All heavy equipment, including cranes and forklifts, has the potential to cause serious or fatal injuries in an accident. There are many things that can go wrong and cause an accident such as operator error, machinery malfunction, collapses, tip overs, trapping a worker and dropping the cargo. No matter what caused your accident, you will need compensation for your injuries and other losses.

Your Injuries Require Significant Compensation
Crane and forklift accidents can cause similar injuries. Both machines can fall over, drop their cargo load, knock over structures and strike or entrap workers. These types of incidents can lead to injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Crush injuries
- Internal organ damage
Any of these injuries can result in temporary or permanent disability. In a physical job such as construction, this can mean that you cannot return to work. You and your family will need compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost income and benefits. If you are permanently disabled, you will need to compensate for the permanent loss of your wages and benefits.
When we investigate your case, we will determine which parties are responsible for your accident. We will seek compensation from all liable parties in order to maximize the amount you may recover.
