Identifying the Causes of Your Accident
On a job site where multiple companies are working together on a single project, it is important for everyone to take responsibility for forklift safety. There are many factors that can contribute to forklift accidents, including but not limited to the following:
- Obstructed visibility as a result of overloading
- Defectively designed and manufactured forklifts
- Inadequate training of forklift drivers
- Inattentive, careless and reckless driving
If a person or company other than your direct employer or a fellow employee of that employer was fully or partially responsible for your injuries, you may have a personal injury claim in addition to any workers' compensation benefits you may receive.
Pursuing Your Claim for Full Compensation
I am dedicated to doing what it takes to get my clients the fair compensation they deserve. If you choose to have me represent you, I will immediately begin carefully investigating your case in order to identify who may be liable for your injuries.
I am prepared to take cases to trial, and the insurance companies and their defense lawyers know it. If you have been injured or a family member has been killed in a forklift accident, don't hesitate to contact my office to schedule an appointment.
