    How common are Warehouse Accident Claims?

    In November 2020, the UK Government released figures which show that 111 workers were fatally injured at work during 2019/20. Over 25% of these fatalities were in the manufacturing and storage sectors, which means warehouse and factory accidents are only behind construction sector as the most dangerous in the UK. Read the report here.

    In addition to these fatal accidents at work, 693,000 workers sustained non-fatal injuries with 168,000 requiring more than 7 days off work to recover, according to self-reports from the Labour Force Survey in 2019/20.

    Types of Warehouse Accident Claims

    The most common non-fatal work related accident reported under RIDDOR in 2019/20 were slip and trip related, with lifting, handling and carrying injuries close behind.

    If you have been injured in a non-fault accident at work then you may be entitled to make a claim against your employer for compensation. If you are unable to work as a result, it is vital that you instruct proactive solicitors who can help you get the compensation that you deserve.

    Am I able to claim compensation for a warehouse accident?

    You may be entitled to claim compensation if you have been injured as a result of health and safety procedures not being followed correctly or if your warehouse accident made an existing injury or condition worse that your employer was previously aware of.

    Your employer has a legal duty to ensure you are safe at work and have a responsibility to:

    • Make sure you are properly trained in how to do your job, which means providing you with sufficient training in the machinery you use, manual handling and Health & Safety
    • Provide you with suitable personal protective equipment (PPE)
    • Undertake risk assessments before you carry out tasks
    • Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety
    • Provide safe working systems

    How long do I have to make my warehouse accident claim?

    Claims for personal injury have a 3 year period from the date of the accident in which they can be made.

    We suggest if you have been injured in a warehouse accident and would like to make a claim for compensation to contact the expert solicitors at Nigel Askew Solicitors today. Every work related accident claim is different and has its own set of circumstances so we always recommend you seek legal advice as soon as possible, to avoid your claim falling outside this deadline.

    How much compensation can I expect for my accident at work claim?

    Every warehouse accident claim is different and the amount of compensation that you can expect to receive depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries, your rate of recovery, whether you have been unable to work and lost earnings as a result of the accident and the cost of any long term medical treatment which may be required.
