Forklifts are a commonly used piece of industrial equipment, and are also a common cause of industrial accidents resulting in property damage, injury or even death.
Forklift accidents are responsible for thousands of serious injuries each year in the United States. Accidents occur when forklifts tip over, hit or run over co-workers and pedestrians, lose their load, fall off loading docks, or are improperly maintained. The situation is magnified when drivers lack proper training, loads are improperly stacked or are too heavy, or the pace of production is unreasonable.
If you have been injured in a forklift accident, you may be able to make a personal injury claim to help compensate you for your injury and losses. Speak with a Cunningham Bounds lawyer today to learn more about how we can help you.
