Dangerous Machinery Claims & Defective Equipment

Industrial workplaces use automated machinery to increase productivity but they have to make sure that:

  • Workers, especially those involved in manual handling operations, are wearing suitable equipment which is in good working condition;
  • The equipment and machines are fully functional;
  • The employees are properly trained for the tasks they carry, particularly if they operate dangerous machines.
  • In case the equipment or the machinery is dysfunctional and it causes a work accident, the employer is liable for the personal injuries and other additional damages, even if he claims he wasn’t aware of the existing technical issue.


How long do I have to put in a compensation claim?

Usually you have three years to start legal proceedings for personal injury, however in the case of claims related to Asbestos or delayed symptoms f you would have three years from the date the symptoms / causes were identified by a professional.

If in doubt about your right to claim or if a deadline is fast approaching please call us we will be happy to look into your case.
