Crane And Forklift Accidents

Cranes, forklifts and other large pieces of construction equipment can be dangerous for workers due to their size and the potential risk they pose for serious and fatal injuries.

When crane and forklift accidents are due to defects or are caused by negligence, injured workers may have the right to seek workers' compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and other benefits, in addition to workers' compensation benefits.

Common Causes Of Crane And Forklift Accidents

One of the most important parts of any construction accident case is knowing where to look to determine who should be held liable for injuries and damages. Crane and forklift accidents may involve:

  • Cranes and forklifts tipping over
  • Forklifts running over other construction workers
  • Cranes swaying and hitting buildings
  • Crane falls or collapses
  • Malfunctioning equipment on forklifts or cranes
  • Dropping materials or debris from heights

Whether your case ultimately involves workers' compensation, third-party claims or both, my firm will thoroughly investigate your accident and pursue maximum compensation from all negligent parties.
