Fork Lift Accidents
A forklift is one of the most dangerous pieces of equipment at a construction site. Improper maintenance and poor operator training can lead to catastrophic and even fatal forklift accidents.
Helping Injured Workers Obtain Workers’ Compensation Benefits
If you have suffered an on-the-job injury, you are entitled to workers’ compensation. This is a no-fault system designed to cover your medical expenses and lost wages, regardless of who caused the forklift accident. Unfortunately, Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation system is complicated. Legitimate work injury claims are denied on a regular basis.
Seeking a Full Financial Recovery for Injured Construction Workers
Construction accident claims are complicated. Several parties could potentially be at-fault for causing serious and fatal work-related accident. The forklift accident attorneys at our law firm can invest significant time and resources to determine if someone other than your employer caused the forklift accident, such as:
- Contractors or subcontractor
- Building supervisor
- Property owner
- Forklift manufacturer
We begin our approach analyzing contracts between your employer, the land owner and the other contractors to understand everyone’s responsibilities. We can consult safety experts to understand if the forklift was properly maintained or if the accident was possibly related to unsafe construction equipment.
We will interview eyewitnesses to understand if a crew member’s negligent actions possibly led to the forklift accident. We fully investigate construction accident scenes to determine if a third party was at fault. Our legal team is committed to helping injured workers obtain maximum compensation for all the damages they have endured.
