What Is A Factory Accident Claim?
Everyone has the right to be safe whilst they are at work, but sometimes things go wrong. Factories, in particular, can be dangerous places to work, with a great deal of machinery and other hazards. Despite the risks, your employer has to take all reasonable steps to protect you. If you are injured in an accident in a factory and it wasn’t your fault, you are entitled to claim compensation to help support you while you get your life back on track.

Compensation For Factory Accidents
It is impossible to know in advance how much compensation will be awarded for a particular claim. Each factory accident compensation claim is unique and the compensation obtained will be based on your personal circumstances. There are several different factors that are taken into consideration in all compensation claims, however.
Compensation claims can best be thought of in two parts. The first is there to make up for the pain and suffering you have endured, at least as far as this is possible. This follows national guidelines set down by the Judicial College. Under this framework, each injury has a range of compensation and payments for that injury are expected to fall somewhere within that range. The range can be very broad, however, to account for the vast individual differences in each injury.
In addition to this, you are also entitled to compensation for any financial costs, expenses or liabilities that you have incurred as a result of your factory accident. This is designed to ensure that you are not left financially worse off as the result of a factory accident that wasn’t your fault. This can include covering you for the loss of any earnings you could have expected during any period you have needed to be off work, or for the loss of potential future earnings, if your injuries mean that you are unable to return to your former profession. You are also able to claim the expenses associated with any additional medical care or rehabilitation that might have been necessary and hard to access via the NHS. For those who have very serious injuries, you are entitled to payments to allow you modify your home or vehicle to help you to live as close to the life you had before as possible. In general, you are entitled to claim back any expenses that you have had that would not have occurred had your factory accident not happened.
Expert help from our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors means that you can be sure that you are claim for all of the expenses you are entitled to. This means that you will have the financial support you need to get your life back on track as quickly as possible.
How Long Does It Take To Make A Factory Accident Claim?
Factory accident compensation claims can take very different amounts of time to complete, which reflects the unique nature of each case. We appreciate that you shouldn’t have to wait for the compensation you deserve, so we work tirelessly to ensure that you get the payment you need to put your factory accident behind you as quickly as possible.
Some cases can be settled very quickly indeed, with many taking just a couple of months and the very fastest needing only a few weeks. For cases to be resolved this quickly, they will usually be for more minor injuries and, therefore, smaller compensation amounts. If you are claiming a smaller amount of money, there is less incentive for the other side to reduce your claim through lengthy negotiations. Personal injury compensation claims that are resolved this quickly as also the ones where the other side accept liability almost immediately, removing the need for evidence gathering and offering proof, both of which take time.
If your personal injury claim involves a very serious injury or if it is not completely clear exactly who was responsible for your accident, your case is likely to be much more complicated and may take significantly longer to be resolved. If your claim cannot be settled out of court, it will take even longer.

What If My Factory Accident Happened A While Ago? Is There A Time Limit On Making A Claim?
Factory accident compensation claims are there to help you get your life back on track, so the courts expect that they are made promptly. For this reason, there is a time limit of two years from the date of the accident that led to your injury to make your claim. In some very unusual cases, for example where it was not possible to know that you had been injured at the time at which it took place, this deadline can be extended, but this is very rare. If you are coming close to the deadline it is essential that you contact our personal injury solicitors without delay.
Sometimes it is worth delaying starting your compensation claim a little while. This is to allow the full extent of your injuries to become clear, as some injuries are not immediately apparent or they may take longer to heal than expected. You should still get expert legal advice from our personal injury specialists as soon as possible, however, as this gives us the maximum time to put together the best possible case for you.
How Making A Factory Accident Compensation Claim Works
The process of making a factory accident compensation claim is the same for almost all types of personal injury.
Most people who have suffered an accident or injury will want to take legal advice before starting their personal injury compensation claim, and we believe that this is a very good idea. We are available 24/7 to ensure that you can access the help you need whenever suits you. You can call us or claim online to make sure that you get the support and assistance you need for your factory accident claim.
The first thing we, as your solicitors, need to do is notify the other person that you are making a factory accident compensation claim against them. We ask them to accept that they were at fault and we give them a deadline by which they must respond.
If the person at fault in your accident denies that they were to blame, we will collect all of the evidence we can find and present them with a strong case as to why they are liable. This can include pictures, videos and statements, as well as more technical and legal backing documents if needed. Once presented with this evidence, almost all employers will accept that they are liable.
When we have established with the other party that they were to blame for your accident, we will then begin negotiations to decide how much compensation is fair following your injuries. There are many tactics and techniques used by the other side to try to convince you to accept a lower amount than you are entitled to. Whether to accept or reject an offer of compensation is always up to you, but our expert guidance and advice will allow you to be sure that the amount you agree to is a fair reflection of what you are entitled to.
Almost all of our cases are resolved without needing to go to court, as the other person accepts liability and we find a compensation amount that both sides think is fair. In a very few cases, however, it might be necessary to ask a judge to decide, if we are unable to form an agreement.

