When you’re on the look-out for an injury claim lawyer in Cleveland, don’t overlook us here at Accident Advice Helpline. As one of the foremost compensation claim solicitors here in the UK you need to put us on your shortlist.
Injuries caused by on-site vehicles in the workplace
One of the biggest causes of accidents in the workplace is collisions with onsite vehicles. Sometimes the vehicles involved may be delivering or collecting things from site and other times the vehicles involved are things like forklift trucks and pallet trucks which are owned by the site. Injuries that come about when pedestrian personnel are struck by these types of vehicles can be very serious and are sometimes fatal.
It always pays to segregate workers and on-site vehicles as much as possible. Forklift trucks should operate within lanes painted on the factory floor and workers on foot should be prohibited from entering them. Visiting lorry drivers should be given a site induction before being allowed on site so they are made aware of the routes to stick to, and any potential accident ”black spots” to look out for.
Accident Advice Helpline – your lawyer in Cleveland
If you’ve been injured by an on-site vehicle at work through no fault of your own then you should be compensated and if you appoint Accident Advice Helpline as your lawyer in Cleveland we can help you to secure what you are owed. The first question you might have is how much could that be?
Our 30-second test has been designed to give you an estimate of the amount of compensation you could be awarded based on the answers you give to 4 simple questions. Taking this test costs you nothing and doesn’t tie you in to having to use our services or proceeding with registering a claim if you don’t want to. But bearing in mind the law says that if you’ve been hurt by others, you should be compensated; it makes sense to do so.
The other thing you should bear in mind is that by launching a personal injury claim you will force your employer to make sure the same type of accident and injury doesn’t happen to someone else, so as well as being compensated, your actually working for the greater good of others.
