Protective Equipment Claims

Protective Equipment Compensation Claims

Your employer has a legal obligation to ensure you and your colleagues are given the right protective equipment (PPE) to protect you from injury when working in both hazardous and conventional working conditions.

If your employer hasn’t supplied you with suitable personal protective equipment for your job, and you suffer from an accident or injury, we can give you advice you need and help you and your family get the compensation you deserve.

Common examples of protective equipment claims may arise from:

  • breathing in harmful fumes or toxins
  • suffering cuts to the body
  • head injuries caused by falling objects
  • suffering burns from hot surfaces or chemicals
  • eye damage caused due to lack of protective goggles

Making a Protective Equipment Claim

It is compulsory for your employer to hold Employer’s Liability Insurance. Not all accidents at work are covered by this type of insurance, but it does mean that where an employer is found to be negligent and in breach of regulations, the insurer will pay compensation.

How much will my claim cost?

All protective equipment cases taken on by Hudgell Solicitors are handled on a no win no fee basis. This means that you will not have to pay any money up front and there will be no financial risk if your case is unsuccessful.

If your case is successful, you will only be expected to pay a contribution to your solicitor’s fees once the case has been resolved. The costs paid are usually a percentage of the compensation awarded and will be agreed before your case is carried out.
