Warehouse Accidents & Injury Claims
Across Britain, there are hundreds of thousands of people employed to work in warehouses and when accidents happen you can speak to PHC Law about warehouse accident claims and see what you’re entitled too.
Warehouse workers are a vital part of the chain in many businesses and highly responsible for the production of incoming, outgoing and storage of products.
Types of warehouse accidents
Slips, trips or fall accidents
These often occur when products, liquid or boxes have not been correctly put away or stored.
Heavy falling objects
Falling objects are also one of the most common warehouse accidents resulting in personal injury. A falling or moving object is another leading cause of personal injury amongst warehouse workers.
Forklift truck accidents
With many forklift trucks operating in many warehouses, workers may suffer severe injuries in accidents involving heavy machines. Everyone has seen the youtube video of the forklift destroying the warehouse. Forklifts are heavy as to are the items they move, this can cause very bad accidents if you’re involved.
Manual handling accidents
Back injuries, hand and foot injuries tend to be the most common of injuries and can often cause the worker re recurring pain and discomfort for months or even years after the incident happened.
If you have been involved in a warehouse accident, you may be entitled to claim accident at work compensation.
How to make a successful warehouse accidents compensation claim
As with any accident at work claim, your solicitor has to prove that the person or your employer responsible for your injury has been negligible.
By law, your employer is legally obliged to ensure your workplace is safe to work in. Most warehouse workers tend to operate machinery or some other form of equipment and the correct training must have been provided before carrying out the job in hand.
Your employer will have also needed to have provided you with the correct safety gear and equipment to carry out your job. If they have not done so, they are breaking the law.
Many claimants who we deal with have suffered a personal injury through not having received the proper training, safety wear or equipment they should have been provided.
To make a successful warehouse accidents claim, your solicitor will want to obtain as much medical evidence as they can concerning your injury.
