Chicago Forklift Accident Lawyers
Legal Assistance Following Serious Injuries
Forklifts are a common part of various work settings, such as factories or warehouses. Operated and maintained properly, they offer a safe means of moving substantial volumes of materials or goods from one location to another. Their functionality exists in part due to their extreme weight and small footprint.
These same factors can help cause or exacerbate a number of different types of accidents, including:
- Tipping: Forklifts may be required to operate near loading docks or on ramps. Improperly carrying a load that is too heavy, inattentive operation, or failure to mark a hazard can result in a forklift tipping over, causing injuries to the operator or nearby workers.
- Dropped loads: Unsecured or improperly loaded materials or goods can fall off a forklift during transport, injuring the operator or nearby workers.
- Striking a worker: Careless forklift operation can result in a worker being struck, with the possibility of a body part (such as a foot) being run over. The weight of a forklift makes that a very serious concern.
