Warehouses are usually very large buildings storing lots of equipment, high shelving and heavy goods, and warehouse workers are an integral part of the retail chain for most businesses. With so much going on in such large-scale premises, working in a warehouse can put employees at risk of injury.
Common warehouse accidents include:
Being injured in a warehouse accident can have long-lasting effects on your physical and mental health.
Depending on how serious your injury is, you might need to take time off work to recover. This could be just a few weeks, but in the worst cases you might be unable to work for months or even years. Loss of earnings whilst you’re not working can add to your worries and make it more difficult to recover. In these circumstances, it can be helpful to claim for compensation to relieve some of the stress and financial burden.
If you’ve had an accident in the last three years when working in a warehouse, and can prove it wasn’t your fault, PHC Law can help you claim for compensation.
In the UK, all employers are required by law to have specialist employer’s liability insurance for incidents just like this. It’s likely that your compensation will be covered by this insurance. You wont be claiming from an individual.
Your solicitor can give you more information about your case.
