Warehouse Accident Claims

Carrs Solicitors offer specialist solicitor representation and over 18 years experience of winning warehouse accident compensation claims which have led to injuries caused by slipping and tripping, falls, falling objects, defective work equipment, forklift trucks, reversing vehicles or straining injuries caused by heavy lifting.

Many of the injuries suffered by road haulage industry drivers occur atloading bays or otherwise whilst dealing with loading or making deliveries to warehouses or logistics hubs/distribution centres.

Many of these workplaces are highly mechanised and usually have well documented safety sytems. In these cases liability can still arise where assessments amnd training has not been updated  and where procedures are departed from often by cstomand practice condonedby management or as a result of negligent fellow workers.    

If you have been injured in a warehouse accident, we can provide free specialist advice 7 days a week about making a no win no fee work accident claim under the appropriate employer's liability insurance policy.

Employer's liability

Employers have a duty to undertake suitable and sufficient risk assessments of their warehouse facilities to provide adequate training, safe plant and equipment to include suitable equipment for working at height.safe systems of work, safe organisation and separation and planning of vehicular and pedestrian taffic routes, employment of competent fellow employees, suitable personal protective equipment and appropriate supervision in view of the many potential hazards within the warehousing and logistics industry. If you have suffered injury while working in a warehouse in circumstances where one or more of these duties have been breached, it may be possible to claim compensation from the company operating the warehouse or employing the person who caused the accident whether or not this is your own employer.

Make a compensation claim

Carrs Solicitors bring many years of experience of winning cases involving warehouse accident claims. We understand these environments well and have won many cases with and without the support of engineering evidence. We operate on a no win no fee basis, meaning that there is nothing to pay if the claim fails and no up front payments  but a relatively modest deducton becomes payable from any damages recovered to contribute towards the costs of the succesful claim. Our clients are therefore never out of pocket.
