If you’ve been involved in an accident at work that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to make a machinist accident claim in order to pay for medical bills or to help support you and your family while you are unable to work. At Accident Advice Helpline, we are experienced in dealing with machinist accident claims and can provide you with the support and information you need to file your claim and win the compensation you deserve.
How do I know if I should be making a machinist accident claim?
Machinists tend to have a relatively dangerous job because they are working with powerful machinery on a daily basis. They must be highly trained and skilled in order to prevent the risk of injury to themselves. However, a lot of responsibility lies with their employer to provide a safe working environment to keep accidents at bay.
Having machinery regularly serviced, ensuring machinery is equipped with appropriate safety guards and providing mouth, eye and ear protection are just a few of the ways in which an employer should be protecting their machinists. If you have suffered an accident and feel that your employer was to blame for not adhering to health and safety regulations, you could be entitled to compensation. Equally, if another member of staff was to blame in any way for your accident, you could also be entitled to a pay out.
What would a compensation claim do to help me?
- Pay for expensive medical bills should you need to go private for any specialist treatments.
- Cover the expense of prescriptions.
- Cover travel expenses should it be necessary for you to travel to the hospital regularly.
- Pay for ongoing care during your recovery.
- Provide financial support for both you and your family during the time you are unable to work due to your injury.
- Cover the cost of private counselling should your doctor prescribe it.
- Provide you with a degree of closure after the accident.
