What is a Factory & Industrial Injury Claim?

A factory and industrial injury claim is a legal process in which an employee seeks compensation for an injury sustained in a factory or industrial setting. The employee must provide evidence to support their claim and show that their injury was caused by the actions or inactions of their employer.

If you work in a factory or the manufacturing industry, you face serious dangers everyday. Due to the high risk of danger on the job, health and safety regulations must be implemented and followed to avoid accidents in the workplace happening. If these regulations are not followed and you are injured as a result, you are entitled to claim compensation.

If someone is involved in an accident in a factory, the consequences can be severe, sometimes even life changing. It's important to know that if you are injured and you believe it is due to no fault of your own, or it could have been avoided if the correct procedures were put in place you can claim compensation for your injuries.
