Injuries Caused By Dangerous Machinery

Have you been injured by using a machine at work? If so, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Machinery is used in lots of workplaces and most types are dangerous. Your employer must carry out a risk assessment on every piece of equipment you use and take all practical steps to reduce the risk to you. Machines should be guarded and well maintained, while you, and your workmates, should be trained how to use it safely. Wearing the right type of clothing is also important and should be part of your employer's regime as clothing can become trapped or caught up in moving parts of factory equipment. There are lots of health & safety regulations relating to work place machinery which employers should comply with. Too many employers ignore them.

Sadly, many people suffer injuries at work due to dangerous machinery. Nip, crush or amputation injuries to fingers or hands are the most common, but lots of other injuries can happen. These can be very serious and may need surgery. They usually come with a long period off work and sometimes your employer may refuse to pay you wages while you're off (even though the accident was their fault!).
