Injury solicitors in Cheddar
According to the Health and Safety Executive, forklifts are involved in roughly 24% of workplace transport accidents every year.
It is the duty of an employer to ensure the work site and all employees operating within it are safe. This means providing adequate safety training and equipment to lower the risk of accidents, yet unfortunately, workplace accidents involving forklifts still happen too often.
If you’ve been involved in such an accident and are considering legal action, our injury solicitors Cheddar team can help. Accident Advice Helpline is a trusted, experienced law firm dedicated to the area of personal injury compensation claims, and our lawyers have dealt with many workplace accident claims over our fifteen years in business.
In fact, we’ve become one of the most trusted names in accident claims since launching in 2000, and help award £30 million a year in damages. We may not be able to rectify the physical ramifications of an injury involving heavy machinery, but we’ll do our best to help make things right financially.
Who is at fault?
The Forklift Truck Association states that especially when dealing with forklifts, employers are obligated to provide things such as training and refresher courses, regular safety briefings, frequent site and equipment examinations and more. Their failure to do this can cause nasty accidents that can lead to serious injuries, such as:
- Crushed ribs
- Broken arms or legs
- Skin lacerations
- Accidental dismemberment
Even if the operator is wearing a hard hat, a severe accident can still result in serious and sometimes irreparable brain damage, which can change the life of the victim and those around them.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have dealt with many claims involving workplace machinery and power tools, and many of our claimants have received thousands of pounds in a settlement. If you or a loved one has sustained an injury at work, our injury solicitors Cheddar team will do their best to help put things right.
