What Goes Wrong with Forklifts?

Forklifts are typically found in:

  • Grocery stores
  • Construction sites
  • Warehouses
  • Manufacturing facilities

While these are heavy machines, their small sizes make them prone to toppling over when parked on uneven surfaces. What’s more, their speed can lead to collisions with property and people. It is essential that forklifts are properly maintained and operated to minimize the risk of accidents.

Have You Suffered a Serious Forklift Injury in the Workplace?

Unfortunately, worker’s compensation can be limited in the financial support that it offers, and not everyone has adequate coverage. Some accidents that occur in the workplace necessitate legal action so that the negligent party is held responsible. Our team of New York construction accident attorneys at Dansker & Aspromonte has a successful history in third-party lawsuits, and we aim to win maximum compensation for work injury victims.

  • Being run down by a forklift on the job due to unsafe workplace practices or inadequate operator training
  • Toxic exposure, explosion, or fire due to a forklift colliding with a drum containing dangerous materials
