Brooklyn Forklift Accident Lawyer
When to Call a Brooklyn Attorney for Your Injuries
Forklift trucks are a normal part of construction and industrial job sites.
Forklifts pose a hazard to the employees that work in and around these
types of vehicles. For this reason, there are specific guidelines to follow
to ensure forklift safety. If you suffered a forklift injury at work,
you should contact an experienced Brooklyn forklift accident lawyer as
soon as possible.
There are many different types of forklift trucks. Many are built for the
specific type of work that they do. Some are made to lift and move pallets
from warehouses. Some are designed to load packages on and off of delivery
trucks. Regardless of what kind of forklift caused your injury, you may
have a claim for damages in a Brooklyn construction accident lawsuit.

Do I have a valid claim?
The leading cause of death in forklift accidents is rollovers. These types
of accidents are often caused by a shifting of the weight in the load
that the forklift is carrying. Rollovers can be very dangerous because
the driver of the forklift can sustain serious head injuries and other
injuries. Another serious danger in forklift use is the risk of the forklift
falling off the loading dock. When a forklift rolls or is driven off the
edge of a loading dock,
serious bodily injuries can be sustained by the person inside the forklift. If you have been injured
in a forklift accident, you should contact one of our experienced Brooklyn
construction accident attorneys with Belushin Law Firm.
Forklifts also pose a serious danger to pedestrians in Brooklyn and surrounding
areas. Sometimes these pedestrians that are struck by forklifts are coworkers,
but sometimes they are innocent passers-by. A forklift can seriously injure
and even kill a pedestrian. Workers and visitors who are on foot are also
at risk of being injured by an object that falls from the forklift. If
you were injured by a forklift operator’s negligence, you may be
able to file a lawsuit to compensate you for your pain and suffering.
Forklifts can be very dangerous to both the operators of the machines and
to the people who work around them. Many forklift injuries occur when
a foot or other body part is run over by the machine or pinned beneath
the lift mechanism. Pedestrians can also be struck by moving vehicles,
and drivers can be injured in a forklift crash. Occasionally, a serious
forklift accident results in the death of one of the people involved.
