Forklift Construction Site Accidents

New York Construction Accident Lawyers

Forklift accidents can result in serious injuries to the back, spinal cord, head and other areas of the body. Construction workers who are operators of forklifts or work around them are more vulnerable to these injuries than other types of workers, and the injuries caused by these accidents can be enough to keep workers from returning to the job. These injuries also may require extensive medical treatment with rehabilitation.

We have recovered significant settlements and verdicts for our clients and continue to provide effective advocacy for clients and their families who have been impacted by construction accidents.
