If you have been in a forklift truck accident and you want to make a claim for compensation use Michael Lewin Solicitors in London; we can get you the best possible compensation you deserve as swiftly as possible.

Mrs T from Nottingham was walking through the workshop at work when she was struck from behind by a forklift truck. As a result of this accident Mrs T suffered an injury that developed into Achilles Tendonitis.

Achilles tendonitis according to medical experts usually only starts to improve after 12-18 months. Quite often anti-inflammatory medication is required to ease the pain and activity and footwear modification are necessary. The mainstay of treatment for Achilles Tendonitis is physiotherapy which can be painful and is also time consuming.

Adequate information training and instruction is required for all workers but this is not a set amount. This will be dependent on the age and competency of the employees; for new processes or young/inexperienced employees the supervision will need to be on a far more frequent basis than for established working procedures. Also training to use a computer can allow mistakes which will not be costly in terms of employee’s physical well-being but mistakes cannot be allowed to happen when younger workers are in charge of welding equipment or large electrically powered blades.

Section 3 requires the employer to ensure that people not employed but who could be affected by his operation are not placed at risk. The general public customers visitors or contractors attending the site might need training or supervision to minimise the risk to their health and safety while on site or relevant personal protective equipment (PPE) along with training on how to use it correctly may need to be provided.
