Vehicle accident at work legal experts
Many people work with vehicles, from HGV drivers, to workers who drive, or work in the vicinity of, forklift trucks. Employers have a duty of care to ensure that you are safe in your work environment but unfortunately accidents with vehicles at work do happen and employees can get injured.
If you have been injured as a result of a vehicle accident at work, whether another road user was to blame, another employee was to blame or the vehicle was defective, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact us online today or call us on 0800 083 5045 to speak to one of our experts.
What are No Win No Fee agreements?
The vast majority of Accident Advice Helpline cases involving vehicle accidents at work are dealt with under the terms of a No Win No Fee agreement. What this means is, if you were to lose your case, you would not have to pay anything so there is absolutely no financial risk to you. For more information about No Win No Fee agreements, click here.
What type of injuries can be caused in a vehicle accident at work?
There are many types of injuries which can be caused as a result of a vehicle accident at work, from mild whiplash injuries to quite serious injuries. Our specialist solicitors have a vast amount of experience of all types of vehicle accidents at work from those who are crushed by a forklift truck, to drivers of company vehicles who have sustained whiplash injuries due to another vehicle crashing into them.
What if the vehicle accident at work happened abroad?
If you were working abroad when your vehicle accident happened, you may still be able to seek compensation. It is not always straightforward to seek compensation for accidents abroad which is why if your accident happened overseas, you should choose solicitors who have expertise in travel litigation.
How much compensation do you get if you are injured in a vehicle accident at work?
It is impossible to say how much compensation you are entitled to if you have been injured as a result of a vehicle accident at work. It would very much depend on the level of your injuries and the losses you have incurred.
All cases are different. Our specialist solicitors have represented a vast number of workers who have sustained injuries from vehicle accidents at work; from workers who have sustained whiplash injuries to representing families who have lost a loved one due to a vehicle accident at work. The amount of compensation therefore varies depending on the circumstances.
Our expert solicitors will be able to provide you with guidance once they have taken full details of your case. Read our FAQs for more information on what you can claim for.
