Forklift Accident Claims

Did you know that the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that around a quarter of all workplace transport accidents involve forklift trucks?

Without the right training, equipment or working environment, forklifts can result in some of the most serious injuries.

Many of these accidents are the result of poor employer practices. Despite employers having a legal obligation to take all reasonable steps to provide a safe working environment, too many continue to cut corners and dismiss vital health and safety measures as ‘red tape’.

If you have been injured when you or a colleague has been using a forklift, Thompsons’ accident at work specialists – trusted by thousands of people every year because of their expertise – can help.

I had no idea who to turn to, but then my union rep helped tremendously. He introduced me to Thompsons so I could take advantage of the free legal help scheme.
