    Compensation for haulage firm accidents

    Haulage firms take on a myriad of different jobs for all kinds of companies. For example many businesses rely on haulage firms to get their goods from one place to another – often hundreds of miles away from its original point. Without these firms we wouldn’t have the wide choice of goods that we do.

    Fortunately working in the haulage industry is a safe and rewarding thing to do. With many different jobs available, lots of people find their ideal work in this industry. Thankfully very few will ever find themselves involved in haulage firm accidents, mostly since the standards of safety in the industry are very high indeed. When these standards slip however, people can potentially be injured.

    How might haulage firm accidents happen?

    When there are big lorries involved in manoeuvring their way around a haulage yard, there is the potential for things to go wrong. This is why the majority of haulage firms make sure there are ample safety measures in place. There should be clear areas where pedestrians can walk around the yard without risking an accident, for example.

    Accident Advice Helpline knows of instances where this type of accident has occurred. Haulage yard accidents are rare indeed, but when they do happen they have the potential to be very serious indeed for those who are unfortunate enough to be injured. We have won compensation for people who have received injuries in such circumstances.

    Excellent safety standards

    It should be noted that the vast majority of businesses in this sector do everything they can to ensure everyone is safe. This applies to both visitors and workers. Situations where things do go wrong are rare indeed. If they do occur they may be present because health and safety laws have been broken.
