The answer to the question, “Can I claim for an injury at a storage unit?” will depend on the circumstances leading to the unfortunate occurrence. Generally, in order to make a claim, you must not have been responsible for the accident that led to your injury.
Storage units are potentially dangerous places so it is important that you take care whenever you enter one. Boxes and other items can be stacked high up so there is a danger that they could fall and injure you. Then there is the danger of you tripping over items that could also lead to injury. Whatever caused your storage unit injury, you should seek legal advice and find out whether or not you can make a claim.

Will I be able to make a claim?
By contacting us here at Accident Advice Helpline you are taking those steps towards learning whether or not you can make a storage unit injury claim. There are many things to consider. Who actually put the goods into the unit? Was it you or someone else? If your injury was due to a fall, were you wearing suitable footwear and was the lighting adequate? Did you take any unnecessary risks such as climbing over boxes? All these points will be taken into account by our lawyers when deciding if you have grounds for a claim.
What information do you need to give us?
To determine whether you have grounds for a claim and, if so, to help you pursue it, we need as much information as possible about the incident that led to your injury. This means we need to have your own recollection, as well as the recollections of those who may have witnessed the incident.
Should you have a case for compensation, the information you provide will help us decide who the claim should be made against.
You should also see your doctor as soon as possible following your storage unit injury. Of course, it is very important you have those injuries treated, but your doctor’s report could also play an important role in determining the amount of compensation awarded in a successful claim.
