New Jersey Forklift Injury Lawyers

Forklifts are especially useful machinery in many work settings, such as warehouse operations, construction sites, shipping yards, retailers, and during trucking deliveries, as they are used to move heavy pallets of materials.

It is critically important to be trained on the proper use of a forklift, as workers who operate them often have to operate in tight spaces and narrow warehouse aisles. According to estimates by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), “…forklifts cause about 85 fatal accidents per year; 34,900 accidents result in serious injury; and 61,800 are classified as non-serious. Studies show that many of these accidents could have been prevented by better training.”

Due to the very nature of operating heavy machinery, such as a forklift, accidents involving a forklift can be serious, or even fatal. Common injuries in forklift accidents include:

Spinal cord injuries
• Neck and back injuries such as herniated discs
Fractures
Shoulder injuries
Knee/ankle injuries
Head/brain injuries
• Lacerations
Amputations
• Nerve damage
• Soft tissue damage

Forklifts must meet certain safety standards, which help ensure the safety of the employees who operate them, and their co-workers. If you are injured in a forklift accident, you need to contact a personal injury attorney who will make sure your rights are protected, and that you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to.
