Factory & Warehouse Accident Claims: How to Make a Compensation Claim
If you have been injured in a factory or warehouse accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Primus Solicitors are medical negligence experts and specialist medical negligence solicitors who can help you make a claim. In this article, we’ll provide you with all the information you need to know about making a compensation claim for a factory or warehouse accident.
Employers are legally required to ensure the safety of their employees by providing a safe working environment. Factories and warehouses are particularly prone to accidents and hazards, and employers must carry out regular inspections and risk assessments to reduce the risk of workplace accidents. If your employer has not taken appropriate safety measures, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
- Injuries caused by faulty or defective equipment or machinery.
- Poor and inadequate training
- Slip, trips, and falls
- Insufficient or inadequate personal protective equipment (PPE)
At Primus Solicitors, we handle most of our personal injury compensation cases on a No Win No Fee basis. This means that if you do not win your claim, you will not have to pay any legal costs. We are clinical negligence solicitors and can assist with claims for delayed diagnosis compensation, care home negligence, and cosmetic surgery compensation claims.
Before we can take on your claim, we need to establish that your employer owed you a duty of care and that they were negligent, leading to your injuries. The claimant can be anyone who has been injured in a factory or warehouse due to their employer’s negligence.
To support your claim, it is advisable to gather evidence such as CCTV footage or pictures of the accident scene. Ask colleagues to provide witness statements and collect information in a report about your workplace. Employers are legally required to record and report accidents in the workplace, so provide us with a copy of this information as it will be useful in building your case. You should also visit a medical professional for a diagnosis of your injuries, as the medical report will be essential in obtaining compensation for your condition.
- General damages compensate for the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of the accident, as well as any loss of amenities.
- Special damages, which compensate for any financial losses such as loss of earnings, medical expenses, and travel expenses.
Most people have three years to make a claim for a factory or warehouse accident, but it depends on the individual circumstances of each case and whether the employer admits responsibility. If the employer does not admit fault, your claim may take longer, as negotiation and potentially court proceedings may be necessary. Therefore, it is important to begin the process as soon as possible if you have been injured in a factory or warehouse accident.
