Any work place can be susceptible to accidents that can cause injury to its workers, however, factories can be particularly dangerous places as they contain heavy machinery and other potential hazards. As a result employees could receive any number of injuries ranging from minor incidents resulting in a cut or fracture to serious incidents resulting in injury to one of the senses or the loss of a limb.

Employer Duty of Care

All employers have a duty of care towards their employees but employers in factories have to take additional precautions when it comes to health and safety and this includes providing employees with the appropriate training and providing them with safety equipment such as goggles and helmets. If you have suffered an injury from an accident in a factory as a result of your employer’s negligence then you should speak with a personal injury claims Bristol solicitor** who will be aware of the health and safety regulations and will be to help you make a claim for compensation.

Make a Claim for a Factory Injury

The amount of compensation you will be awarded will depend on the seriousness of the injury and the degree of negligence with reference to government guidelines and the amount of compensation that has been awarded in previously cases. In addition to compensation for pain and suffering you can also make a claim for any consequential loss. This is likely to include medical bills, care costs, alternations to the home and loss of income.

Any compensation will be paid out by your employer’s liability insurance policy (which they are legally required to have in place) and you should not fear making a claim as there can be no repercussions from your employer as this could result in you being able to bring a further claim in an employment tribunal.

Any claim must be made within three years of the date of the accident and therefore it is important that you seek advice from a personal injury claims Bristol solicitor** as soon as possible following the accident. Any claim brought outside of this time may be statute barred under the Limitation Act 1980 which means that the courts will not allow the claim to proceed.
