Warehouse worker accident advice

There are several ways in which a warehouse worker can be injured on the job, so warehouse worker accident advice may be needed by those who are looking to file a personal injury claim. In many warehouse environments there are potential hazards in the form of boxes on high shelving that could fall on a passing worker, the regular use of fork lift trucks that could be involved in a collision and tools and machinery that could cause accidental injury. If someone suffers an accident of any kind in a warehouse that is not their fault, contacting Accident Advice Helpline with any questions will help to give them the information they may require in order to make a claim.

If you or someone you know suffers an accident in the workplace, the first thing to do is to approach the injured party and check that they are in no further danger where they are. It may be that a machine needs to be shut down, for example, to ensure that the victim suffers no further injury. After making this check it is advisable to immediately contact the emergency services so that the victim can receive treatment for their injury. The medical records produced during this treatment will be a valuable piece of evidence to be used in the victim’s claim for compensation.

Know your rights

The rights of an employee during the personal injury claim process can be clarified by contacting Accident Advice Helpline on our free 24/7 telephone helpline. Contacting the helpline also entitles you to receive free legal advice, which will help to answer any queries that you may have regarding your claim for compensation. Our specialist solicitors also operate on a no win no fee* basis.

If it is possible, evidence should be gathered at the scene of the accident and it is usually best to do this straight away, as returning to the scene later on could mean that things have been moved and evidence could have been lost. It is a good idea to take photographs of the injuries caused by the accident whilst waiting for help to arrive, as this will help your case in a claim for an accident in a warehouse. Taking photographs of the area where the accident happened will also help to clarify the cause of the injury and could prove valuable in a personal injury claim. It is also advisable to make a few notes detailing the address of the building where the accident happened, the details of the accident itself, the injuries you received and the steps taken following the incident.
