What to do if you’ve been injured in a forklift accident

If you’ve been injured in a forklift accident, your first step is to contact a firm with professional and reputable forklift accident lawyers, like Garling & Co. If you’re suffering from injury/ies as a result of your forklift accident, you may be entitled to seek workers’ compensation.

Seek legal advice from the forklift accident lawyers at Garling & Co at the earliest possible instance if you’ve been injured in a forklift accident. We’ll be able to help you understand your rights and entitlements and understand whether or not you have a liable forklift accident case.

Emma, Rebecca and the team at Garling and Co have worked diligently throughout my workers compensation claim. The level of professionalism, support and communication has been faultless. Of particular... note has been the sensitivity displayed to me throughout the lengthy process. Worker’s compensation claims are complex and not easy to navigate, particularly when you are unwell. I do not hesitate to recommend Garling and Co to help you find a way through this otherwise unfathomable system.read more

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Are there time limits or restrictions on when I can make a forklift accident claim?

For forklift accident claims, there are strict time limits for lodging your claim. The time limit varies depending on your particular circumstances and you need to obtain advise from an experienced lawyer in this area. So, if you’ve been injured in a forklift accident, it’s vital that you seek legal advice as soon as possible so the opportunity to make your forklift accident claim doesn’t slip away.

2. What can I claim forklift accident compensation for?

When it comes to forklift accident compensation claims, each situation is different. However, there are a certain list of things that you may be able to claim for, including:

  • Loss of past and future earnings
  • Permanent impairment compensation
  • Return to work services
  • Medical, hospital and rehabilitation services
  • Travel and home nursing expenses
  • Psychological suffering
  • Loss of superannuation
  • General damages
  • Interest

3. Who will pay the forklift injury compensation?

Should your claim be successful, your forklift injury compensation will be paid for by your employer’s workplace compensation insurance (if the injury occurred in the workplace) or by the CTP insurer if the Motor Accident Injuries Act applies.

4. How much does it cost to make a forklift accident claim?

At Garling & Co, our forklift accident lawyers operate on a No Win No Fee basis, so if we don’t win your forklift accident claims case, then you won’t pay us a cent!

It’s important to make sure you understand how your lawyer will charge legal costs, how much you will be charged and when the legal costs are payable. If you sign a costs agreement without first understanding the terms, you may end up with a very large legal bill for your forklift accident claim that you weren’t expecting!
