Factory Accident Claims

Factory accidents are amongst the most common workplace accidents and here at YouClaim we regularly deal with claims for accidents in factories ranging from slips and trips to serious chemical burns.

Accidents can happen in any kind of factory environment and while an employer cannot foresee every potential danger they must take reasonable steps to identify risks and put measures in place to avoid them.

If you’ve been injured while working in a factory and the negligence of your employer was to blame then YouClaim’s expert solicitors can make a factory accident claim on your behalf.

Your Employer’s Responsibilities

Your employer should always provide you with the right footwear and clothing for your work, should provide relevant training and should also make sure there are provisions in place to keep factory floors debris free eg. a dedicated cleaning team. If they fail to create a safe working environment and you are injured as a result, you can claim compensation.

Common Risks in Factories

Risks in a factory that can lead to an accident include:

  • Equipment failure
  • Improper training or lack of training, particularly when using heavy machinery
  • Uneven flooring
  • Spilt liquids
  • Debris
  • Loose wires
  • Chemicals that may cause burns
  • Unsafe electrical equipment
  • Improperly barriered higher levels