What Do I Need To Know To Make A Factory Accident Claim?
In the aftermath of a factory accident, most of our clients are looking for reassurance. Many of them are not sure whether they fulfil the criteria for making a factory accident compensation claim. In most cases they are able to claim, as the requirements are very straightforward.
You are only able to make a compensation claim for things that you have actually suffered. You are only able to make a factory accident compensation claim if you have experienced a factory accident, not if you suffered a near miss. Similarly, you are only able to make a claim for the damage you have actually sustained, not the damage that you could have suffered, or for injuries that you narrowly avoided.
The next consideration when wondering whether you are able to make a factory accident compensation claim is to think about who is responsible for your factory accident. There must be someone else to blame for what happened to you, and this is the person or organisation that you will claim against. In the case of an accident or injury at work, your employer will almost certainly be the person at fault. This is because they have a legal responsibility to keep you safe and your injury demonstrates that they were unsuccessful in this task.
It is also necessary that your accident or injury is something that the other party could have reasonably predicted or anticipated, if they had given sufficient thought to health and safety concerns. This is not the same as saying that they must have known that it would happen. Merely that they could have realised that this was possible, if they had thought carefully enough.
The final consideration is what measures were taken to protect you. If no protective measures were put in place, your claim is highly likely to be successful. If they did take some steps to keep you safe, you may still be able to claim if these were not sufficient, given the degree of risk.
If you have suffered a factory accident and you believe that someone else was to blame, we are here to help you put together the best possible factory accident compensation claim. Call our experienced team of expert personal injury claims solicitors or claim online today to see how we can help.
What Should You Do Following A Factory Accident?
The most important thing after any factory accident is to make sure that you are safe from any further harm and that you have access to the medical assistance you need. Only once you have made sure that this is sorted should you consider taking a few simple steps to help support your claim, if you feel that you are able to do so.
The first thing anyone who has experienced a factory accident should do, once they are safe, is to make a written record of what has happened. This should include any details that you can remember. The more detailed your account is, the better it will be as evidence. You should try to include details, even if they seem irrelevant, as they may help you remember more later.
It can also be helpful to make sure that you have the names and contact details of any witnesses to your factory accident. You are welcome to ask them to write down everything they remember, but we are also able to do this for you, as long as we know who they are and are able to contact them. Witnesses can provide strong support when you are demonstrating the causes of your factory accident.
Collecting photographs or videos of the area in which your factory accident happened can also be very helpful, but you should only do this if it safe to do so. Anything showing relevant details, including anything that might have caused or exacerbated (made worse) your factory accident is particularly valuable to show.
Although taking these steps can help to provide additional evidence to strengthen your factory accident compensation claim, it is not necessary for you to have done any of them. The period immediately after your factory accident is already stressful enough, so please do not feel under any pressure to arrange for these tasks to be carried out. The most important thing that you can do to help you get the compensation you deserve is to call us or claim online to arrange a free call back at a time that is convenient to you. This will ensure that you get the best possible legal advice and assistance on a no win no fee basis.
