Forklift track accident compensation claim FAQS
I’ve been involved in a forklift truck accident at work. How do I know if I can claim compensation?
Forklift accidents account for 25 per cent of all workplace transit injuries in the UK. If you have been involved in such an accident, you could well be within your rights to claim compensation. You must be in no way at fault in the accident, and should be able to demonstrate that the negligence of another party caused it to occur.
This negligence could be lack of training or supervision from your employer, faulty suspension in the truck, or improperly stacked items. If you can prove that someone else’s negligence caused your accident, you could be within your rights to make a claim.
