Forklifts’ capacity to move heavy equipment is accompanied by a high degree of danger when operated negligently. Severe injuries, spine injuries, head injuries, amputations and deaths often result from fork lift operator negligence. Companies using forklifts are responsible for the negligence of their employees. These companies also have a duty to exercise proper care in hiring, training and supervising the fork lift operators who work for them. This duty including both creating and implementing safety policies and procedures to keep people safe on the job.
Fork lift accident injury cases often result from:
- Operator Negligence;
- Collisions with workers on the ground;
- Failure to follow safety policies and procedure;
- Equipment malfunctions;
- Attempting to move unstable loads.
