Forklifts are frequently used by workers at construction sites, manufacturing facilities, warehouses, industrial plants and other workplaces. Due to their size and weight distribution, forklifts are prone to falling over on uneven surfaces. Other common causes of forklift accidents include:

Operator error

Improper training of an operator

Improper loading

Failure to maintain or inspect heavy equipment

Dangerous work sites

What You Should Know

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.
