Forklift Accidents

Forklift accidents are common in warehouses where heavy items need to be lifted and transported. While employers are required to provide medical and wage replacement benefits for injured workers, the workers are often shortchanged.

For more than 20 years, Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation lawyers, Jeffrey S. Gross and Patrick W. Kenny have aggressively fought for the rights of injured workers in Pennsylvania. If you have been injured in any kind of workplace accident, contact us today for a free initial consultation about your case.

What Should I Do After A Workplace Accident?

If this is the first time you have been injured in an accident at work, you may be unfamiliar with the rules. That inexperience can cost you money. Even if your employer or Workers’ Compensation insurance carrier pays benefits initially, it may stop those benefits at any time. For example, the Workers’ Compensation doctor may say that your injury has been resolved or is not work-related.

Our Philadelphia work accident lawyers will manage every step of your Workers’ Compensation case. We will file your claim, schedule medical appointments, consult with medical experts and negotiate with the insurance carrier on your behalf. This leaves you free to concentrate on recovering your health.

Can I Sue My Employer?

In most cases, Workers’ Compensation protects employers from employee lawsuits, even if the employer was negligent. However, if someone other than your employer caused your injury, you may have a right to sue the
third party. Examples of third parties in a forklift accident case include:

  • The manufacturer of the forklift
  • The supplier of the pallet, if items were not properly secured
  • Vendors working at the facility

Our experienced Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation lawyers will evaluate your forklift accident case to determine if you have a right to sue any third parties who caused or contributed to your injury.
