Fork Lift & Lift Truck Accident Attorneys
When you work with heavy machinery, there is always a risk that you could get hurt. This is certainly true when using forklifts. The primary purpose of a forklift, also called lift trucks and powered industrial trucks, is to move and lift heavy materials and items. Forklifts and other powered industrial trucks can be operated by either a rider or controlled by an operator who is not actually riding in the truck.Forklift Injuries—The Facts
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there are over 60,000 forklift accidents every year in the United States alone. Of these accidents, more than half (approximately 34,000) result in serious injuries, and around 85 result in death. A forklift is such a huge and heavy piece of machinery that if overturns or malfunctions it can definitely cause severe harm to operators or bystanders.How a Qualified Attorney can Help
If you suffered any accident injury, due to a fork lift, lift truck or other industrial truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. This compensation could include workers’ compensation if the accident occurred while working as well as other available damages to cover the cost of your losses. If you lost a family member in a forklift accident, you have a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death claim can be brought against the person or party responsible for the fatal forklift accident. This type of claim enables you to receive financial compensation for the loss of your loved one.
