£4,000 compensation for employee injured in a forklift truck accident at work

Accident at Work

Mr B. was injured at work when a forklift truck accidentally pushed some pallets into him. He received compensation for his injuries and loss of earnings from his employer.

What we did

Our solicitor took on the case and pursued a claim against the employer who had failed to enforce reasonable safety precautions to reduce the risk of such an accident occurring.

Background

Our client was in the storeroom when a fellow worker driving a forklift truck loaded with goods hit a stack of pallets next to our client and continued to shunt them forward into him. The stack of pallets were above head height. The driver of the forklift truck only stopped his machine when shouted at by a manager who happened to see the accident and luckily intervened before more serious damage was done.

All employers must, by law, have employer’s liability insurance to cover the cost of compensating employees who are injured at work in situations like these. This is important so employees like Mr B. can receive fair compensation without causing financial hardship to their employer.

Settlement

Our client received £4,000 in compensation for the injuries and loss of income that resulted from the accident.
