If you have suffered an injury caused by defective equipment in your place of work, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Defective equipment is a common cause for many workplace injuries, so if this has happened to you and you feel like this wasn’t your fault and your employer could be held liable, Ison Harrison can help you secure suitable compensation.

How do defective equipment accidents occur?

Accidents can happen in any industry sector, and most commonly where your work involves a number of hazards. For this reason construction accidents, factory accidents and warehouse accidents are common. However, an injury can occur in any environment where equipment has not been set-up correctly or is faulty or poorly maintained.

Injuries resulting from defective equipment can include:

  • Being struck by moving machinery
  • Being struck by a loose object
  • Trapped fingers, hands or arms
  • Foreign object in the eye
  • Exposure to or inhalation of harmful substances
  • Exposure to excessive light or noise levels leading to sight or hearing damage

How a defective equipment injury claim is processed

Your defective equipment injury could be the result of negligence on the part of your employer if it can be found that inspection procedures, risk assessments or poor training failed to identify that the equipment was defective. Ison Harrison can help to establish the key facts behind the accident occurring during a free initial consultation, and work out if that led from employer negligence. If it is found that you have grounds to make a claim we can accept your case on a ‘no win no fee basis’.

To establish this, our experienced personal injury solicitors will talk with you to find evidence that your employer was negligent in their safety management. This could lead to you receiving a financial compensation that you deserve, but also to implementing corrective actions at your workplace to ensure there isn’t a repeat of this accident. If a claim for defective equipment injury proceeds, we will support you through the process and represent you in any discussions with your employer.
