    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Personal injury lawyer in Lancing


    The personal injury lawyer Lancing workers often come to when they need help with launching a compensation claim for an injury they’ve sustained in the workplace is Accident Advice Helpline.

    The benefits of having forklift trucks around

    Forklift trucks are a great help in the workplace. They minimise the amount of manual handling that has to be done and they speed up the process of moving heavy equipment about the premises. They come with high reaches too, so they’re very useful for stacking equipment away on pallets on high racking and prevent people from having to go up and down steps carrying heavy loads.

    The downside of having forklift trucks around

    But forklift trucks can create problems too; or rather their drivers can. The problem is that forklift trucks scurry around in an environment where workers are too. And if there is a collision between a forklift truck and a worker, it’s fairly obvious whose going to come off worst – the worker of course.

    Accident Advice Helpline is the personal injury lawyer lancing workers often fall back on

    If you’ve been injured in an incident involving a forklift truck, the blame of which is down to a third party, then you’re entitled to claim compensation, and the personal injury lawyer Lancing workers often fall back on to help them to raise their claims, is Accident Advice Helpline.

    Forklift truck health and safety

    Employers who use forklift trucks on the premises have a duty of care to their employees to ensure that safety practices are observed. The forklifts must always be serviced and maintained properly, and they must have audible motion warning alarms, and flashing beacons too. The other thing is that there must be clear notices put up at strategic points around the premises, and any entrance points to the premises, warning that forklift trucks are in operation. But even so, accidents can still happen.

    Claim validation

    If you’ve been involved in an accident in the workplace and have sustained an injury through no fault of your own, you may well be entitled to raise a ‘no win, no fee’ personal injury claim, but before doing so, you should just reflect on these 4 important points.

    • The blame for the incident/injury must ultimately rest with your employer, bearing in mind that your employer is also responsible for employing and training properly qualified forklift drivers.
    • The nature and severity of your injury must warrant the raising of a claim.
    • Medical proof of your injury will be required.
    • The injury must have happened within the past three years
