    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Were you injured by faulty machinery at work?


    If you work in an environment with machinery, such as in a warehouse or factory, or on a construction site, then you could be injured by faulty machinery at work. It isn’t always immediately clear who is at fault – if the machinery has developed a manufacturing or design defect, it could be the manufacturer who is to blame. But if your employer has failed to maintain machinery to a safe standard, they could be held liable for your injuries. Either way, you could make a personal injury claim, whatever injuries you’ve sustained, provided it has been three years or less since your accident.

    How have you been injured?

    If you’ve been injured by faulty machinery at work, you could have suffered injuries ranging from minor to serious. For example, you might have suffered crush injuries and fractures after trapping your hand in faulty heavy machinery whilst working in a factory. Or perhaps you have sustained serious eye or facial injuries from flying debris whilst working with machinery on a building site? Whatever has happened, your injuries don’t need to be life-changing in order to make a claim.

    The machinery manufacturer could be held liable if you’ve suffered any kind of injury which requires medical attention – so you could make a 100% no win, no fee* personal injury claim with Accident Advice Helpline. If you have suffered a life-changing or life-threatening injury, you can expect to receive a more substantial personal injury settlement than somebody who has perhaps suffered more minor injuries.

    Claiming compensation after a workplace accident

    It might be that your accident wasn’t caused by a manufacturing defect – perhaps you have been injured by faulty machinery at work after your employer failed to maintain machinery to a safe standard. IF this is the case, they could be held liable for your accident, and ordered to pay you personal injury compensation. But don’t waste time wondering who’s at fault for your injuries; call Accident Advice Helpline today on 0800 689 0500 and find out if you could make a claim. There’s absolutely no obligation to proceed with a claim when you call us; you can get confidential advice from our personal injury advisors or answers to any questions you have about the claims process.

    Whether you have suffered minor facial lacerations or a serious eye injury, we’re here to make sure you get the compensation you deserve – we have been helping people just like you claim compensation for machinery accidents at work since 2000.
