Forklift Accidents

Forklift Accidents

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. Such injuries may be the result of negligence, or defective equipment. In any case, people who have sustained injuries as the result of forklift accidents must often undergo costly medical care and may lose income as they recover and rehabilitate from their injuries.

The construction accident lawyers at The Sanders Firm are advocates for those who have been injured in forklift accidents and similar work-related injuries due to  negligence. Our experienced trial attorneys have won large settlements for clients involved in construction accidents resulting from hazardous job conditions.

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.



Liability for damages in a forklift accident

Parties who may be held liable for injuries or death in a forklift accident include property owners, contractors, subcontractors, forklift companies, and supply manufacturers. Some who have sustained serious workplace or work-related injuries have obtained multi-million dollar settlements, so it is essential to have an experienced New York construction accident attorney on your side to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
