Injuries sustained in forklift accidents in New York are common at construction sites and warehouse sites, and may lead to temporary or permanent disability, or even death.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury or wrongful death, you may be eligible to receive significant compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages and medical bills from third parties for any of the following:
- Forklift injuries
- Machinery accidents
- Inadequate forklift training
- Forklift negligence
- Site debris accidents
Construction or factory employees who have sustained injuries due to forklift accidents may be entitled to receive worker’s compensation or temporary disability, but such costs may not cover the range of services needed in order to offer a person an opportunity for a full and complete recovery.
In New York, employees are unable to sue their direct employers for job injuries, and therefore the individuals must instead recover from third parties that might be liable for such injuries. Therefore, it is important to schedule a consultation with a forklift accident attorney in NY to discuss potential compensation for your injury.
