SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS

together

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.

Common Forklift Truck Accident Claims

Here at Forbes Solicitors we deal with many compensation claims regarding forklift truck accidents but the most common issues usually involve:

  • Unlicensed drivers - Drivers using forklift trucks without the appropriate training or licensing
  • Reckless driving - Drivers not paying attention or using forklift trucks for anything other than the job required
  • Heavy or Unstable loads - Overloading forklift trucks or not securing them properly can lead to injury if a load falls off
  • Collisions - Hitting a passer-by or colliding with another object and knocking it into a worker
  • Crushing injuries - whether running over pedestrians or pinning them between the forklift truck and another object

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.
