Forklifts are commonly used on construction sites and at other industrial work sites throughout New York. These vehicles need to be driven properly, given that they weigh thousands of pounds and can cause devastating injuries in an accident. Unfortunately, when drivers are not properly trained or when forklifts are not driven correctly, it can have catastrophic or fatal results.
If you were injured in a forklift accident while working on a construction site or industrial workplace in New York City, speak with an experienced attorney at Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C. We represent individuals in workers' compensation matters and in third-party liability cases.
New York Forklift Accident Lawyers
While workers on construction and industrial work sites are eligible for workers' compensation benefits, victims of forklift accidents may also pursue third-party liability claims against responsible property owners or contractors. Our attorneys will work to determine whether someone other than your employer was negligent and can be held liable for your accident.
Examples of negligence that can lead to forklift accidents include overloading or improper loading of forklift materials, malfunctions and lack of protective guarding, and the insufficient training of forklift operators.
