Claims Against Amazon
Do you work for Amazon or are you an ex-employee who has suffered an Amazon warehouse accident? If you have been injured due to an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
It doesn’t matter whether you were directly employed by Amazon or were working as a contractor for an agency. If your injuries were caused by working conditions and failings in health and safety by Amazon or negligence on their part, then you could be eligible to claim compensation.

Amazon Warehouse Accident Claims
As an employer, Amazon has a duty of care towards all its staff, whether directly employed, agency workers or privately hired contractors. This means that they have to provide a safe and suitable working environment. If they fail to follow health and safety procedures and this causes an accident, they could be held legally liable for any injuries sustained and may have to pay compensation
At Jefferies, we have expert personal injury solicitors that can help you claim compensation if you have been injured while working at Amazon.
Our clients often receive compensation pay-outs for warehouse injuries. What’s more, we offer every client a no win no fee service. This means that you don’t have to take any financial risks by paying upfront to make your claim.
If you do have legitimate grounds on which to make a warehouse injury claim, we will make an estimate and let you know how much compensation your injuries could be worth.
Types of Warehouse Injuries
Warehouses are potentially very hazardous environments to work in. Serious injuries can occur if proper standards of health and safety are not maintained.
Some of the common ways injuries are sustained by warehouse workers can include, but are not limited to:
- Falls from ladders
- Forklift truck-related injuries
- Manual handling injuries
- Racking and storage injuries
- Slips, trips and falls
- Working temperatures and cold injuries
- Objects falling – if boxes and equipment are stored on high shelves and not properly packed away, they can fall, causing injuries
- Exposure to harmful substances – harmful chemicals can be used in warehouses, either for cleaning or other purposes
Some of the common injuries that are sustained by warehouse workers can include, but are not limited to:
- Crush injuries – from falling objects, racking and forklift trucks.
- Back injuries – workers often suffer back injuries due to manual handling accidents or falls.
- Chemical burns – from employers not providing the right Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and training.
