What is industrial injuries compensation?
An industrial injury can be defined as any injury that has taken place within the workplace, whether that was in a factory, on a construction site, in an office, in a public sector job or in a retail store. Claims for Industrial Injuries Compensation ensure that victims of workplace accidents and disease are able to receive financial compensation to help support recovery.
What type of industrial injuries and accidents can I claim for?
Over the past 20 years, our industrial injuries compensation solicitors have helped injured clients claim for a wide variety of work related claims, including but not limited to the following:
- Industrial disease claims, including for vibration white finger (HAVS), noise induced hearing loss and work related upper limb disorders (WRULD)
- Accidents in factories, including claims involving defective machinery, accidents involving forklift trucks and slipping and tripping accidents
- Manual handling accidents, including claims for injury resulting from lifting, pushing and pulling
- Construction site accidents, including accidents caused by falling from a height, crushing injuries and accidents involving plant machinery
- Farming & Agricultural Accidents, including crushing and falling accidents
- Asbestos related disease claims, including for asbestosis, mesothelioma, pleural thickening and asbestos lung cancer
If you have sustained a work related injury which is not listed above, please do not be put off in contacting us as we have a vast wealth of experience and expertise in industrial injuries compensation claims and are available today to discuss your potential claim.
How long do I have to make my industrial injuries compensation claim?
The law in England & Wales states that there is a 3 year period from the date of the accident in which you are able to make a claim.
This 3 year claim deadline can also commence from the date you first realised symptoms of your industrial injury or illness may have been linked with your work. In industrial claims for HAVS or asbestos related disease this may be several years after initial exposure.
All industrial injury claims are different and we recommend you seek legal advice as soon as possible to avoid falling foul of these strict claim time limits.
How much compensation will I receive for my industrial injury claim?
The amount of compensation you might be able to claim for will depend on the type and seriousness of your injuries.
Other factors to consider when considering the value of an industrial injury claim include any past, present and future loss of earnings, medical care and expenses you may have incurred as a result of the accident.

How long do industrial injuries compensation claims take to settle?
The claim process depends on a number of important factors including the severity of your injuries, the complexity of the legal issues surrounding your case and whether liability is conceded or disputed.
Every work-related claim is different, some straightforward claims may settle in 12 to 18 months, whereas more serious and complex matters may take 2 or 3 years to reach a successful conclusion.
Rest assured, our experienced industrial injury solicitors will keep you updated throughout the entire claims process and offer the highest levels of legal advice and support.
