Due to the fast paced and manual nature of most warehouse work, if a worker is injured it can often be quite serious, and in many cases accidents have caused long term disability, amputations and sometimes, fatalities.
If a warehouse accident was the result of negligence in the work place, either by a lack of health and safety or training, you may be entitled to compensation. Making a claim for an accident at work is particularly invaluable when facing long term complications as a result of your injury.
Employers must, by law, ensure the adequate safety of their employees by providing the proper training, health and safety procedures and safety protection.
If your employer has been negligent and you have suffered an injury because of it you’re entitled to claim for compensation. They’re also legally required to have employers’ liability insurance, which is who pays out for compensation.
At Hattons Solicitors we can give you legal advice and answer any questions you might have. We would always advise you to seek medical attention after an accident and record it in your accident log book at work.
You can help strengthen your case by taking photographs of the injuries, getting the names and contact details of any witnesses and making a note of how the injury is affecting your daily lifestyle and employment.
