    "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 work equipment?


    When you’re at work, your personal safety is probably one of the last things on your mind – you’re focused on your job and getting your work done. Whatever type of equipment you use in your job, you assume it will be safe to use. But if your employer has been negligent and failed to check that equipment is in good working order, you could make a personal injury claim if you’ve been injured by faulty work equipment. Whether you work on a construction site, in a warehouse or even in an office, if you’ve been injured and somebody else is to blame, you could have a viable personal injury claim.

    What type of injuries could faulty work equipment cause?

    If you’ve been injured by faulty work equipment, the type of injuries sustained will of course depend on the type of equipment you’re using. Since 2000, Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of workers claim compensation for accidents involving work equipment – here are just a few examples of the types of claims we have handled:

    • Electric shock from faulty power tools or office equipment
    • Lacerations from broken parts
    • Eye injuries or facial injuries from flying parts, for example factory machinery or tools on a building site
    • Finger injuries from broken blades on power tools or faulty kitchen equipment (such as a blender)
    • Burns or scalds from faulty kitchen appliances in a commercial kitchen

    If you’ve been injured, at work, it could be that your employer is liable for your accident, and they could be ordered to pay you personal injury compensation.

    Will you lose your job?

    There’s no need to worry about losing your job if you make a personal injury claim. If you’ve been injured by faulty work equipment, you’re entitled to compensation, and you won’t lose your job. Your employer will have liability insurance in place in the event an employee makes a claim, and you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline today to find out if you could make a 100% no win, no fee claim. It’s free to call us on 0800 689 0500 and see if you have a viable claim, or get confidential, no-obligation advice from our team of personal injury advisors.

    Whether you have suffered a life-changing injury or a minor injury, you could find you’re eligible to make a claim against your employer. So don’t suffer in silence if their negligence has left you injured; get in touch with us today.
