Galfand Berger LLP: Personal Injury Attorneys Helping Victims Suffering Forklift Injuries

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury or death in a forklift accident, contact Galfand Berger LLPOur personal injury lawyers have helped dozens of forklift injury victims recover monetary compensation. With offices in Philadelphia, Reading, Lancaster and Bethlehem, our experienced personal injury lawyers are committed to providing forklift injury victims throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey with the personalized attention that their case deserves.

A forklift may be the most dangerous piece of equipment found in a typical manufacturing facility, warehouse, grocery store, or construction site. Its small size makes it prone to falling over on uneven surfaces, and its speed can contribute to collisions with people and property. If you have suffered a debilitating injury due to a forklift accident, Galfand Berger will help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Forklift accidents often occur when forklifts collide with other forklifts, objects or people, when they are used as elevated work platforms, when they tip over on their side, or when objects fall from forklifts due to poorly stacked materials. Such injuries can often be prevented through safer designs or installation of available safeguards, such as seat belts, grab handles, roll over protection systems or falling object protection systems. Whether you have been injured by an improperly operated, poorly maintained or insufficiently safeguarded forklift, our personal injury lawyers can protect your rights and maximize your recovery through settlement or trial.
If your forklift injury has been caused by the negligence of another or defective design and/or manufacture of the forklift, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. Some examples of the types of injuries sustained by our clients as a result of forklift accidents are:

* The forklift did not have a proper Roll Over Protection System (ROPS) causing the death of a victim who was ejected by an upset forklift.

* A client experienced a compressed spine due to being pinned by an upset forklift that did not have a sufficient ROPS.

* A forklift did not have an automatic warning device and ran over an individual because he was unseen by a forklift operator.

* A victim was crushed by pallets that slipped from the top of a forklift that did not have a proper Falling Object Protection System (FOPS).

Our lawyers can help you determine who was responsible for the injury and what damages you may be able to recover.
