Common work accidents: defective machinery

One of the most common types of work based accidents that our solicitor in High Littleton handles on a regular basis is those involving defective machinery.

Technically work machinery or equipment involves the use of any type of machinery or equipment that is needed for you to perform your work based tasks. As such it is an exceptionally broad definition that covers many different items.

An expert solicitor in High Littleton will know that the term can cover:

  • Tools
  • Presses in factories
  • Drills
  • Vehicles (including fork lifts and bicycles)
  • Computer equipment
  • Lifts

It also includes items that can be taken away from the work site to be used in alternative locations, for example, ladders which are provided by employers for employees to use in customer homes.

A piece of equipment is regarded as being defective if, for whatever reason, it is not fit for purpose. This could be because the tool is not right for the job but nevertheless your employer has expected you to use it. Or it may be that it is faulty in some way due to a manufacturing error. A solicitor in High Littleton will still hold your employer accountable if you use a faulty piece of machinery because suitable checks should have been made to ensure that it was fit for purpose.

Alternatively, the equipment may be broken in some way in which again, suitable checks should be made to ensure that all equipment is working properly and repaired appropriately.

The amount of compensation your solicitor in High Littleton is able to claim on your behalf will depend on the severity of your accident and the injuries you have sustained.
