Warehouse Accident Claims
Have you been injured in a warehouse accident? If yes, you may be entitled to make warehouse accident claims. Warehouse accidents can occur due to many reasons. Some of the main causes include:
- Lack of safety measures
- Inadequate personal protective equipment
- Falling objects
- Incorrect use of equipment
- Heavy lifting and manual handling
Making A Successful Claim
As with any type of personal injury or work accident claim, your solicitor has to prove that someone else’s negligence was the cause of the accident in which you sustained injuries.
By law, your employer has a legal duty to ensure that the workplace is safe for the workers. Warehouses generally make use of machinery and other types of work equipment and it is essential that workers are given adequate training on how to operate them.
Providing proper training and adequate supervision to workers will ensure that they perform their tasks safely. In addition, it is also essential that the employer provides suitable protective gear to the workers.
If your employer has failed to do all this, they are breaching health and safety regulations. This means if you get involved in an accident at work that was caused by the negligence of your employer, you may be entitled to obtain compensation.
In order to make a successful claim, you must provide your solicitor with as much medical evidence as possible regarding your injury. For this, you must ensure that you have visited a G.P or a hospital and had your injury examined by a medical professional.
You must also provide photographs of your injury if your injury is visible. If there are ongoing problems related to your injury, you must inform your solicitor about it and how it is affecting your day-to-day life or your employment.
Providing your solicitor with details of witnesses can be extremely helpful for your case as your solicitor will be able to obtain their statement and prove that the accident was not your fault, but the fault of another person.
Lastly, you must ensure that you have a record of the exact date and time the accident occurred and the circumstances surrounding the accident. If you have suffered financial losses such as out of pocket expenses, then you must provide your solicitor with receipts and invoices.
