    How Can I Pursue Damages?

    PLAY

    "She cares about her people. That is what's different about Betty." -Erin, Former Client

    Civilians injured in a forklift accident can file a civil lawsuit claiming that the forklift operator was acting negligently in their work (they breached their duty of care to operate safely and properly). Such a claim must be filed within 2 years of the date of the accident.

    If the injured plaintiff is the forklift operator themselves and they were injured while performing on the job, they can pursue compensation for their injuries by filing a workers’ compensation claim within 1 year of the accident. The injured employee should first notify the supervisor about the accident. They can then proceed with a workers’ compensation claim, which can include treatment from a workers’ compensation doctor. Some damages an injured worker may retain include lost wages and permanent disability benefits. 

    In some cases, a third party may be liable for a forklift injury, such as the company that rented out or supplied the forklift. If a forklift lacks a standard safety feature that consequently causes injury, the injured individual may pursue a product liability lawsuit. They may even consider a lawsuit based on premises liability if unsafe conditions on the property caused malfunctions of the forklift.

    There are many different scenarios in which you might sue for a forklift accident. In any case, Davis Injury Firm is prepared to represent you. Attorney Betty Nguyen Davis likes to take on difficult cases and has a passion to win.
