Industrial Injury Claims Solicitors
You could be entitled to make a compensation claim because your employer owes you a duty of care to ensure that you are safe whilst at work. This duty of care is increased when it comes to industrial work environments because the dangers that these employees are exposed to are much worse than in regular working environments such as offices. This means your employer is responsible for providing you with the appropriate training and the safety equipment to do your job. This includes things like manual handling training, training on using machinery and providing you with things like gloves and goggles where necessary. Your employer is also responsible for keeping an accident book which should log all industrial injuries and for reporting serious injuries to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) who are the independent watchdogs for health and safety in the workplace.
The amount of compensation you can claim for an industrial injury will depend on the seriousness of the injury. Accordingly, you are likely to receive a lot more compensation if your injuries have resulted in fractures, broken bones and injuries that leave you disabled. In addition to compensation for the physical injuries you can also claim for psychological injuries and all other consequential loss. This will include compensation for damage to property, medical bills, travel expenses, loss of income and anything else that can be directly attributed to the accident that resulted in the injury.
If you have suffered an industrial injury in an accident that was not your fault then you should ensure that you make a claim within three years of the date of the accident otherwise you may be barred from doing so without special permission from the courts (which will only be granted in very limited circumstances).
