JCB accidents can occur for a number of reasons, but if you feel that you have been injured through negligence on behalf of an operator, builder or your employer, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred through medical treatment or loss of income. 

How could an accident occur?

JCB accidents can occur in a number of ways but most commonly involve faulty machinery or incorrectly trained operators. If a machine is faulty it could malfunction and cause an injury to the operator. If the operator has been poorly trained they could direct the machine in the wrong direction or lead it to move items around which could in turn injure another member of staff. In addition if the area is not clearly signposted to other employees then they could easily find themselves in the direct path of a JCB which could result in injuries. 

What types of injuries could I receive?

When it comes to injuries that commonly occur as the result of a JCB accident they include:

  • Head and neck injuries from falling items
  • Broken bones and limbs which may have been crushed
  • Injuries which may occur from being hit or run over by a machine
  • Injuries which may occur through incorrect use of the machine.

Who could I make a claim against?

When it comes to making a claim you can claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you. This could include the manufacturer if you believe that the machine you were delivered was faulty, you could make a claim against the operator if you believe they have been negligent towards you, or towards your employee if you believe they haven’t provided you with the correct training that you required to safely operate the machinery.
