Defective Equipment Claims
There’s nothing wrong in expecting the tools and equipment we are given to do our job to work properly and be suited to the tasks we need to complete. In the vast majority of cases, we can rely on our equipment and tools but when we can’t, we may find ourselves being the victim of an accident that wasn’t our fault.
Overcoming Injustice and Negligence
Blackwater Law have dealt with hundreds of defective equipment claims over the years and can help you fight for the compensation that your deserve. Defective equipment compensation can help you to pay for any treatment that you might need to overcome your injury and can also cover any loss of income resulting from it. It can also go some way towards improving your quality of life and even encourage others to come forward if they’ve been the victim of a workplace accident that wasn’t their fault, at the same time making employers aware of the need for fully-operational safe equipment and tools. Sadly, some people have died due to faulty workplace equipment but compensation can also help your loved ones pay for any costs incurred due to your death.
Your Employer’s Obligations
Our lawyers have worked on a wide series of defective equipment cases and can help you fight for justice. Employers are legally obliged to ensure that all machinery and working equipment is in good working order and that it is maintained regularly. All employees should be fully trained in using the equipment and protective clothing and accessories should be issued if there are risks attached to it. Employees must also inform staff if any risks are discovered and faulty equipment must be withdrawn from use if it needs to be repaired or replaced.
