to return to work.
Whatever your situation, Accident Advice Helpline can offer advice and answer any questions you have about making a claim for personal injury compensation, and there’s no obligation to proceed with a claim.
Crush injuries caused by factory machinery have the potential to affect the rest of your life – your well-being and earning potential. If you have lost a limb due to a crush injury, you might find you’re unable to return to work, making it hard to pay your household bills or provide for your family.
Life-changing injuries could leave you physically disabled and in need of 24/7 care; you might also need to make modifications to your home. Ongoing care and treatment will cost money, and where is that money coming from? Making a claim with Accident Advice Helpline means you could receive a settlement which could cover medical expenses, household bills and more.
