Forklifts are used in many different situations. You can see them at the supermarket, on construction sites, at the train station, at a department or big box store, in a factory or warehouse, and at many other locations. They are relatively small and easy to maneuver, making them very useful for picking up pallets and other loads. Because of their convenience and small size, forklifts are the first choice when moving small to moderate loads in crowded spaces at Bronx construction sites and other areas.
Given their popularity, it is not surprising that forklifts cause numerous injuries and even deaths. If you were injured in a forklift accident, it is important to find out about your legal options. If another party’s negligence caused the injuries, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit seeking compensation. To learn whether you are eligible for damages after a construction accident in the Bronx, NY, contact the experienced attorneys at the law firm of Proner & Proner. Schedule a free initial consultation and find out how we can help you.
Injuries occur both to workers driving forklifts and those near a forklift. Moreover, these forklift accident injuries can be suffered by members of the public. Forklift accidents happen when:
An overturning forklift can leave a driver with serious crush injuries, as well as brain and spinal cord injuries. A dropped load due to improper pickup can fall on someone nearby. A forklift can overturn because of careless operation or because of hazards left in its path. Defective or poorly maintained components can prevent a forklift from stopping or turning properly, putting both the driver and those nearby at risk.
To learn whether you could be eligible to receive compensation after a forklift injury in Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, or anywhere else in NY’s five boroughs, call the experienced Bronx forklift accident lawyers at Proner & Proner today or fill out the online contact form.
