Working in a factory presents a number of dangers, as employees often come into contact with chemicals, flame, hazardous materials, machinery, sharp tools and much more on a daily basis.
If you work in a factory, it’s important to be provided with the correct safety training along with proper safety equipment to make sure you are not at risk of injuries. Your employer is responsible for providing all of this, along with making sure the premises is safe to prevent accidents.
While this is the case, employees are still injured at work in factories every year. The nature of these accidents can range, but it is very common that they result in serious injuries. Slips and trips, falls from heights, accidents involving chemicals or machinery can lead to a number of injuries.

Who Can Make a Claim?
You can make a claim under UK law, provided:
- Your accident took place within the past three years

To better the chances of a successful settlement, you should be able to provide proof of your innocence to your solicitor, be it in the form of a workplace accident report, images, CCTV footage or witness statements. Providing your workplace injury lawyer with a formal diagnosis along with any medical records will also help them build a strong case.
