I’ve been injured in a forklift accident. Can I claim forklift injury compensation?

Since forklift accidents generally happen in the workplace, they often involve two compensation claims – a CTP claim and a workers compensation claim. Some of your entitlements will be paid under the workers compensation scheme, and some under the CTP scheme. At Law Partners, we have a lot of experience handling claims like this, so we can make sure you get your full forklift injury compensation entitlements under both schemes.

If you’re unsure about what to do you can call us for free advice – we’ll put you straight through to one of our forklift accident lawyers.

We’ll get you more compensation.

Forklift accident injuries can be serious, and often mean time off work, unplanned expenses and financial stress. But your situation is unique, and your injuries may have led to other health issues and complications. For example, a knee injury can cause a limp, leading to a back injury. We’ll take time to get to know you personally, to understand all your issues and their impact on your life. That’s why you’ll get more compensation with a Law Partners forklift accident lawyer on your side.

What forklift accidents can I claim for?

Here are some examples:

Forklift rollovers.

Often caused by turning too quickly, overweight, uneven, or unbalanced loads, abrupt mast movement, turning on an incline, driving with the load elevated or driving on uneven surfaces.


Pedestrians hit by a forklift.

Often due to operators being distracted or fatigued, lack of warning signs and signals, or lack of safety barriers or floor tape markings.


Falling loads.

Often caused by improper load creation, off-centre, damaged, or loose loads, moving, lifting, or tilting the mast too fast, no load backrest or bent forks.


Crushed by forklift.

From inattentive reversing, being crushed by the mast while tilting, or materials falling from the forks.


No matter how you‘ve been injured, there’s no cost to speak to one of our forklift accident lawyers and find out how much you can claim.

What can I claim for a forklift accident injury?

Forklift accident injuries usually happen in the workplace, and most forklifts don’t have CTP insurance. So claims are generally assessed under the CTP insurance scheme rules, but compensation is paid by the workers compensation insurer.

Workers injured in forklift accidents may also be able to claim lump sum payments such as:

  • A lump sum for past and future lost wages.
  • A lump sum for pain and suffering.
  • A lump sum for a permanent impairment under the workers compensation scheme.
  • A lump sum for damages if your employer caused your accident through negligence.
  • A lump sum for damages if a third party caused your accident through negligence.
  • A lump sum for TPD if you’re unable to return to work because of your injuries.

If you’ve been injured in a forklift accident, it’s important to get legal advice to make sure you receive your full compensation entitlements. You can call 13 15 15 for free advice from a forklift injury lawyer.

Frequently asked questions.

You can lodge your own compensation claims without using a lawyer. However, forklift accident claims can be particularly complex, and it’s important to understand that if you leave out important details in your applications, or if your certificate of fitness isn’t completed correctly, it’s likely you’ll miss out on benefits you’re entitled to. Our forklift accident injury lawyers can advise you on how to make sure you claim everything you’re entitled to, and we’ll provide free advice over the phone.

We can also provide advice on whether you’re entitled to an additional lump sum for Work Injury Damages, or a TPD payout through your super fund.

We work on a no win no fee, no disbursements basis, so you’ll only need to pay us if we win, and you receive your forklift injury compensation. In many cases we can also get the insurer that’s paying your compensation to cover your legal fees, so there’s nothing for you to pay.
