Forklift Truck Accident Compensation

If you have been injured in a forklift truck accident you could be entitled to compensation.

Corries Solicitors have been helping clients receive compensation for injuries for over 25 years.

Can I claim for a forklift truck accident?

Forklift trucks are commonly used in many workplaces. Common examples of accidents involving forklift trucks include:

  • Collisions with other workers.
  • Driving over someone’s foot.
  • Being hit or crushed by heavy objects that haven’t been stacked properly on the forklift truck.
  • Unsafe driving which leads to the forklift toppling over.


The size and weight of a forklift truck, mean that injuries can be very serious. Fractures, head injuries and crushed feet are commonly caused by forklift truck accidents.

If you have been injured in any of the above scenarios call Corries Solicitors on 01904 527430 or contact us online

What are my employer's responsibilities?

Employers must look after the health and safety of their staff.  They must ensure that forklift drivers are fully trained before being allowed to drive on the warehouse floor or building site. They are required to:

  • Provide driver training
  • Safety training for all workers and update that training.
  • Provide safety hats and boots.
  • Ensure forklifts are maintained.

How much compensation can I expect?

Each individual claim is different, and compensation is calculated on a number of different factors :

• The seriousness of the injuries.
• The loss of earnings.
• Additional travelling expenses or medical expenses

Is there a time limit to making a claim?

You need to make your claim within three years from the date of the accident.
