Forklift Accidents and Injuries

The Law Offices of Adrian Crane, P.C. April 27, 2015

Forklifts are heavy, often times hard to control and fast-moving machines. Forklifts can be found on construction sites, at warehouses and big-box stores and at other industrial facilities. Workers at these sites need to be constantly aware of where a forklift is and what the forklift is doing. Forklift operators need to be properly trained.

Forklifts can collide with other vehicles and they can also tip over. They also collide with other people working in the area. When forklifts cause accidents, the injuries can be very serious. These injuries can keep you from working for months or years and may permanently limit the type of work you are able to do and thereby limit your ability to earn wages. Your injuries may even prevent you from ever working again.
