Forklift trucks present hazards in any workplaces, and here at Accident Advice Helpline we’ve handled many hundreds of claim for injuries that have been caused by a collision with a forklift truck.
Forklift trucks are hazardous pieces of equipment
Health and safety has come quite a long way in recent years. Forklift trucks now have orange flashing lights, and are fitted with audible warning devices that are activated when in motion, whether they’re going backwards or forwards. But accidents still happen.
Sometimes it may be the fault of the driver, driving too fast; sometimes it may be that the audible warning isn’t heard above a noisy public address system; or sometimes the load the forklift is carrying can shift and fall on somebody, causing serious injury.
No win no fee* in East Molesey claims with Accident Advice Helpline
Any company operating forklift trucks on its premises has a duty of care to its employees to ensure they’re kept safe. Only qualified forklift truck drivers should be employed, and allowed to move the vehicles. Vehicles must undergo regular safety checks and be properly maintained. Signs should be clearly displayed warning that forklift trucks are in operation in the area.
But even when all of these factors are in operation, accidents still happen, and if you’ve been injured through a forklift truck related incident through no fault of your own, you may be eligible to claim financial compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline with forklift incident expertise, can help.
