Accidents at work with machinery or equipment

Employers are legally obliged to provide safe equipment, machinery and plant along with adequately trained co-workers. If anyone is using a machine they should be trained and qualified to do so.

An employer must ensure staff are trained to use any machinery and that the equipment itself is kept to a high standard of repair and maintenance.

If you have been injured as a result of using faulty machinery or equipment, you may be able to claim personal injury damages. Make a claim today by calling the Online Legal Advice accident helpline.

We can help you claim compensation in these circumstances and would be happy to speak with you to outline what is involved in making a claim. You will be entitled to recover damages including but not limited to:

  • Damages for pain and suffering.
  • Lost earnings and overtime, bonuses.
  • Treatment costs (physiotherapy) and medication expenses.
