Industrial Accident and Injury Claims



What is an Industrial Accident Injury?

An industrial accident injury includes any type of injury that occurs in an industrial setting, such as a factory or construction site. This can range from a minor injury, such as a cut or bruise, to a more serious injury, such as a broken bone or head injury.

What is an Industrial Accident Injury Claim?

An industrial accident injury claim is a legal process in which an employee seeks compensation for an injury sustained in an 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.

Your workplace should be a safe environment where you can be sure that you won't be harmed or injured, and it is your employer's responsibility to guarantee that this is the case. If it isn't, it can mean that you, or someone you love, may be subject to an accident or injury that wasn't your fault and could be eligible to seek compensation. The effects of your injury may mean that you cannot work for a prolonged period of time, as well as having a long-lasting impact on your health depending on the severity of the accident in question.

At Forbes Solicitors, we have experience with a variety of industrial accidents and have successfully won compensation for many of our clients on a no win no fee basis. Our team will assess your situation and see how we can help, offering bespoke advice and support where we can.

What is classed as an industrial accident or injury?

For those submitting a claim for an industrial accident that wasn't their fault, it is classified as any accident or injury that has occurred in a place of work (i.e., an office, warehouse, or factory). It is the responsibility of an employer to make sure that their employees are safe at work, so if they are not, and they are injured they are likely to have grounds for a compensation claim.

If you believe that you have been victim to an industrial accident and it wasn't your fault, contact Forbes Solicitors today to see if we could get you the compensation you deserve.

What are examples of industrial accidents and injuries?

As this type of personal injury claim includes any workplace incident, there is a wide variety of accidents we have seen across our years of experience. However, because of the nature of the work environment, some of the more dangerous workplaces include factories, industrial plants, and building sites, which is where most of these can happen.

Some common examples of industrial accidents include:

  • Head Injuries (mild-severe)
  • Neck & Back Injuries
  • Chemical Burns
  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Faulty Machinery Injuries
  • Amputations
  • Broken bones

Why should I make a claim for an industrial accident or injury?

It's important to make a claim for any compensation you are owed if you have been victim to an industrial accident or injury, so that your employer is held accountable for their irresponsibility. Depending on the severity of the accident, you may have to take time off work and/or your ability to work may be affected for some time. If you make a claim then you may be able to receive financial compensation to help with this, so that you can get the care and support you need.

At Forbes Solicitors, we'll help you get the pay-out you deserve, so that you can afford medical treatment, care, rehabilitation, and receive compensation for what you've suffered. Our team are happy to review your case and see if we can assist you with your claim.

Is there a time limit on making an industrial accident compensation claim?

There is a standard three year period of eligibility if you are making a personal injury claim, including for industrial accidents and injuries. This three year period begins from the date of the accident or the date you were deemed to be aware that it could be as the result of a previous incident. Special circumstances can be made for individuals who are below the age of 18 and/or mentally incapacitated. In cases like this, the parent or guardian can act on the individual's behalf.

The best course of action however is to speak to a legal specialist about your claim as soon as possible, at Forbes Solicitors we'll be happy to evaluate your case and see if you can make an industrial accident claim.

How much compensation will I receive for an industrial accident claim?

The amount of compensation you'll receive will be dependent on the severity of your industrial accident, the effect it has had upon your life, as well as the treatment and medical care you will need access to.

At Forbes Solicitors, we can assess your case and give you an estimation based on previous compensation claims we have won for our clients.
