What are defective equipment injury claims? 

Regardless of the industry you work in, and the equipment that you use as part of your job role, if you have been injured as a result of defective equipment in the workplace, then you could be eligible for financial compensation through a no win no fee defective equipment injury claim with our no win no fee accident at work solicitors
Whether it’s construction equipment, manufacturing equipment, or any other type of machinery, your employer has a duty of care to ensure that proper maintenance and safety procedures are followed in order to prevent defective equipment injuries. This could be inadequate maintenance of equipment, a failure to carry out safety checks, missing safety guards or covers on equipment, inadequate training of employees, and a failure to provide PPE for those jobs that involve using dangerous equipment. 
If you have been injured at work, in an accident at work in any way, then do not hesitate to contact our no win no fee accident at work solicitors online here and speak to a no win no fee solicitor about how we can help you within one working hour. 

Can I claim for personal injury as a result of defective equipment at work? 

Your employer is legally obliged to ensure that all work equipment supplied to its employees, whether brand new, or old, is working correctly.  
The liability upon your employer is what is known as ‘strict’ liability, so if it can be shown that the defective equipment caused you to be injured, then you are entitled to make claim personal injury compensation from your employer’s public liability insurance.  
Essentially, everything your employer supplies for you at work, or can be found in your work environment, is classed as equipment. For example, even a broken chair in an office is classed as defective equipment. As the liability upon your employer is strict, regardless of whether or not the equipment had a full maintenance record, you may well have a strong case for personal injury compensation. 

What type of injuries are caused by defective equipment? 

The types of injury caused by defective equipment are as varied as the equipment that causes the personal injury. MG Legal’s personal injury solicitors have won thousands of defective equipment personal injury claims against employers. Some of the most common injuries are listed below. 
• Dislocation injuries 
• Respiratory illness 
• Frostbite 
• Blindness

Mechanic injured after defective equipment accident at work: 

In the accident at work, the employee was cutting through a disc brake on a car using an electric saw, which was a job and a piece of equipment that he had used many times before. While he was using the electric saw, the blade snapped and large pieces of sharp metal from the broken blade flew back into the mechanic’s 
face, throwing him backwards at the same time. The injured employee was rushed to hospital and had stitches and the wound was glued, but it was impossible to hide the two deep lacerations that were left on the employee’s forehead. 
These injuries and the associated pain led to headaches, pain and dizziness, and after attempting to go back to work after 10 days, he was then signed off for a further four weeks by his doctor. 
In an accident at work like this caused by defective work equipment, all of these factors play a part in the claim and its value. When you choose to make a no win no fee accident at work claim with our specialist solicitors, your claim will be made up of two compensation amounts, general damages and special damages. The first of these values, general damages, is compensation for the pain and suffering associated with your injuries. The other compensation amount, known as special damages, is calculated on an individual basis, and accounts for money for any time spent off work, medication costs, travel costs, and any other expenses associated with your defective equipment accident at work.

There are exceptions for those under 18 years old at time of the injury, in that minors have three years from their 18th birthday within which to make a personal injury claim.
