    Forklift accidents

    Have you been injured following a forklift accident? Forklift accidents tend to happen to those who are around a forklift and not necessarily driving. Forklifts are not always given the respect they deserve and a casual attitude by the driver or your employer may encourage reckless driving and a blind eye to carelessness.

    If you have been hurt after a forklift was driven into you or you were struck, it may be due to the forklift being driven too fast or the driver not taking precautions when coming round corners. You may have been hurt after a forklift fell on you due to bad flooring or a badly loaded forklift which became unbalanced.

    If you have been injured in any way after a forklift accident, as a driver, visitor or other employee you may be able to make a claim for compensation. If you have been hurt due a faulty or damaged forklift then you may consider making an injury claim in Tameside.

    Why claim?

    Making a claim for compensation can prevent future accidents from happening as your employer will be forced to take a more serious attitude to Health and Safety. Health and Safety laws are there to protect employees and prevent accidents. Compensation can also help cover lost earnings from time taken off work when hurt and it can help with the emotional and physical distress you may have suffered.
