Claim compensation for being struck by machinery at work

work machinary equipment

If you suffer personal injury as an employee who is struck by machinery at work, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Workplace regulations are strenuous; especially when it comes to work and plant equipment. The dangers of moving machinery are obvious, and even more so in the case of large machinery that could impact, crush, cut, or otherwise injure employees.

If you’re inured during the course of your employment, and the injury has been caused by being struck by machinery, you may be entitled to make a workplace compensation claim.

When can you claim for being struck by machinery at work?

If you have suffered injury and loss as a result of being struck by machinery at work, you may be entitled to compensation where negligence has occurred.

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations ensure that there ought to be no circumstances where an employee can be injured by equipment. But, despite the legislation we have in place, accidents can still occur.

More often than not, it’s because the law hasn’t been followed.

Examples where you may be entitled to compensation can include:

  • Injuries when conducting maintenance on machinery where isolation is not possible or has not taken place;
  • Injuries caused because stopping or isolation of moving machinery cannot be achieved when something happens;
  • Injuries caused by the negligence of a colleague operating machinery.

If the equipment is faulty or unsafe, you may be able to claim. If a colleague is responsible for the accident, your employer can still be vicariously liable for their colleague’s actions. This means you can still be entitled to make a successful claim.

Risk assessments and appropriate methods for stopping and isolating machinery are an absolute priority. Without such things, people can be easily hurt, and victims can be entitled to compensation.

Serious injury compensation claims

When it comes to personal injury matters, our focus as a firm is on the more serious and catastrophic injury cases. When it comes to workers injured by being struck by machinery at work, serious injuries can be common; such as from long-term physical damage from impacts, crushing or cutting, as typical examples.

There’s a good reason as to why the law is clear in terms of an employer’s responsibility when it comes to work equipment. There’s also a good reason as to why the HSE can fine companies millions of pounds where employees are seriously injured or killed.

Claim compensation with confidence

If you’ve been struck by machinery at work and you want to make a claim for personal injury compensation, you can do so confidently and safely with us.

Your employer should have specialist insurance that specifically covers them for claims. It’s there to be used, and you’re protected in terms of your employment when it comes to making a claim.

To make sure you can claim without the worry of costs, we offer No Win, No Fee representation.
