NYC Forklift Injury Lawyer

Forklifts are often operated in busy areas such as construction sites and warehouses. Whatever the location and whether you are the forklift operator or a bystander, you have a right to expect safe conditions within which to work.

Unfortunately, some employers and forklift operators are negligent in this duty. This inevitably results in accidents, injuries, and property damage.

An NYC forklift injury lawyer can represent you after your accident. Working with an experienced attorney is your best option to ensure you are treated fairly and receive financial compensation.

Your Right to Compensation

After a forklift accident injury, you will probably be faced with substantial financial burden. Injuries require treatment and recovery time, and neither of these tends to be inexpensive.

With the assistance of an NYC forklift injury lawyer, you can seek compensation for any expense related to your accident:

  • Lost wages due to time off from work
  • Medical bills
  • Physical therapy
  • Pain and suffering

Workers Compensation and Forklift Accidents

Forklift injuries that occur while on the job should be eligible for workers compensation coverage. You can file a workers compensation claim regardless of who was at fault for your accident.

Some employers attempt to get around workers compensation claims by rushing employees back to work before they’ve recovered or attempting to deny that injuries took place on the job. Sometimes the workers compensation insurance may attempt to deny payment for a medical procedure you need in order to recover. When you’ve been injured on the job, none of these scenarios should be allowed to pass.

In New York, you have the right to dispute a workers compensation ruling that you do not agree with. You can request a hearing before a judge who will listen to testimony and review medical records prior to making a formal ruling. The knowledge and experience of an NYC forklift injury lawyer can be invaluable throughout these proceedings.

Forklift Injuries and Civil Lawsuits

If your workers compensation benefits won’t cover all of your expenses or you were not an employee, you may need to file a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation for your damages and expenses.

Unlike workers compensation, demonstrating who was at fault will be crucial to your case. You will need to work closely with your NYC forklift injury lawyer to gather sufficient evidence to demonstrate that someone else was responsible for the accident.

Proving Negligence

Very often, a third party is to blame for a forklift accident. Proving this is essential to recovering damages beyond workers compensation.

A few examples of third party negligence include the following:

  • Manufacturers producing dangerous or defective forklifts
  • Faulty parts used to service a forklift
  • A mechanic failing to service a forklift properly
  • External dangers caused by a third party’s negligence
  • And more
