Who can make a claim for a forklift truck accident?

The most dangerous industries to work in are manufacturing and construction which between them caused almost 50% of fatal accidents. Almost 15% of these fatalities were as a result of moving heaving machinery, usually a task performed by workers without adequate safety training.

You will be eligible to claim on for some different factors that caused the injury. First and foremost, the law states all employers must abide by the strict health and safety regulations which are in place and ensure they provide a clean and safe environment for their employees to work. Therefore any employer that does not meet the basic health and safety guidelines are obligated to pay any compensation due, should an accident within the workplace occur.

Employers must ensure that all work equipment is suitable and well maintained for the task at hand and all potentially dangerous machinery parts are guarded appropriately and safely. Safety systems such as automatic cut-off devices and emergency stop features must always be properly installed and functioning correctly.

If you think your accident resulted in a procedure that your employer did not carry out by law, we will be happy to assist you in accident compensation
