Factory Accidents

If you have been injured in an accident whilst working in a factory that was not your fault, you may be able to make a claim.

Working in a factory can be dangerous. Our specialist lawyers have dealt with accidents in factories involving falling objects, crushing injuries, defective machinery or equipment, exposure to dangerous substances, forklift truck accidents, manual handling injuries and slips, trips and falls.

Your employer is under a legal duty to ensure that all safeguards are in place and that the working environment is a safe place to work. Your employers should ensure that personal protective equipment is provided together with health and safety training, regular inspections of structures and equipment and proper training is given to employees to use equipment.

Our specialist lawyers have recovered millions of pounds in compensation for workers injured in factories.

One example of a case that we have won was for a Factory worker who was injured as a result of lifting an unsafe load that was in excess of the recommended weight limits for lifting. He was not given proper training and injured his back. This resulted in a prolonged period off work. Through our network of rehabilitation providers, he was able to get back to work quicker than anticipated. He recovered damages of over £30,000.00 to include loss of earnings, treatment costs and his injuries.
