Forklift truck accidents: who pays compensation?

Who actually pays the compensation for forklift truck accidents?

Generally speaking, your employer, or more often than not, their insurance.

You don’t normally pursue the individual responsible for the accident. In law, your employer is vicariously liable for the negligence of their employees. This means the employer is the one liable when the fault lies with an employee.

In essence, the fault of the employee is the fault of the employer.

Is it OK to sue for forklift truck accidents?

Of course it’s OK to claim compensation for forklift truck accidents.

Try not to think of it as a personal thing against your employer. Your employer is responsible for having special insurance to cover them for this kind of accident. When you claim compensation for a workplace accident, all you’re doing is claiming from the insurance that is already in place to cover you.

If your house is burgled, you claim from your insurance. If your house falls down, you claim from your insurance. If you’re injured at work through no fault of your own, you claim from your employer’s insurance.
