Forklift truck injury claims
Forklift truck accidents often happen in retail warehouses and building sites, and a number of forklift injuries happen in the workplace every day. Not only are these injuries serious, but they can have devastating consequences for the families of the people hurt. Some of the most common types of forklift injury involve the vehicle overturning or heavy loads being dropped.
Many of these forklift accidents are caused by inadequate training; however there are a number of other factors, such as poor forklift maintenance that contributes to employee injury.
Not only do employers have a duty of care to their staff, but they must also carry out detailed risk assessments surrounding the use of heavy duty machinery. If you have suffered from a forklift injury and you believe your employer is at fault, you may be able to claim for forklift injury compensation.
