If you use any type of machinery at work, it will be your employer’s responsibility to make sure that you have received adequate training to work it in a safe manner. If you had not been provided with this and were later to go on to be injured by the equipment in question in an accident that was not your fault, there will be a possibility that you might be able to make a claim for 100% no win no fee* personal injury compensation. You can learn how much you might be able to win by using our personal injury claim calculator in North Norfolk.
Workplace machine injuries and our personal injury claim calculator in North Norfolk
Most jobs will involve working a machine of some sorts, even if it’s just a computer. As such, it will be likely that your employer should have given you at least some training in how to use your equipment in safe fashion. Unfortunately though, some firms do not take their responsibility to health and safety as seriously as they should.
If you’ve been injured by a piece of machinery at work and suspect that this came about as a result of you having not received enough training, you might be able to seek a compensation pay-out. Maybe you’re developed a repetitive strain injury working on a factory production line after having not been taught the best way to work. Perhaps you were injured while working on a building site after having not been taught how to use a piece of equipment safely.
In both of these circumstances, there will be a distinct possibility that you might be able to seek some form of 100% no win no fee* compensation pay-out. How much you may be entitled to will be very much dependent on the severity of your injuries.
