Compensation for an accident on a cherry picker

Although many of us work with our feet fixed firmly on the ground, from time to time you may be required to do a job which is located a certain height above ground, and as such you could find yourself in a slightly risky situation. Cherry pickers are a popular vehicle used when people have to work at a certain height, for example if you are working on a roof, a construction site or perhaps even cleaning a window, and right around the UK they do a very job of enabling us to do these tasks with ease.

Unfortunately from time to time when these machines are not correctly maintained or operated, potential problems can arise and these can lead to us developing a range of rather serious injuries. If you feel that you have been involved in an accident with a cherry picker through the negligence of another person, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.

What is a cherry picker?

A cherry picker is an item of machinery which consists of a base and then a large arm which can extend to reach areas which are out of normal reach. These arms are generally quite substantial and usually very long, they can be used to scale buildings with several storeys and can be extended and retracted through a hydraulic arm. They are an incredibly popular item of equipment used in the construction industry.

Where could I be injured while using a cherry picker?

If you have been the victim of negligence while using a cherry picker then there are a number of situations where a compensation claim could be considered and these include:

  • Claims for poor use of a cherry picker
  • Claims for injuries caused by a faulty cherry picker
  • Claims for errors made by a negligence cherry picker operator
  • Claims for the operational failure of a cherry picker
