Forklift Accidents

Forklifts are used at construction sites and industrial work locations throughout the country and can even be seen on a daily basis at large home remodeling stores. Forklifts, however, can pose a serious risk to both users and bystanders if the operator lacks proper training, is unaware of his or her surroundings, fails to abide by operating instructions, or is operating a machine that has been inadequately maintained. Forklifts can tip if driven at unsafe speeds or if loads are transported at an unsafe height, people can also be injured or killed if struck by a forklift, and cargo can fall if improperly loaded and injure those nearby. If you or someone you love has been involved in a forklift accident in the New York area, a construction accident attorney at our firm can review your case and advise a course of action. It is important to remember that you have legal rights if you have been injured as a result of another party’s actions.

Backhoe Accidents

Backhoes are construction vehicles commonly used for smaller scale engineering projects. The swinging apparatus of the rear hoe, combined with the top heavy nature of the vehicle and movable front shovel can make the vehicle dangerously unstable, especially in less than ideal conditions such as on uneven ground. If the operator lacks an intimate familiarity with the characteristics of the backhoe, or the backhoe is improperly maintained, there is a serious risk for injury.

We can help you file a personal injury claim if you or someone you love has been injured in a backhoe accident. If an injury accident results because a backhoe is poorly designed or constructed, our product liability lawyers, serving New York and Manhattan, can help you file a lawsuit against the backhoe designer or manufacturer.
