If your employer provides you with defective equipment that causes you an injury, you may be entitled to compensation.
Croftons Solicitors can help you make a claim, assessing all aspects of the case to determine where the fault lies.
Equipment Injury Claims
Equipment that is not fit for purpose can result in all kinds of accidents at work, such as falling from a ladder or being hit by falling object stored on faulty shelving.
Defective electrical devices can also cause shocks and burns if they are incorrectly maintained.
Croftons Solicitors have handled claims involving defective equipment from a wide range of industries and workplaces, from offices to factories and construction sites.
Your employer has the responsibility to keep you safe at work, and can often be held to account if you suffer an injury.
All electrical equipment should be officially checked on at least a yearly basis, and full training on its safe usage should be provided to all staff.
Any equipment discovered to be defective should be removed immediately, with employees informed as soon as possible that it should not be used.
Only accidents within the last three years can be taken forward, so if you are injured at work by a defective product and wish to make a claim it is essential to do so promptly.
