What Type of Compensation Can I Receive?

Forklifts are one of the most dangerous pieces of machinery on work sites and have the potential to cause devastating and catastrophic injuries. While it is a smaller machine, it carries significant weight.

Here are some examples of the dangers associated with forklift accidents:

  • Tipping over due to uneven or rough areas
  • Cargo overloaded on the forklift
  • Coworker negligence and other safety violations
  • Injuries to other employees due to lack of security measures
  • Collisions with objects, other workers, and property
  • Lack of operator training or manager supervision
  • Improper maintenance on equipment

Workers’ compensation has a very limited scope as to what it will cover. While it will allow compensation for medical treatments and lost income due to being unable to work, it will not provide for emotional anguish or mental suffering. As West Virginia injury lawyers, we can determine what was the direct cause of your accident and use that to hold the other parties responsible.
