Most people know that following a car accident, you can claim compensation from those at fault. However, if you are injured while driving a vehicle at work, your claim would be against the insurance companies of other drivers, if they caused the accident, or could be bought against your employer.
Whether you are a delivery driver, forklift truck operator or agricultural worker, anyone who makes use of a vehicle at work can make a claim against their employer if they are injured doing so.
Accidents in work vehicles are the responsibility of your employer. It is your employer’s duty to provide you with a vehicle that is safe to use on the roads. It is also their responsibility to make sure that you have received adequate training in how to use the vehicle, no matter what type of contract you are on.
