Independence Warehouse Injury Attorney
Forklift accidents are unfortunately common on construction sites, on loading docks and in factory and warehouse environments in Missouri and around the country. Serious injuries and even fatalities occur when these heavy steel vehicles malfunction, drop loads unexpectedly or are operated by inexperienced workers, to cite just a few examples of the dangers.
Most people injured in forklift accidents have workers' compensation insurance coverage. When serious injuries occur, however, it can be critical to talk with an experienced lawyer who will investigate whether someone other than your employer should be held liable for what happened.
Proven Lawyers for High-Value On-the-Job Injury Lawsuits
At Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, we have been taking legal action for injured workers since 1984, and we are ready to thoroughly evaluate your legal options after a serious forklift accident. Our attorneys stand ready to represent victims of accidents such as:
- A forklift or other vehicle accident on a construction site, including cases of a forklift striking or running over a worker on foot
- A forklift tip-over due to overload, instability or other preventable problems, sometimes resulting in severe crush injuries or even a tragic wrongful death
- Improper use of forklifts as lifting/elevation devices, resulting in a serious fall or entanglement with equipment
- Lack of required protective guarding and other safety equipment on the forklift
- Forklift malfunctions due to negligent maintenance
Depending on your exact circumstances, a valid lawsuit against a third party — such as a subcontractor on the premises, the forklift manufacturer, a maintenance company or other entity — may go much further in financially supporting your recovery than your work comp coverage.
Our metro Kansas City forklift accident lawyers have experience across the spectrum of construction accident cases and high-stakes wrongful death as well as personal injury litigation. We have access to qualified industrial safety experts and in-depth knowledge of safety regulations governed by both the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
