Build A Strong Case.
Contact Crane And Forklift Accident Lawyer Rob Shelton.
Forklift and crane accidents are some of the most common – and most serious – construction/worksite injuries we handle in Kentucky at the Shelton Law Group. Due to the large size of such construction equipment, people injured by forklifts and cranes often sustain serious injuries like spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and, in certain extreme cases, even death.
Forklift operators and crane operators are supposed to undergo rigorous training to operate such powerful pieces of equipment. If you were injured in an accident involving either one of these devices, the Shelton Law Group can investigate whether the right training was provided to the operators. We can also examine if safety measures were taken to protect people working at your construction or workplace site. We can examine if the operator was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or was otherwise distracted.
A crane or forklift may malfunction due to a defect with the equipment. We may be able to pursue a third party work injury claim or a product liability lawsuit on your behalf. We leave no stone unturned.
In many cases, the individual or business that is accused of being negligent in the accident will deny any wrongdoing. They might even try to claim you did something to cause the accident. We’re familiar with such tactics at the Shelton Law Group. We know how to build a strong case that clearly demonstrates that you did nothing wrong. We know where to find the facts that help you get the compensation you rightfully deserve. We’re on your side.
