Pennsylvania Forklift Accident Lawyers

Representation for Workers in Carlisle, Hanover, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Schuylkill County & York

Whether it involved pickers, powered platform trucks, or any other type of forklift, a workplace accident involving these machines can be life-changing or even fatal. From 2021 to 2022, forklift accidents forced workers to spend 24,960 days away from work due to injuries, with many of these workers requiring a job transfer because the extent of their injuries had altered the type of work they were still able to perform. Worse still, in 2022, forklifts were involved in 73 workplaces deaths, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Forklift Accidents Are a Hazard in Many Different Industries

Forklifts figure into the “Fatal Four” accidents of construction work, responsible for fatal struck-by and caught-in/between accidents, and they are a prevalent risk for both transportation and struck-by accidents in warehousing, wholesale trade, goods-producing industries, and many other worksites.

Whether it’s in on a construction site, in manufacturing facilities, or doing work in warehouses, forklifts accidents can involve (and certainly aren’t limited to):

  • Loads slipping from the forklift and falling onto workers
  • The forklift striking something like a ladder or other equipment that falls onto an employee
  • Forklift tip-overs, such as while taking sharp turns
  • Falls from platforms in a forklift
  • Employees getting crushed by a forklift

Most often these injuries are recorded as bruises and soreness, but in more serious accidents, workers can suffer fractures as well as traumatic brain injuries or amputations. Too often, families have to file for death benefits from workers’ compensation or file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one who was killed in a forklift accident.
