You may not think that working in a factory is dangerous, provided you pay due care and attention to your personal safety. However, if your employer does not put in place safety procedures to protect staff, or does not meet their responsibilities when it comes to safety, there is the potential for accidents to occur and you could be injured.
Wooden pallet injuries can be caused by a variety of factors. If you’ve sustained wooden pallet injuries, you may be wondering who is to blame – has your employer been negligent? The types of injuries you could sustain in an accident involving a wooden pallet include the following:
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Crush injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Injuries caused by object such as a pallet falling from height
Wooden pallet injuries can vary in their severity, but whether you have been severely injured or have been lucky enough to escape with minor injuries, you could be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation, if it can be proven that your employer has been negligent.
Who is responsible for your accident?
Here are just a few examples of what could constitute employer negligence:
- Failure to fix faulty machinery
- Failing to maintain machinery and equipment
- Not carrying out risk assessments
- Failing to maintain a safe working environment
- Not allowing employees adequate breaks
- Failing to train staff properly
- Failing to make staff aware of hazards
Claiming compensation doesn’t have to be difficult. Your employer will have liability insurance to protect them in the event of a claim by an employee, so there’s no need to feel guilty. Just contact a personal injury lawyer within three years of your accident, to find out if you could claim.
