If you have recently been involved in a factory accident, our team of specialist personal injury solicitors in Leeds & Yorkshire can assist you on a no-win-no-fee basis to claim the compensation you deserve.

Factory accidents can be a common occurrence where hazardous operations, materials and environments exist and health and safety management has been negligent. Along with construction accidents, defective equipment accidents and warehouse accidents, injuries sustained in an industrial factory setting are amongst the most frequently occurring accidents at work seen in the UK. In such circumstances, you are entitled to seek compensation for injury, loss of earnings, stress and to cover rehabilitation costs, if it can be proven that your employer was at fault.

How do factory accidents occur?

The hazards inherent in factory environments should be thoroughly risk-assessed by an employer and suitable health and safety controls implemented and monitored. Due to the nature of these operations, such hazards present much more risk to an employee than most other working environments.

Such risks include:

  • Injuries sustained in operating machinery
  • Being struck by equipment
  • Being struck by moving transport, such as a fork truck
  • Falling from a height
  • Electrical injury
  • Slips or trips
  • Injuries from or exposure to hazardous materials, such as chemicals or infected water treatment systems

As well as the regular operations undertaken in a factory, there are often also maintenance tasks taking place, so injuries can also be sustained from grinding and cutting, hammering, welding or brazing, or using any kind of power tool.
