Faulty work equipment claims

Our accident at work solicitors often receive enquiries from employees who have been injured due to their employer’s failure to provide them with equipment which is in full working order. This is usually due to a lack of regular maintenance and inspection on the employer’s behalf.

This scenario is very common as a fault or defective piece of equipment, particularly in certain industries, can lead to the risk of a very serious accident occurring.

If you have been injured at work due to defective or faulty equipment and would like to speak to us about making a claim for compensation call us on 0203 816 0065 or you can complete our online enquiry form and we will contact you directly. 


Making a compensation claim

At Stephensons our specialist accident at work solicitors will investigate whether your employer knew or should have known about the faulty equipment before your accident occurred, and if they did have knowledge, we will question why measures were not put in place to repair the equipment and avoid your accident.

Employer’s responsibility

Your employer has the duty to ensure you are safe whilst at work and to do the following:

  • Ensure that adequate risk assessments are in place
  • Ensure regular and adequate maintenance and inspection of machinery and equipment is carried out
  • Ensure that personal protective equipment has been provided, if required
  • Ensure that you are provided with a safe system of work

If you or your loved one have sustained an injury through no fault of your own call us on 0203 816 0065.
