A warehouse accident can be a devastating experience. One minute you are going about your daily business, the next, your life is changed forever. And despite the safety training that takes place for those working in warehouses, thousands of people still suffer personal injuries after accidents at work each year.
Of course there are the obvious material costs of a factory accident; but there is also the damage that an accident can cause to you mentally and emotionally.
If you’ve been injured in an accident at work you may be entitled to claim for compensation.
Injuries caused by an accident at work can range from the relatively minor to the serious and of course death. If you have been injured in a factory accident in the past three years you may be entitled to claim for compensation.
Compensation covers all kinds of areas which you may be struggling with after being injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault. Areas such as:
- Medical bills
- Loss of earnings
- Travel expenses
- Modifications to your home
How you can make a claim after an accident at work
Wherever you work and whoever your employer is, there are rules designed to keep you safe. These regulations should always be adhered to and if someone has not ensured the rules are being carried out, despite thorough safety training, they may be held accountable.
With the right advice and assistance you may be able to claim compensation for injuries. This is money that could be used by you and your family as you recover from your injuries, as well as if you are unable to work for some time afterwards.
