Road Traffic Accidents in Work Vehicles
Drivers of work vehicles such as company cars, vans and heavy goods vehicles (HGV) that are involved in a road accident have the same right to claim for compensation as any other road user. Similarly, when involved in a road accident, these drivers usually experience similar problems and injuries experienced by other road users who have been in an accident.
A work related vehicle accident typically occurs on a road and involves an employee that spends time driving vehicles such a company car, taxi or van. However, operators of forklift trucks and construction vehicles might become involved in an accident at their place of work.
Whatever your circumstances, our expert car accident at work solicitors are here to help you with your injury claim.

How long will my work vehicle accident claim take?
The time it takes to conclude your claim is closely tied in with the complexity of your injuries. This means that if you suffered many injuries, it would take additional time to examine each one, extending the length of time your case will take. If you were involved in an accident while driving a work vehicle, contact our solicitors and they will advise you on the length of time your claim will take.
