If you have been injured whilst operating or working with dangerous machinery in the workplace, contact Forbes Solicitors today and get the compensation you deserve.

Heavy and dangerous machinery is used consistently throughout workplaces across the UK. Places like factories, garages and processing plants make use of large machines but often require constant human interaction to operate correctly. Unfortunately, accidents can happen and people can be injured, often severely and are left with life changing injuries.

Common Dangerous Machinery Accident Claims

Many of the issues the expert accident at work solicitors at Forbes come across, involve employees suffering injury after they have been told to operate dangerous machinery without the appropriate training. In addition many personal injury cases are caused due to unsafe practices - where safety guards have been removed, are missing or have been modified.

A vast majority of injuries involving dangerous machinery usually result in damage to the hands or fingers, but sometimes cases can be more severe with employees losing limbs, breaking bones or being killed due to unsafe conditions or inadequate training.

You may have been asked to operate machinery that you do not have the appropriate training for, or you may have been injured due to a lack of safety equipment available to you. In either case an injury from dangerous machinery can result in trapped, cut or crushed body parts.

If you have been injured at work whilst operating or because of dangerous machinery and you feel it was through no fault of your own - contact the expert personal injury solicitors today at Forbes.
