Forklift accidents are often the result of an improper design in the workplace, narrow aisles, blind spots, poor turning radius, or other reasons. Given the weight of forklifts, any negligence or mistakes can prove very costly to the operator or bystanders.
Common forklifts accidents can include:
- Employees struck by falling loads
- Forklifts tipping over
- Falls from forklifts
- Employees struck by powered forklifts
Some accidents are the result of an improperly trained operator who makes dangerous turns or fails to warn others of their presence. If this is the case and you were injured by an improperly trained operator, an injury suit put together by our Boston workers' compensation lawyer can hold the driver and even management liable.
