Forklift truck driver compensated after injury at work

A forklift truck driver has successfully pursued a personal injury compensation claim after he was injured in an accident at work.

Our client was driving the forklift truck when it began to accelerate of its own accord. The emergency stop button failed to work and our client was thrown out of the truck.

He suffered a soft tissue injury to his left ankle and scraping to his left leg, knee and hip. The physical and psychological effects of the accident meant our client was unable to return to work.

Following the accident, the man contacted our specialist personal injury solicitors who investigated a compensation claim on his behalf. Our client's employer agreed that he was the victim of faulty equipment and compensation was secured on his behalf.
