Losing a finger in a tuna packing accident or suffering burns whilst operating an industrial oven at work isn’t okay. True, accidents can and do happen, but much of the time, there are things which could have been done, either by your employer or co-workers, to prevent an accident from occurring.
Injured food factory workers could find themselves out of a job, suffering from loss of earnings whilst they recover from their injuries, or even unable to return to work if they’ve suffered life-changing injuries. Luckily, there is some good news for injured food factory workers.
Personal injury compensation could be awarded which will compensate you for your pain and suffering, as well as any loss of earnings. Accident Advice Helpline has been helping factory workers claim compensation for accidents at work since 2000, so why not find out how we can help you?
Worried about losing your job if you make a claim for compensation? Don’t be. Employers have liability insurance in place in the event of a claim, and you’re entitled to claim personal injury compensation if your employer is responsible for your accident. Chances are, you may not want to return to your job anyway, if your employer has been negligent and you’ve been injured as a result.
Don’t make a claim for personal injury compensation assuming you’ll be awarded millions of pounds – in reality, this only happens to a very small percentage of claimants. When you claim with us, our personal injury lawyers will use their 15 years’ experience in the industry to work out your settlement, taking into account the severity of your injuries, how your life has been affected and any loss of earnings or financial impact your accident has had on your life.
The more serious your injuries, the larger the settlement you could receive, but for an idea of how much you could be entitled to, take the 30-second test on our website right now. Because our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, you don’t even need to worry about how you’ll afford to pay those legal fees.
Should you claim?
Claiming personal injury compensation isn’t the right decision for everyone, but the only way to find out if you’re eligible and if it’s the right thing to do is to arm yourself with the facts.
So call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 today and get confidential advice. Our expert personal injury advisors can answer your questions, and there’s no obligation to proceed with a claim.
