If you have slipped whilst working in a factory as a result of another individual’s negligence, and have suffered a serious personal injury as a result, you could be entitled to claim financial compensation. Compensation is a legal entitlement, and is intended to help you cover the costs of running a home during a period spent out of work, as well as covering any medical or rehabilitation fees.
Common Factory Slipping Accidents
The factory floor can be a hazardous place. If it is not managed correctly, supervisors have not received adequate training or inappropriate footwear and clothing is provided to employees, slips are common, and can result in debilitating personal injuries and a long period spent out of work.
Common factory slipping accidents include:
- slips on ice build-up around the entrances of industrial freezer units;
- slips on chemical spills;
- slips on dropped ingredients in food manufacturing factories;
- slips on water and soap spills;
If you have been injured following one of the above accidents, or you have suffered an injury following a slip on the factory floor due to some other form of negligence, get in touch with a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to discuss making a factory accident claim.
