Lathe Accident at Work

Lathe Accident at Work.

Had an accident at work caused by a defective lathe or similar piece of equipment or plant? We can help you claim compensation for your injuries and losses.

Claiming for your lathe accident

Accidents at work can happen to anyone at any time but if you work with machinery such as lathes, band saws, and grinders then there is every chance an accident could well be serious – we understand this; Mike Massen of Cohen Cramer is a time served fitter turner with a few scars of his own from his days at the lathe.

Your employer has an obligation to ensure that you are safe while at your place of work. They are required to make sure that all equipment is tested on a regular basis and in good working order. All machines must have the correct guards in place and all hand tools in good condition. These are absolute obligations and a breach of them can make your employer liable for any injuries may sustain while at work.

What you can claim

As well as seeking compensation for your injuries, we will make sure that you also recover all and any financial losses that arise from the accident, which can include:

  • Lost income as a result of time from work for recovery or treatment
  • The cost of medication or treatment you may require
  • Property, such as clothing or glasses damaged in the accident
  • Compensation for ‘prejudice on the job market’ if you sustained a particularly severe injury.

Whatever your losses we can help you recover the compensation that you deserve.

Your employer owes you a duty of care to ensure that all machinery is in good working condition and adequately guarded to ensure your safety at work. In addition, they must have safe working practices to make sure that you don’t injure yourself at work and train you properly. They must also make sure that they employ reliable and safe colleagues and workmates so that you are not injured by other people’s mistakes.

These are your rights as an employee and they are not options for your employer to pick and choose from. If you have been injured at work you are entitled to make a claim.
