    Where to get forklift injury compensation advice


    Forklifts can be incredibly heavy, weighing anywhere from 2,800 pounds to over 100,000 pounds. This is why it’s so important that forklift operators are experienced and trained at operating a forklift. You’ll find these vehicles in use in warehouses, factories and other industrial settings, and provided they are operated carefully, there should be minimal risk of accidents happening.

    Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case, and it’s possible to be injured either as the operator of a forklift or as another employee in the vicinity of the vehicle. Accident Advice Helpline’s team of personal injury advisors can offer you forklift injury compensation advice if this has happened to you.

    Forklift injuries – what’s the worst that could happen?

    Forklifts can topple and cause crush injuries to the operator or anybody in the vicinity. They could run over bystanders, causing serious crush injuries, broken bones and internal injuries. Injuries can range from minor cuts and bruises to serious lacerations, punctured lungs, broken ribs and even head injuries. There have even been cases where people have lost limbs after being crushed by a forklift in a warehouse or factory setting.

    If your employer has insisted you operate a forklift without training, or if you have been injured by a forklift operator who wasn’t qualified to operate the vehicle then you could make a claim for personal injury compensation within three years of your accident. For confidential, no-obligation forklift injury compensation advice, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline – we have 15 years’ experience handling personal injury claims so you know you can trust us.

    Do you deserve compensation?

    If somebody else is to blame for your forklift accident at work then we want you to get the compensation you’re entitled to. It doesn’t matter if you’re struggling financially and worried about paying legal fees – our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis. There’s no need to worry about going to court either, as the majority of claims can be processed over the phone.
