Forklifts are an indispensable tool of the construction trade. They are found on nearly every job site, and for good reason. They have incredible power to move huge loads. That said, with their power, they can also cause serious injuries.
One common forklift accident happens when a forklift tips over. This frequently happens when the lift was improperly loaded or designed such that it became unbalanced. In the event of design errors, a cab door may not protect an operator. Similarly, subcontractors may improperly train operators or remove warning signs on the machine.
It is important to realize these cases can be very complex, particularly when people are injured due to subcontractors or other third parties. As such, it is extremely important to partner with an experienced legal team if you pursue compensation above and beyond workers’ compensation.
