Working in a warehouse is physically demanding and the hours can be long yet the role of the warehouse is crucial to the success of any business. With heavy machinery, high pallets and stock moving to and fro several times a day the amount of possible accidents is very high.

Warehouse accidents in Bury St Edmunds
Given the nature of the activity that happens within a warehouse the accidents which happen can be severe with unimaginable injuries. Training is essential in order for all employees to conduct their job roles efficiently and safely.
Negligence in such an environment from either a colleague or an employer can cause a ripple effect which then results in perhaps more than one person getting injured. In circumstances where the accident was not the fault of the injured party they could put in a claim for some compensation money for their injuries.
Claiming for warehouse accidents in Bury St Edmunds
Although warehouse accidents can be severe and extremely painful there is a side bonus that many warehouses have CCTV. Being able to obtain actual footage of before and after the accident as well as the event itself can help to build a strong portfolio of evidence.
In addition to footage of the accident other evidence that solicitors can use to present a case are photographs. Being able to provide clear photographs which can show the hazard in detail can also prove useful in showing parties later on in the case such as a judge in court.
As well as physical evidence solicitors can also contact any eyewitnesses to the accident in order to get some statements which can further support the version of events which led to the accident.
If you have been involved in an accident in a warehouse whilst at work you could be entitled to some compensation for your injuries. Even if you think you may be partially responsible for what happened you may still be able to make a claim.
