From eligibility claim to reporting the forklift accident to the settlement amount you can get, there can be lots of queries in your mind. It’s time to get answers to all of them. Let’s have a look at some of the most commonly asked questions about forklift truck accident claims.
A forklift accident claim refers to the compensation money that is given to the victim of an accident of a forklift truck. This settlement amount compensates you for all the out-of-pocket expenses as well as for the pains and sufferings caused by the accident.
Forklift injury claims have the same eligibility criteria as other types of accident at work claims. You have to prove that the accident was not caused by your fault.
For instance, you were not properly trained to drive a forklift. You knew this fact and reported your management about it. But they still asked you to drive that forklift which resulted in an accident causing injuries. In this case, you are eligible to claim compensation because the fault wasn’t yours.

Odds are that you may not be the driver of the forklift that resulted in the accident. But that doesn’t mean you can’t claim a settlement amount.
