SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS
The expert personal injury solicitors at Forbes can help you claim compensation for your injuries sustained at work, and specialise in forklift truck accident compensation claims.
If you have been involved in a forklift truck accident at work, either as a driver or a passer-by and you feel it was not your fault, you are entitled to claim compensation.
Forklift accidents can be extremely dangerous and can cause serious injury. You may have been asked to drive a forklift truck without the proper training, or may have been working in close proximity to one and a driver has hit you or dropped a heavy load on you. In either case, you have grounds to claim compensation.
Here at Forbes Solicitors we deal with many compensation claims regarding forklift truck accidents but the most common issues usually involve:
Your employer has a duty of care to ensure you are provided with the appropriate safety gear when working with or around forklift trucks, whether in the form of hard hats, high visibility jackets, or steel toe boots. In addition, it is also your employers responsibility to ensure adequate training has been provided and all maintenance has been carried out. If your employer fails to ensure any of these basic safety needs and you are injured as a result you may be able to make a compensation claim.
Forbes solicitors specialise in forklift accident compensation claims and have the relevant experience needed to ensure a swift and positive resolution to your claim all on a No Win No Fee basis. Our focus is on getting you the compensation you deserve and making sure you have access to the help you need, whether private medical care or on going rehabilitation programs to help you with recovery.
Forklift truck accidents can have a big impact on your life. In addition to any injuries sustained in the accident itself, you may also have to deal with taking unpaid time off work and out of pocket expenses to help you recover - which can cause financial strain. Depending on your injury, there may be a long-term impact on your health or your ability to work, which affects not only the person who was hurt, but also your loved ones too. Below, we have answered some of the most common questions that we are asked. If you can't find an answer to your question here, please don't hesitate to contact our team so that we can help you.
Forklift truck accidents can often involve people other than the driver of the vehicle. Many forklift accidents cause injuries to other employees or even site visitors. Any injured party involved in an incident like this, if it wasn't their fault, could be eligible for forklift accident compensation.
Forklift claims are considered personal injury claims, so there is a time limit of three years from the date of the injury for you to make a claim. As it can sometimes take a considerable amount of time to gather evidence for this type of claim, we always encourage people who have been injured in a forklift accident to contact us as soon as possible after the incident took place to maximise the chances of a successful outcome.
The amount of compensation that you might receive for a successful forklift accident claim will depend on a few factors. These include:
