Have you been involved in a warehouse accident which wasn’t your fault? If you contact Ison Harrison solicitors today you might be able to seek financial compensation for your injuries.
Warehouse environments can be hazardous because they can be large spaces with materials stored in various different ways, and with many different machines and operatives working in them. Because of the nature of their size, this often means that health and safety issues can go undetected, leading to a higher likelihood of warehouse accidents.
Similar to factory accidents, construction accidents and defective equipment accidents, the risks associated with warehouse operations are high, and should be subject to a thorough risk assessment, otherwise an employer could be liable for failing to fulfil their health and safety duties. If you think this might have happened to you, you can contact our specialist personal injury solicitors at Ison Harrison to work out a route towards suitable compensation.

Common causes of warehouse accidents

- Falling from a height
- Being struck by an object falling from a height
- Manual handling injury
- Being struck by a moving vehicle, ie. fork truck
- Handling or exposure to hazardous materials
- Slips and trips
