    The essential guide to factory site claims

    As a worker in a factory, you are more vulnerable to accidents at work and suffering job-related injuries than in many other industries.

    Given the scale of some of the projects undertaken and the complexity of much of the machinery used, it’s of little surprise that accidents in factories can have expensive and serious consequences with regards to factory site claims.

    The Health and Safety Executive reports that, of all injuries at work recorded over the course of a year, factory accidents account for 16%. This despite only containing 10% of Britain’s workforce.

    Compensation for factory site claims

    It’s clear then, that work accidents in factories are a very real threat and it’s therefore important you know exactly what to do in the aftermath.

    Here’s a brief guide to getting the work accident compensation you deserve.

    A key part of the work injury claims process is establishing who was at fault. If your accident was due to the negligence of others, then you have a strong chance of success. Examples would include:
