    Summary of factory accidents in the workplace

    Have you been injured in an accident? Was it not your fault and has it taken place in the last three years? If this is the case then you could be entitled to a work accident claim.

    Thanks to heavy machinery being operated in warehouses and large factories up and down the country, the dangers are evident.

    Forklift trucks handled in the improper way could not only lead to serious injury but a potential factory work accident claim.

    Causes of a factory accident

    As far as factory work accident claims are concerned, they can occur in a number of different ways. Firstly, if a driver is speeding they may lose control and collide with a fellow worker. In addition to this, body parts may become entrapped under forklift trucks, especially when used in a large warehouse or factory.

    Due to the fast paced environment where everyone is under pressure mistakes can occur. Potential dangers include anything from sharp objects impaling an individual to slips on surfaces that are covered with water or have not been cleaned properly. Again this might end up as yet another statistic when it comes to a serious accident at work.

    Potential claims in the YouTube video

    Whilst some people take liberties on equipment such as forklift trucks in order to perform crazy stunts, this kind of dangerous act may harm others. Yet if you have a look at this particular video clip at 2:20 seconds in, you will see a forklift truck driver in a spot of bother.

    As he lifts the palette of bottles onto the truck, suddenly they all topple on top of him causing a nasty work accident. In this way, you can clearly see the possible dangers of a factory accident at work.

    Responsibility

    The first rule of a work accident claim is finding out where the blame lies. In this case, the company may be responsible for insufficiently providing stable equipment to load the products in a safe manner onto the forklift truck.
