Forklift injury claim FAQs

How much will a forklift injury claim cost me?

We understand how devastating a workplace injury can be, not only related to your physical and mental health, but to your financial circumstances as well. Being unable to work for an extended period of time, and covering everyday living expenses creates a challenge for most. Our team of workplace injury solicitors recognises these difficulties, which is why we work on a no win, no fee arrangement. With a no win no fee structure, you do not pay any funds out of pocket to start your claim for compensation. Only once your forklift injury claim is successful do you pay for the legal services provided.

Who can make a forklift injury at work claim?

Anyone who has suffered a forklift injury, which was in some part caused by the negligence of another party, has the opportunity to bring a claim. There are, however, a few things to keep in mind. Time Restrictions on Claims – First, the injury must have taken place in the last three years for a claim for compensation to be pursued, based on the date the injury occurred. This time restriction applies to those age 18 or older. Make a Claim on Behalf of Loved One – If a loved one has experienced a serious injury and has a claim for compensation, you may start the process on their behalf. When your loved one is under the age of 18, the three-year time restriction does not start until their 18th birthday. Exceptions to the Rules – There may be some exceptions to the three-year rule for serious injury claims, so it is important to get in touch with us if you believe you have a claim for compensation. The sooner you reach out to our solicitors, the quicker we can start working on the serious injury claim for you or your loved one.

Does it matter which work accident solicitor I choose?

If you have suffered a forklift injury at work, it is very important that you talk to an experienced, specialist law firm like Fletchers. You should consider taking the time to research a solicitor to ensure that they have the relevant experience. Depending on your situation, charities and other similar organisations can provide you with a directory of approved solicitors and a list of questions to ask your solicitor to ensure he/she has sufficient experience / knowledge of your injury or situation.

Can I change solicitor?

It is your right, and yours alone, to decide who represents you in a claim for compensation. Using a firm without the necessary specialist expertise can prove a costly mistake. So, if you are at all unsure about the quality of legal advice you are receiving from another firm, you are perfectly within your rights to seek a second opinion and switch solicitor if you so choose.
