How Much Compensation Can I Receive For My Warehouse Accident?
Compensation amounts vary hugely, depending on your personal situation and the way in which your injuries have impacted your life. This makes it very difficult to give general advice as to how much you might expect to receive. There are some general principles, however, which can help to be aware of.
Compensation claims are comprised of two main parts. The first, and usually the easiest to calculate, is to compensate you for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries. The follows guidelines set down nationally by the Judicial College, which provides a range of payments that are considered appropriate for any particular injury. These ranges can be very broad, as they are designed to take into account the individual nature of your personal injury.
The second, and often much larger, part of your compensation claim is to compensate you for any costs, expenses or losses associated with your warehouse accident. The aim of compensation is to give you as close as possible to the same situation as you would have ad if your warehouse accident had not occurred. This means that you are able to claim for any loss of earnings if you are unable to work as a result of your warehouse accident, or even for the loss of the earnings you would have been likely to receive if your injuries mean that you are unable to return to your previous work. You may also be entitled to claim for additional medical support, the help of a carer if this has become necessary and even some modifications to your home or vehicle if they are necessary to allow you to resume the life you had previously.
In many cases, the second part of your warehouse accident compensation claim can be substantially larger than the first part. Working with our expert team of warehouse accident claims specialists means that you can be sure that you are claiming everything you are entitled to. If you would like to discuss the amount of compensation you might receive as a result of your warehouse accident, or if you are ready to begin your warehouse accident compensation claim, call us or claim online now.
How Long Will It Take To Receive My Compensation As A Result Of My Warehouse Accident Claim?
It can be difficult to be sure exactly how long a particular warehouse accident compensation case will take, as some take far longer to finish than others. We realise that it is important to finish your case as quickly as possible, to allow you to put your warehouse accident behind you and move on.
At the very fastest, cases can be resolved in just a few months, and some can even take just a matter of weeks. For a case to be settled this quickly, the other side will have accepted liability very quickly, without the need for lengthy investigations and evidence-gathering. They will usually be claims for smaller amounts of money, and so associated with less severe injuries. With less money at stake, the other side is less likely to consider it worth their while to string out the negotiations to encourage you to accept a lower offer.
Complicated personal injury claims include those which involve multiple people who are all partially responsible for what happened, as well as those with very serious injuries. Cases like that will usually take far longer to be resolved than those which are straightforward. If the claim has to be decided in court, the delays can increase further.
What If I Can’t Afford Legal Help With My Warehouse Accident Claim?
We believe that everyone is entitled to the legal help they need to make a warehouse accident compensation claim. The time immediately following your warehouse accident can be difficult, both emotionally and financially, so we don’t believe that you should have to make large, up-front payments or have to put yourself at financial risk to get the compensation you deserve.
Our no win no fee agreements mean that you are able to instruct us to work on your behalf, without making any payments up front. We will only take payment once you have received the compensation payment you are entitled to. If we are unable to get you the compensation you deserve, you won’t owe us a penny. Even more importantly, our fees are set as a percentage of your payment, meaning that you know exactly how much you will need to pay before accepting any offer of compensation and you will always receive the majority of your compensation.
In a very small number of cases, we are unable to offer a no win no fee agreement. In the unlikely event that your warehouse accident claim falls into this category, we will make sure that you understand this straight away, and we will make sure to discuss possible alternative funding options with you to make sure that you have an affordable route to the help you need.

Will I Have To Pay For My Warehouse Accident If I Lose My Claim?
Absolutely not. The most important thing about making a no win no fee warehouse accident compensation claim is that you are not taking any financial risk whatsoever. This is important, otherwise only the very rich would feel able to make personal injury compensation claims, and those who may need the money most would be unable to get the help they need. If we are unable to win your compensation claim on your behalf, you won’t owe a penny.
Is There A Deadline For Me Making A Warehouse Accident Compensation Claim?
Making a warehouse accident compensation claim is something that the courts expect you to do promptly. In most cases, this should be within two years of the date at which you were injured, although this can very occasionally be extended if you were not able to realise that you had been injured at the time at which it happened. We recommend that you do not wait long before beginning your compensation claim, as this does reduce the time available for negotiations. If you are in any doubt at all, contact our personal injury solicitors today to discuss your case.
In a few cases, there might be an advantage to waiting before making your compensation claim following your accident. This is usually the case when it is not clear that you have had all of the symptoms that you will experience or when it is not certain how complete your recovery might be. Talking with our personal injury specialists should still be your first priority, however, as we can then give you the legal advice you need to make the best decisions for you.
