There’s a very good reason that people who work in warehouse-type environments need to have a fork lift truck licence if they’re going to use one; they can be very dangerous if operated by somebody who does not know what they’re going. Using a fork lift truck is not like driving a car, not least because there’s the whole added dimension of having to operate the lift function of the vehicle. Accidents can and do happen when people who do have a licence use a fort lift truck, let alone when an individual who has no training and no licence gets behind the wheel. In these cases, it may be possible to get a Stockton-on-Tees law firm involved.
Both drivers and passers-by can be injured when a fork lift truck is poorly operated or not maintained properly. If you’re injured as the result of the negligent use of a fork lift truck, regardless of whether you were operating the vehicle or not, there will be a chance that you might well find yourself in a position where you could be able to take some form of 100% no-win, no-fee* personal injury action against the person or organisation that was responsible for your suffering with the help and assistance of a top-notch Stockton-on-Tees law firm.
