Injuries from Fork Lift Accidents
Safe forklift operation depends on the stability of the operating environment. This means that employers have a responsibility to ensure their workers are properly trained and that all machinery meets industry safety standards.
Examples of the considerations that should be taken into account to prevent harm include:
- Working condition of the machine
- The degree of balance and structural stability in the load being handled
- Visibility and location of obstructions or protrusions that can affect safe forklift or front loader movement
- Training level and physical condition of the operator for complex actions
- Presence of environmental distractions
A forklift operator injured in a workplace accident may initially be blamed by the employer, when the fact is that the design of the forklift itself, negligence of co-employees, or workplace conditions may really be to blame. A successful claim depends strongly on the help of an experienced and dedicated attorney who will fight to ensure that your rights are protected.
Were you injured in a front loader or forklift accident?
If so, you deserve compensation that measures up to the severity of bodily harm you have experienced and the medical bills, loss of pay, damaged personal property and related family anguish you have experienced. Any personal disability you experience from the accident also changes to that degree your ability to carry on with a life that is still meaningful. All these effects have significant cost implications to the parties liable in your accident.
Your attorney must have the skills and knowledge to isolate the cause of failure leading to the accident, the aggressiveness to assure that all the affects you experience from the accident are fully acknowledged and the persistence with the liable parties on a continuing basis to assure that your chronic losses are continually compensated. Our team at The Medler Law Firm has more than 50 years of combined experience handling complex litigation claims, including workplace accident cases. We are prepared to provide your case with the aggressive advocacy need to hold the responsible parties accountable for their negligent actions, and we will fight for the compensation you deserve.
