A lorry driver injury claim happens more often than you might think. Anyone can suffer an injury at work, with lorry drivers being at risk as a result of the type of work they undertake. It is not simply road traffic accidents that can be a problem. Drivers can easily be injured while loading and unloading goods, and there is always the danger that they can fall from the lorry – either from the back while loading or unloading or from the cab as they are climbing in and out. Whatever the cause, this type of accident can lead to serious injury and subsequently a great deal of time away from work. For some lorry drivers this can see a large reduction in pay and cause financial problems that will need to be resolved.
In any working environment it is the responsibility of the employer to make sure that their workers are safe while carrying out their daily duties; however, this is not always done properly and this is where firms such as Accident Advice Helpline can step in.
