Claiming compensation for injuries caused by a faulty hoist

Regardless of where you work, suffering an injury as a result of a faulty hoist could pose a serious threat to your health and may require you to have substantial treatment. An injury such as this is not just confined to those who work in construction, factories or any other form of manual labour, as you can be equally at risk if you worked in a supermarket or as a delivery driver. According to the Health and Safety Act of 1974, it is your employer’s responsibility to ensure that there is little to no risk posed to you and if you believe that this was not the case, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Working with faulty equipment is unacceptable in the current day and age, so if you have been left with injuries that could have been avoided then you could claim for negligence against your employers. This type of claim could result in a large pay-out, because the risks that it poses to your health are very high and in some cases it can even result in death, making it a much more serious reason to claim.

What instances might I look to make a claim?

If you have been injured as a result of a hoist failure at work then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. There are several instances where you may look to claim, including:

·         Claims against a lack of safety equipment

·         Claims if you have lost a limb

·         Claims if you have been hit by falling debris

·         Claims if you have been left paralysed

·         Claims if you have been left brain damaged

Who could I make a claim against?

If the equipment that you have been provided with at work is faulty or badly maintained then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. An injury as a result of a hoist failure is very serious and as such you could receive a substantial figure if your claim is successful, so if you can prove that your injury has been caused as a result of someone else’s negligence then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence. There are a number of people who you could look to claim against in an instance such as this, but this would most likely be your employers for failing to provide an adequate safety harness.
