You May Need Considerable Compensation For Your Losses
Severe or fatal injuries may be caused when workers are crushed or pinned by forklifts. Forklift injuries may occur for reasons such as:
- Rollover accidents
- Colliding with a worker
- Operating in dangerous areas
- Failure to properly equip the forklift for construction work
- A load falling on a worker
- Defective forklift parts

Forklift operators and workers near the forklift are all at risk for injury and wrongful death. They may suffer crush injuries, internal injuries and organ damage, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), back injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and amputations.
