Whether it’s an injury from lifting or storing equipment, using machinery, falling equipment or any other work-related problem, if you haven’t been provided with the appropriate safety equipment or training then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. This claim could cover any injury expenses that you incur in addition to any loss of income that you may receive from the inability to work. 

What type of accident can occur in a warehouse?

When it comes to a warehouse environment there are a number of common accidents which can occur and these include:

  • Injuries from poorly stacked equipment, this can include items which may fall from a height and crush or injure an individual
  • Back and neck injuries which may result from poor techniques involved in lifting, pushing, pulling or moving items
  • Falls from a height if you are working on an elevated platform
  • Injuries involving transportation machinery including any injuries which you may incur through a lack of proper training
  • Injuries involving operating machinery

Who can I claim against?

When it comes to making a claim for compensation there are a number of people who you could choose to make a claim against, but most commonly if the accident occurs in a warehouse it will be your employer who you may look to hold responsible. If you are working in a warehouse environment it’s crucial that you have received all the appropriate training, including training on how to operate machinery, if you haven’t received this training then you could be eligible to make a claim.

In addition, warehouses are usually governed by strict health and safety operating procedures. If you feel that your warehouse has not been correctly governed by these procedures and you have been injured as a result of negligence in this area then you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim.
