About forklift truck accidents

Forklift trucks are used in a variety of industries, often in close proximity to other vehicles and workers. If these vehicles aren’t driven, maintained or handled correctly, accidents can happen. Incidents can include any of the following:

  • A load falling off a forklift truck
  • Collisions with another vehicle
  • Hitting a person while driving a forklift truck
  • Toppling over in the truck after driving over an uneven surface
  • Hitting racking, which causes items to fall off
  • Driving carelessly or recklessly

Regardless of how you have been injured, if the accident was not your fault, you are entitled to compensation.

Who is responsible?

Most accidents can be attributed to improper training, poor workplace layout or a lack of appropriate machinery maintenance. Such accidents are most often due to the negligence of a third party, such as a supervisor or colleague, or a lack of appropriate health and safety measures in the workplace.

Employers have insurance in place to cover claims made against them, making it possible for you to make a claim without any concerns regarding company finances or future relations with your employer.
