Forklift truck accidents can cause serious injuries. Lack of concentration is one of the most common causes of forklift truck accidents. An example of this would be, when a forklift truck driver forgets to look behind before reversing and then collides with a fellow worker.

Accidents can also be caused by poor training, defective equipment or a co-worker's negligence. When this happens an employee who suffers injury may decide to make an accident at work compensation claim.

Can I make a forklift truck injury compensation claim?

By law, all lifting equipment including forklift trucks is required to be of the requisite strength to carry out the jobs for which it is intended, stable and used in accordance within a safe system of work. This means that as well as requiring forklift trucks to be maintained in good working order, all forklift truck drivers should be sufficiently trained to be able to operate the machinery safely.

If you have been injured at work due to a forklift truck accident, you could be entitled to make a forklift truck compensation claim.

  • Careless and dangerous driving or operating
