Injuries in warehouse jobs may be quite common, but your employer has a duty of care to prevent injury and accident in the workplace.

Injured in a warehouse accident?

If you’ve been injured during your work in a warehouse, you may be able to claim compensation. Injuries are typically caused by:

  • liquid spills and wet surfaces
  • forklift truck accidents
  • obstacles and tripping hazards
  • defective machinery or tools
  • lifting heavy loads
  • falls from height
  • lack of proper breaks
  • improper health and safety training
  • inadequate protective equipment
  • falling objects

Why make a warehouse accident claim?

Thankfully, most incidents are not fatal, and sufferers will make a full recovery. But if the accident could have been prevented, then your employer could have been negligent in their duty of care to you.

If you have been injured and need time off work to recover, making a claim can allow you the time you need to recover, without the worry over financial pressures.

How can First4Lawyers help?

Our accident at work specialists know the ins and outs of making claims like these. They will put together a case to help you achieve maximum compensation.  We also offer a No Win No Fee* service.

About No Win No Fee

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Where we offer No Win No Fee services typically customers pay 25% of the amount recovered by our solicitors, although this will be subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be less than this but it will never be more. Success fees are common practice and they were introduced when the law changed in April 2013.

How much compensation will I receive for a warehouse injury claim?

That very much depends on your injury and how severe it is. Our compensation calculator gives an idea of the amounts you could be awarded, but a chat with our legal advisors will give you advice tailored to your individual circumstances.

Is there a time limit for making a claim?

Usually a period of three years from the date of the accident.

I think I have a claim, what do I do next?

Make sure you have written down details of the accident and reported it in the works accident book. Keep your own records too, including dates, circumstances and any photographic evidence.

You will need to seek medical attention for treatment and to make sure the injuries are noted in your medical records.

Then just get in touch with us for a free consultation. We’ll ask you about your situation and advise you of your options.
