Claiming compensation for injuries caused by a faulty winch

Working with a winch can be a dangerous activity as there are certain safety precautions which should be put into place before you consider using it, including checking the cable for any frays and kinks, wearing safety equipment such as heavy duty gloves and appropriate training. If you have been injured while operating a faulty winch then you may be required to have substantial treatment, causing you to miss out on work as well as having a hefty hospital bill.

If you believe certain requirements have not been met while operating a winch, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. It is the responsibility of your employers to ensure that all the equipment you use is in full working order, because the risks could pose a serious threat to your health. A claim of this nature could result in a large pay-out, so if you suspect that another person has put your health at risk then making a claim could be your best option.

Where could I look to make a claim?

If you have been injured as a result of a faulty winch 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 broken bones

·         Claims against permanent nerve damage

·         Claims against facial injuries and permanent scarring

·         Claims if you have lost your vision

·         Claims if you have been left brain damaged

Who could I make a claim against?

In general, if you believe that you have been the victim of negligence then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. 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 winch. An injury as a result of a faulty winch 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.
