Making a warehouse accident claim
As an employer with a warehouse, strict health and safety guidelines must be followed along with a responsibility to keep workers safe from harm.
In 2018/19 the Health and Safety Executive reported that slips, trips and falls accounted for the most common non-fatal injuries, not surprising when considering how fast-paced warehouse work can be with discarded boxes and packaging lying around potentially paving the way for a trip to A&E. If this is your case, trip hazards are a breach of health and safety regulation so there is a potential claim here for you!

Physical effects of a warehouse accident
Factory accidents can cause serious injuries. Some people walk away with only minor bruises, whilst other people have severe injuries that have lasting physical effects for the rest of their lives. The injuries sustained are generally musculoskeletal injuries.
Other type of injuries that are caused by factory accidents are repetitive stress injuries, slip and fall injuries, machine related injuries, falling objects, exposure to harmful chemicals, burns and moving vehicle accidents.
When these injuries occur as a result of someone else’s negligence, victims have a right to seek compensation.
In addition to a serious physical injury, some factory workers suffer from psychological stress too.
During the healing process – the duration of which fluctuates from person to person, depending on injuries and personal circumstances – some people notice signs of increased stress. One such condition often cited being Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (or PTSD).
Elsewhere, anxiety, depression, anguish, fearfulness, issues with sleep and reoccurring nightmares about the crash can play out.

Frequently asked Questions
Why should I make a warehouse accident claim?
If you have been injured due to another’s negligence, then it is your right to claim compensation. The compensation could help pay for any medical costs, loss of earning and any other costs caused by the accident. If your employer has failed to make the environment safe, then making a claim can lessen the chance of this happening to someone else.
If I claim against my employer, will I risk losing my job?
There is a legal safeguard in place for unfair dismissal, and if you claim against your current employer, the compensation pay-out is the responsibility of said insurance policy provider, not your employer. So, if your employer does choose to dismiss you, they must be able to justify their reasons about your claim.
