Be it a construction site, factory or warehouse, if you are required to drive a fork lift truck then you should be fully trained. Fork lift truck accidents are mostly due to human error and inexperience.
In the UK it is the law that any person operating a vehicle such as a fork lift truck must be fully trained, with many employers requesting a certificate or license as proof of experience. Unfortunately many neglect this and as a result fork lift truck accidents are still common throughout a wide range of industries.
If you have been involved in a fork lift truck accident then you may be entitled to make a work accident claim. In order to be successful in your claim it is important to show that the accident was due to the fault of another party or negligence towards sufficient training.
Taking notes and photographs of the scene of the accident can vastly improve the strength of your claim.
