Dallas Forklift Accident Attorneys
A forklift is heavy, fast, and dangerous, capable of running people over and knocking heavy stacks of materials to the ground. It is the responsibility of the forklift driver to use caution and to pay attention when operating the forklift. Yet inattention is the primary cause of most forklift accidents in warehouses, manufacturing facilities, printing operations, construction sites, and roadwork operations.
If you were hurt or your loved one was killed in an accident involving a forklift, it's important to investigate the cause of the accident so that you can recover money for your damages and losses. At the Dallas personal injury firm of Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, we believe that injured workers deserve aggressive representation and full compensation. Our workplace accident lawyers bring third-party injury claims on behalf of those involved in forklift accidents. In addition, we also represent families of those who have been killed in such accidents.

Extensive Experience with Forklift Accidents
Because of its size and shape, a forklift is prone to falling over on uneven surfaces. Because of its speed, a forklift can quickly collide with people and property. For example, knocking over merchandise or scaffolding. Proper maintenance, safety features in good working order, and operator safety training are essential.
Our injury attorneys have handled forklift cases in which employees or others on the job site were run down by fast-moving forklifts that were being operated negligently. We've handled cases for employees who suffered head injuries after being struck by falling merchandise when a forklift backed into a stack of pallets. We've also represented forklift operators who were hurt on the loading dock when the dock or warehouse owner failed to set up protocols for the work area, creating dangerous conditions. In one case we handled, the forklift fell from the back of a truck when the truck driver left the dock prematurely.
Securing Compensation for the Injured
If you or a loved one was injured on the job site, don't assume it was your fault or that you are limited to workers' compensation.
