Many people work with machinery as part of their job. And in the majority of cases the machinery is properly maintained and fit for purpose. However, on occasions, your employer may be negligent in their duties towards you, to ensure you are safe whilst using the machinery.
They may not book in a service for the machinery on time, they may know that it is defective but still ask you to operate it or they may not show you how to work it safely. Any of these issues could contribute to you being involved in a machinery accident at work.
As a result of your employer’s negligence and after suffering an injury, you will likely be in pain or discomfort and you may have to reduce your working hours to recover or you may not be able to work at all. You may also have to take time away from your work to attend medical appointments for treatment related to your accident.
What may I be entitled to if I have been involved in a Machinery Accident at Work?
The dedicated team of solicitors at T G Baynes will ensure you get the compensation you are entitled to. It is understandable that whilst no amount of money will relieve the pain of the injuries you received from being involved in a machinery accident due to negligence, any settlement you receive is able to go towards paying any private medical bills you may have incurred, expenses you’ve gathered from going to and from hospital appointments as a result of the accident, as well as any loss of earnings, both in the past and in the future.
Due to the unique nature of a claim resulting from an accident involving machinery at work, it is hard to give an exact figure of what you may be entitled to, but your T G Baynes solicitor will be able to give you further information as your claim progresses.
