Fork Lift Truck Work Place Accidents

Have you been injured because of a Fork Lift Truck? If so, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Many workers suffer very serious injuries in accidents involving fork lift trucks. And this includes "stacker trucks” and "stand up trucks” and a lot of these accidents are caused by someone other than the driver - you could be working in the vicinity and still be hurt.  And, let's not forget, members of the public can be at risk of injury whilst visiting workplaces where such trucks are being used.

Fork lift trucks can crash into each other or into you, topple over whilst your driving one or a load can fall off and hit you. Some times they can be driven too fast or recklessly. There are lots of ways in which a fork lift truck can injure you at work.

Every one who uses a fork lift truck must be properly trained, be issued with good protective clothing and equipment and safe walking and driving routes must be provided by employers. Unfortunately this is often ignored by employers and their workers are put at risk and are injured.

Too many people suffer injuries at work caused by fork lift trucks and these injuries can cause death , or be very serious often requiring  surgery and a long time off work recovering  (and sometimes your employer may refuse to pay you wages while you're off -even though the accident was their fault!).

If you have been injured as a result of a fork lift truck I can help you claim the compensation you deserve.

I will advise you how much compensation you can claim for your pain and suffering and I will explain in simple terms every step of how to make an accident at work compensation claim. You can also claim for past and future loss of earnings and loss of pension benefits. I can also help you to claim:

From first contact to the last, everyone has been very professional and reassuring through what has been an emotional and stressful time for us and without the help of your company it would have been much more difficult for me and my husband.

I was very impressed with your firm at the outset when I first called in November 2009 after my uncles death. All staff from the receptionist and secretary through to the Partners were professional, friendly and helpful and provided the best response out of the 3 Bury firms I called.

Lorraine, I would just like to say "thank you very much" for all your hard work and assistance in the letting of the above property. The negotiations were somewhat protracted, due to a breakdown on my client's side, and I feel that your persistence and hard work led to the eventual lease completion. I look forward to working with you in the near future. Kind regards, Neil Higson, for and on behalf of Nolan Redshaw Ltd
