Stockrooms can be crowded places. For the most part they are well organised and filled with shelving that is stocked with all kinds of things, ready to be put out onto the shop floor when required.
As you can imagine, the shelving in the average stockroom can be quite high. This means anyone trying to reach the upper shelves should have access to a step-stool or stepladder that can help them reach those shelves without putting themselves at risk. If this is not the case, or if someone is forced to stretch beyond their capability to reach the stock they need, there is an increased chance that injuries might occur.
How serious could a stockroom fall be?
Stockroom fall compensation can be paid in instances where a fall incurs a minor injury, as well as in cases where someone suffers a major injury. Since there is rarely any room to fall in when an accident of this type occurs, there is a chance you may end up with multiple injuries. You might hit an arm or leg during the fall, or hit your head, perhaps on shelving or on a box of stock.
Either way, you can assume an accident in a stockroom does have the potential to create some unpleasant injuries for you to deal with. A stockroom fall compensation claim will take into account any and all injuries you have suffered, as well as considering how severe they are. If you have lost out on anything in a financial sense due to the accident, you may be in a position to be compensated for these things as well. Loss of earnings due to not being able to work is a good example of this.
