If you’ve been injured after a slip, trip or fall in a warehouse, you might be wondering if there is anything you can do about it. Although warehouses have the potential to be dangerous environments, provided health and safety procedures are adhered to, you can stay safe at work in a warehouse. But if you’ve been injured and you think more could have been done to prevent your accident from happening then you could make a personal injury claim, provided it has been three years or less since your accident. For warehouse fall compensation advice, look no further than Accident Advice Helpline – our expert advisors are on hand to offer free advice, whatever your circumstances.
Warehouse fall injuries
You could be injured after a fall from height in a warehouse, or you could trip or slip, which could lead to a fall. Falls from height are a leading cause of workplace fatalities, and if you are working at height (for example on the roof or sorting stock) then safety precautions should be taken. You could slip on spillages on the floor or an unmarked wet floor, or trip over boxes left lying around or damaged flooring.
Whatever has happened, if your employer is to blame then you could make a personal injury claim. Injuries can range from minor injuries like a sprained ankle to serious head and spinal injuries which could leave you unable to work. For warehouse fall compensation advice, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline within three years of your accident.
