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!).
