If you work in the manufacturing and production engineering industry then you may require expert miller injury advice if you have been involved in a serious accident. Millers are exposed to many risks and hazards during their working day due to the heavy equipment they use and the confined spaces they work in. If your employer did not prioritise health and safety then you could be eligible to make a no win, no fee* claim to recover the costs if you have been hit by costly medical bills and lost income since the accident.
Millers use a variety of machine tools to produce precision-engineered products including grinding, milling and drilling machines, shapers and planers and turning machines. It is the duty of your employer to ensure that these machines are safe to use and that every worker has received appropriate training to use them. You could make a claim with us if an apprentice had not been trained properly and their lack of health and safety knowledge resulted in you being struck by a piece of material causing lacerations and other serious injuries. Your employer must meet a standard of care; if they fail to do so then they may be liable.
Your employer may also be at fault if you were forced to work in an environment that was not well lit or if you were not provided with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as ear protectors, overalls and protective footwear to minimise the risks of using lathes and other dangerous equipment. Even if they never intended to cause the accident, it should not be up to you to deal with the consequences of a serious injury. A personal injury claim will address the balance of justice and ensure that your employer is made to pay for their mistake.
If you have been injured at work then you should notify your employer immediately. You should then begin collecting evidence, if you are feeling well enough to do so. Witness details, photographs and relevant details about how and why the accident happened will help our solicitors to support your case. If you are claiming for special damages and other expenses, then we will also need financial and medical documents showing how it has affected your life.
Accident Advice Helpline can work for you to get the money that is rightfully owed to you. Established in 2000, we have become a market leader over the years.