How The Warehouse Accident Compensation Claim Process Works
The process of making a warehouse accident compensation claim is the same for almost all types of personal injury.
The first thing to do is to make sure that you have the help of a personal injury claims solicitor. Our team of experienced personal injury claims specialists are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have about your warehouse accident compensation claim. You can call us or claim online and we will call you back at a time convenient to you.
The first thing we, as your solicitors, need to do is notify the other person that you are making a warehouse accident compensation claim against them. We ask them to accept that they were at fault and we give them a deadline by which they must respond.
If the other party refuses to accept liability, we will attempt to prove that you are correct. We will seek out evidence and supporting testimony and we will make the strongest case we can. For accidents at work, it is usually very easy to demonstrate that your employer did not take sufficient steps to protect you.
As soon as liability has been agreed, it is time to decide how much compensation should be paid out. This is agreed through a process of negotiation. Throughout these negotiations, you remain in full control. We will inform you of every offer that is made, and give you our expert opinion as to whether the offer is fair or not, given the exact circumstances surrounding your accident. This means that you can be sure that the offer you accept is reasonable and fair, given your specific injuries and the way in which your injuries have impacted your life.
Almost all personal injury compensation claims are resolved through the above process. In very rare cases, the other party will either not accept that they were at fault, or they will refuse to offer a fair amount of compensation given your injuries. In these situations, we may need to go to court to allow a judge to decide your case. If this happens, we will support you throughout the process.

I Suffered A Warehouse Accident. Can I Claim Compensation?
If you have suffered a warehouse accident, you may be unsure as to whether you are entitled to claim compensation. In most cases, you will be able to make a claim, but there are a few conditions that must be met.
The first essential requirement is that you must have sustained some kind of damage or loss as a result of a warehouse accident that you have experienced. Narrowly avoiding injury can be alarming and worrying, but you are only able to claim compensation for the damage you have actually sustained.
The second aspect to consider is who you believe is to blame for what happened to you. If you want to make a warehouse accident compensation claim, you will need to claim against a person or organisation. You will need to show that they had some kind of responsibility for your welfare. In the case of an accident or injury at work, your employer has this kind of legal responsibility. As a result, you are almost always able to make a compensation claim for accidents that occurred in the workplace.
The other party must also have been able to anticipate what happened to you, if they had thought about it sufficiently. This does not mean that they must have had the idea already, or that they must have known that this would happen. Just that a reasonable person who put some effort into thinking about health and safety matters (and who took the time to research appropriately) would have realised that this was a risk.
Finally, you should think about whether the person responsible for your safety took any steps to look after your wellbeing. Even if they did put some measures in place, you are still able to make a compensation claim if these were not sufficient for the degree of risk or for the circumstances you found yourself in.
If you have suffered a warehouse accident and you would like to discuss the possibility of making a claim, call us or claim online today to arrange your free, no obligation consultation. Our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors are here 24 hours a day to help answer your questions and assist with your claim.
What Steps Should I Take Following My Warehouse Accident?
The most important thing to do after your warehouse accident is to make sure that you are safe from further harm or injury and that you are getting the first aid or medical assistance you require. Once you have made sure that this is the case, there are some steps that you can take, if you feel that this is possible for you, which can help to provide additional evidence to support your warehouse accident compensation claim.
One of the easiest and most important things that you can do following your warehouse accident is to write down exactly what happened. This should include anything relevant in the lead up to your warehouse accident, including anything that might have increased the risk of your warehouse accident. Any details that you remember should be noted down, whether you think that they are relevant or not. This record means that you will have supporting evidence and helps to prevent you forgetting important details that might later be useful to support your compensation claim.
It can also be helpful to make sure that you have the names and contact details of any witnesses to your warehouse accident. You are welcome to ask them to write down everything they remember, but we are also able to do this for you, as long as we know who they are and are able to contact them. Witnesses can provide strong support when you are demonstrating the causes of your warehouse accident.
Photographs or videos of the place where your warehouse accident happened can also be very helpful, especially if you are able to highlight anything that made the area unsafe and made your warehouse accident more likely. Obviously, it is essential that you are careful when trying to obtain pictures and that you don’t put yourself at risk to get them.
Although taking these steps can make it easier to support your warehouse accident compensation claim, none of them are essential and we fully understand if these are not your first priority in the period immediately after your warehouse accident. The biggest thing you can do to help your warehouse accident compensation claim, however, is to call us or claim online. This will allow you to get the expert help you need to support you throughout your warehouse accident claim without having to pay anything up front.
