If you or a family member has been injured in a forklift accident, retaining Roger Davie, P.C., provides you access to a skilled, dedicated and compassionate Texas attorney recognized within the legal industry. Construction site accident claims are complex and require representation based on a foundation of legal knowledge, specifically Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Forklifts, formally known as powered industrial trucks, come in many forms. Standard lift trucks use the forks to lift and tilt, raising loads onto pallets. Boom/telescoping forklifts are used for lifting loads to heights exceeding 40 feet.
The Need For Safety To Prevent Forklift And Crane Accidents
Operation of any type of forklift requires in-depth training and certification. After becoming certified, the operator must maintain the highest standards of safety under OSHA requirements. Specifically, operators must control their speed, prevent the forklift from falling over or striking other workers, and carry a properly braced and manageable load.
Tip-overs, crashes and ejections are often the result of careless operation. Sudden turns can result in the forklift and its load falling over. Speeding without paying attention to surroundings can result in catastrophic and deadly collisions.
Forklift accidents can also be caused by poor maintenance or a forklift being used when it is old and worn. A forklift missing vital safety features such as backup mirrors, alarms and horns puts everyone on a construction site at risk.
If you have been injured because of a defective forklift or a negligent operator, you have the right to seek compensation through your employer's benefit plan, nonsubscriber insurance or a third-party personal injury claim. Roger Davie is more than equipped to take on more complex cases that involve more than one claim against multiple parties.
