Pursuing the Compensation You Deserve
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), forklift misuse and accidents cause close to 100,000 injuries every year and nearly 100 deaths. Nearly 35,000 of these injuries are considered catastrophic injuries. Accidents are part and parcel of working with heavy machinery, but when injuries or deaths are caused by negligence, victims and families have every right to pursue compensation for their damages, including:
- The costs of medical care and future medical needs
- Permanent disability or disfigurement
- Lost work wages and lost future earnings
- A victim’s pain and suffering or mental anguish
- Emotional injuries and loss sustained by families
Forklifts and worksites are heavily regulated to ensure the risks of preventable harm are kept at a minimum. For example, it is a violation of federal law for uncertified individuals and anyone under the age of 18 to operate a forklift. Unfortunately, unsafe work environments, negligent operators, improper training or licensing, and safety violations still contribute to many accidents involving forklifts.
