Thoughts on workplace forklift accidents

Each year we see 34,900 serious injuries related to forklifts in the United States (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). That is too many — more needs to be done to keep our workers safe.

A common factor in forklift accidents is the lack of proper training for workers on operating a forklift. Employers are responsible for ensuring their workers receive thorough training and have access to necessary safety measures to perform their duties safely. However, some companies prioritize cost and time savings over worker safety, leading to inadequate training and safety equipment provision.

The worker injured here needs help to determine what caused the accident and whether there is any basis for recovering compensation for the lost income and mounting expenses that will surely result from this incident.
