Seeking Compensation For Workers Injured In Forklift Accidents

For people who work in warehouses, production facilities or similar environments, forklifts are in constant operation throughout the facility. When they are not handled properly, forklifts can be extremely dangerous and can cause severe injuries to workers. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, workers may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits as well as additional damages in a separate personal injury claim.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a forklift accident, you should seek the advice of a qualified Missouri workers' compensation attorney as soon as possible. At Hullverson Law Firm in St. Louis, we represent injured workers in a broad range of warehouse injury claims and other types of forklift accidents.
