If you or a loved one has been injured in a forklift accident, contact Strom & Associates in Chicago, Illinois. Our attorneys have more than 50 years of combined legal experience and have represented thousands of clients who have sustained work-related injuries. We have experience in forklift accident claims. We also represent clients in cases involving other heavy equipment accidents.
If you have been injured in a forklift accident, lift truck accident, pallet stacker accident, crane accident or other heavy equipment accident at work, you may have been told by your employer or a co-worker that workers’ compensation is your only available means of recovery. If you were injured by a third party (someone other than your employer or a co-worker), you may be entitled to pursue compensation through a third-party liability claim, which is a type of personal injury claim.
Given our vast experience in both personal injury claims and workers’ compensation claims, we may be able to identify available means of compensation that may be missed by less experienced firms.
