No one should go to work wondering if their equipment will be working properly - no matter what the job is. We should be able to expect that any equipment we need to do our job properly is fully working, safe and entirely suitable for the job at hand.
In some cases, this is not always possible. This can leave you frustrated because you are not able to do your job to the best of your ability, but can be life threatening if something is defective, damaged or faulty.
You may have been working on a building site and have been asked to use power tools that were unsafe or may have been asked to use equipment that frequently malfunctions and were injured as a result. In either case, if this is due to neglect on your employers part, you may be able to make a compensation claim for your injuries.
If you have been injured by work equipment that you believe was faulty or defective, get in touch with the expert solicitors at Forbes.
Sustaining a workplace injury due to faulty equipment can have devastating consequences, leaving you unable to work or worse.
We will fight for the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries at all times to ensure you have access to any private medical treatment to aid you in your recovery and that any lost income or finances are recovered. Alternatively, in the unfortunate event that your loved one has died in an accident at work we will seek to secure compensation on your behalf to ensure you and your family is provided for financially.
A compensation claim does so much more than provide sufferers with the compensation they deserve, it also helps to make sure accidents through unsafe or faulty workplace equipment don't happen again.

I have found all the staff and the solicitors that I have seen have been very kind, thoughtful and very helpful. I cannot praise them enough and I would not go to anyone else at all.
