What Types of Warehouse Injuries Can I Claim For?
Warehouse functions often involve a large amount of manual lifting and handling. Employees should be trained on how to perform manual handling, while the equipment should also be provided if necessary. All employers are legally obliged to provide a safe work environment. This is called a duty of care and states that employers must, as much as possible, ensure the health, safety and welfare of their staff. If an employer fails to comply with these measures, he or she has failed to fulfil their duty of care. A staff member shall be prejudiced in consequence of this neglect, and as a result, there will be grounds for a warehouse accident claim.
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you could claim compensation for pain & a loss of finances you have unjustly suffered. Employers have a legal obligation to protect their employees at work. This is called a duty of care, which is to provide local security at work, a safer work procedure, professional staff, and appropriate materials, equipment, training and supervision.
However, if an employer fails to implement these measures to reduce risk, he or she will be unable to meet their duty of care. Any employee injured as a result of this failure is considered a victim of personal injury, which means he or she has suffered harm due to the negligence of another party. Therefore, the injured staff member is legally entitled to claim compensation for damages.
