Forklifts are tremendous tools in a warehouse, industrial, and construction environment. Their ability to lift heavy loads has transformed a variety of industries. At Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn, our San Francisco personal injury lawyers are dedicated to helping individuals who have been innocently injured in a forklift accident seek the compensation they need to recover financially. Medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitative care, and pain and suffering can pile up, causing the already traumatic experience to become amplified.
The same elements that make forklifts useful also make them incredibly dangerous. In order to lift heavy loads, they are counter-balanced, making them very heavy. This weight can easily crush a foot or leg, traumatically amputating it. Forklifts are used in close proximity to pedestrians, but their turning radius makes them behave much differently than cars. An inattentive operator can do a tremendous amount of damage with the flick of a wrist. The ability to raise heavy objects also creates the potential for heavy goods to fall on people.
