Claiming compensation for the use of faulty products at work

Whether it’s a microwave and kettle or a fax machine and printer, the products that you use in your place of work are essential towards getting you through the day and as such you would expect them to be maintained to the highest standards. It is your employer’s duty to protect the health and safety of their employees and that means providing safe products, but unfortunately this isn’t always the case and you may become injured as a result which could cause you to become hospitalised. 

If you have suffered a personal injury at work as a result of faulty products, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. There are many instances where you could become injured in the workplace as a result of faulty products, leaving you in a lot of pain and forced to spend time off work as a result. So if you believe that you haven’t been provided adequate equipment to work with and you are injured, then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.

Where instances could I look to claim?

The products that you use in the workplace are vital towards ensuring you are productive, so if they are faulty and cause you to have an injury you could be eligible for compensation. Some common examples of where a claim could be made include:

·         Claims if you have been injured as a result of a faulty kettle

Who might be responsible for your claim?

If you have been injured as a result of faulty products in the workplace, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation if you believe that negligence has taken place. Whether it is a printer in an office or a piece of machinery on a construction site, it is important that they are maintained and safe for use otherwise you could be seriously injured. It is the responsibility of your manager or the company to ensure that you are safe in the workplace, so if this isn’t the case you could look to make a claim against them. It is important to remember that you must be able to prove your claim in court, otherwise you will fail in your attempt to receive compensation.
