Dangerous equipment

If you have been injured because of dangerous machinery or work equipment or a loved one was involved in a serious or fatal accident due to an accident at work, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim.

Hazards involving machinery in the working environment are unfortunately quite common, with typical examples including:

  • Faulty equipment
  • Dangerous vehicles
  • Entrapment
  • Missing or defective safety guards
  • Lathe injuries
  • Conveyor belt accidents
  • Log splitter injuries
  • Being ejected from machinery

Accidents involving machinery can often be severe and can have a permanent effect on an individuals ability to work. The Health and Safety Executive reported that 8% of fatal accidents and 4% of other injuries in 2019/20 involved contact with machinery.
