Common Forklift Accidents
Forklift accidents are responsible for thousands of serious injuries each year in the United States. Due to their large size and weight, forklifts can substantially harm an individual.
Accidents commonly occur in the following situations:
- The forklift tips over
- The forklift hits or runs over co-workers and pedestrians
- The forklift loses its load
- The forklift falls off loading docks
- The forklift is improperly maintained
The situation is only magnified when drivers lack proper training, loads are improperly stacked or are too heavy, or the pace of production is unreasonable.
