Dangerous Workplace Equipment

Most employers are careful to make sure their forklift drivers are well trained and extremely careful when handling this dangerous machinery. Unfortunately, no amount of training and workplace safety measures can overcome the dangers that come from defective forklift design or manufacturing. If you have been hurt by a faulty forklift, talk with a product liability lawyer from Gray, Ritter & Graham, P.C., in St. Louis.

Forklift Injury Lawyers

At Gray, Ritter & Graham, P.C., we represent forklift accident victims in Missouri, Illinois and Arkansas. Since 1946, our Missouri forklift accident attorneys have been fighting for fair and adequate compensation for our injured clients.

Compensation for Forklift Injuries

If you have been injured at work as a result of a faulty forklift, the possibility of compensation exists from three sources:

  • Workers’ compensation — which should compensate you to a degree, regardless of who was at fault
  • Product liability lawsuit — which could hold the faulty designer or manufacturer of the forklift liable for the damages that resulted
  • Your employer — under Missouri’s “something more” doctrine, which could hold your employer liable if your employer carried out an affirmative dangerous act that led to the accident

Most people injured at work are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Further recovery from the manufacturer of a defective forklift may be possible, and the lawyers at GRG would be willing to discuss such a scenario with you.

If a faulty forklift caused an injury, tell us what happened.

The sooner you contact us, the more our GRG lawyers can do to help you. We will listen to your story, and, if you retain us, we will explore every possible avenue for you to obtain full and fair compensation for the injuries you have endured. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
