Manufacturing Industry Claims
If you have been injured while working in a manufacturing job, you may want to seek compensation. The injuries resulting from an accident in a manufacturing plant can often be quite serious, possibly resulting in permanent disability. If you believe that your injury was caused by negligence on the part of your employer or another employee, then you may be able to claim compensation as a result.
Types of Accidents
While compensation sadly can’t take back away the pain and suffering that your injury has caused, it can help with the recovery process and bring you one step closer to getting your life back to where it was before the accident happened. No matter how serious or minor you might think your injury is, Jefferies Solicitors are here to help ensure that you can get the compensation you deserve.
There are certain accident types which are more likely to occur in a manufacturing setting than others, including:
- Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents
- Forklift Accidents
- Manual Handling Accidents
- Machinery-related Accidents
- Fall from Height Accidents
- Repetitive Strain Injuries
- Overexertion Injuries
If you have had to undergo medical treatment due to your injury, have had to go to repeated hospital visits or have had to take a large amount of time off from work, any of these signs would indicate that your injury has been serious. If you have suffered a serious injury from work, you may need consistent care and extensive treatment going forward to ensure that you recover. Compensation can help cover the costs associated with treatment, care and the need to take time off work or find a different job role.
Amount of Compensation for Manufacturing Industry Claims
Compensation is determined by taking into account the amount of pain and suffering that has been caused by an injury, as well as taking into account whether the injury has caused a loss of amenity/a loss in the ability to function as you normally would. For example, if you are unable to complete certain tasks that you normally would have prior to the accident, then compensation may be able to account for this. Compensation also takes financial losses into account. For example, if you have been unable to work due to your injuries and this has caused you to suffer a loss of income, then compensation may be able to account for this cost. Similarly, if you have had to pay for treatment or any other costs associated with recovery, then it may be possible to account for such expenses through compensation.
