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
