Speak to our industrial accident solicitors if you have been injured in the workplace! Industrial accident claims take a huge variety of forms, from industrial diseases such as asbestos-related illnesses or hand-arm vibration syndrome, to accidents at work leading to a wide range of personal injuries. These could include amputations, broken bones, or even fatal accidents.
Employers have a duty of care towards their workforce – everyone has the right to return home safe and healthy after a day at work. When employers fail in this regard and people sustain personal injuries as a result of this negligence, they can then make an industrial accident claim.
Some of the ways employers can prevent industrial accident compensation cases is by conducting risk assessments, maintaining a safe workplace, providing personal protective equipment and adhering to health and safety regulations. While personal injury solicitors might refer to workplace injuries as ‘accidents’, in reality they are almost always preventable and foreseeable.
Some of the failings that regularly lead to industrial accident claims include:
– Failure to maintain good housekeeping, leading to slip or trip injuries
– Accidents caused by machinery, including amputations, vibration diseases and industrial deafness
– Diseases caused by exposure to hazardous substances, including asbestosis and blood-born viruses
– Conditions caused by poor training, such as manual handling claims
If you have been in an industrial accident that was not your fault, you have the right to make an industrial accident claim against your employer. Speak to our industrial accident solicitors to find out what we could do for you.
Industrial Accident Compensation
Industrial accident compensation values can be sizable. Claimants don’t just receive compensation for their pain and suffering, but also for any additional losses they faced as a result of the incident. This includes things like lost wages – frequently an issue in industrial accident claims – as well as travel costs and medical bills.
While you might be partially responsible for the accident or for the extent of your injuries, if your employer holds some responsibility, you can still claim for this contributory negligence.
You do not have to worry about putting your job at risk if you make an industrial accident claim – it is against the law for employers to fire staff for filing a claim. Similarly, your employer will almost certainly have employers’ liability insurance, so claiming compensation won’t necessarily cause too much damage to the business.
