    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Were you injured by faulty warehouse equipment?

    Working in a warehouse is very different from working in an office job. For starters, you are likely to do a lot of walking. Warehouses are also very busy places, with lots of people checking stock levels, fetching and moving stock and also using forklift trucks and pallet trucks in the course of their work. If you are injured by faulty warehouse equipment, then, you may find you cannot carry on with your work for the foreseeable future.

    This can be devastating, and you also have the task of trying to recover from whatever injuries you have ended up with in the first place. While there could be several potential hazards in any warehouse, most of them are excellent in terms of the way they are run and managed by employers.

    Faulty equipment

    Faulty equipment could mean anything from a forklift truck that isn’t working properly, to shelving or racking that hasn’t been fixed correctly, to a pallet truck that may collapse instead of being able to raise stock up off the ground by a certain amount.

    All the equipment used in a warehouse should be fit for purpose. However, even in situations where it begins in excellent condition, it may end up being far from ideal. If someone hits racking with a forklift and doesn’t report it, the racking could be unstable. Even if it is reported, something must be done about it to make sure no one is injured when they are nearby.

    How bad are your injuries?

    Your injuries do not need to be serious for you to have a chance at claiming some compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has already managed to secure compensation for a number of other people over the past few years who have been involved in accidents of this very nature.
