There are many inherent dangers present when working in a factory, with forklift trucks being chief amongst them.
In fact, statistics from the Health and Safety Executive reveal that forklift trucks account for 24 per cent of workplace accidents involving transport. If you’ve been in a forklift truck accident, you may be entitled to claim financial compensation if there is evidence that negligence played a part.
Your employer is legally responsible for ensuring that all the machinery and tools on site are safe for use, and that operators have had the adequate safety training to mitigate the risk of accidents. If you believe your employer has neglected this right, and your accident has occurred as a result, they may be made responsible for paying hundreds if not thousands of pounds in a payout.

If you have been hurt at work whilst operating a forklift truck, or even if someone using one has caused you an injury, we can help you make a claim and win the money you rightfully deserve.
