Forklift Accidents

New Jersey Forklift Accident Attorneys

A forklift is often the most dangerous piece of equipment found in a manufacturing facility, warehouse, grocery store or construction site. Although heavy, its small size makes it prone to tipping over on uneven surfaces, and its speed can contribute to collisions with people and property. Proper maintenance and operator safety training are essential to minimize forklift accidents.

The New Jersey lawyers at Graziano & Flynn, P.C., represent people who have been injured in forklift accidents throughout South Jersey and southeastern Pennsylvania. Our clients include those who were hurt at construction sites, in industrial workplaces and in public venues such as warehouse stores.

Seeking Answers to Critical Questions

Our New Jersey forklift accident lawyers have an outstanding reputation for pursuing financial recovery from all responsible parties, including manufacturers of defective products, property owners and maintenance companies that failed to properly maintain equipment. You can see some of the forklift accident cases we have handled successfully on our verdicts and settlements page.

When handling these claims, we seek answers to pivotal questions such as:

  • Was the forklift driver properly trained in safety procedures? Were those procedures followed (for example, did the forklift operator sound a warning horn when approaching an area in which his or her vision was obstructed)?
  • Was the forklift equipped with a seat belt to prevent the driver from being ejected and crushed if the forklift tipped over?
  • Had the forklift been properly maintained? Were brakes, blades and cables inspected on a regular schedule to ensure its safe operation and that cables would not snap?
  • Was the forklift operator told by his or her supervisor to operate the forklift in a dangerous area or on an uneven surface?
  • Was the forklift equipped properly for the task? If not, did this lead to the forklift accident (for example, were the forklift blades too small to lift the equipment it was supposed to lift)?

It should be clear from these questions that forklift injuries require an experienced attorney to thoroughly investigate the cause of the accident in order to prove liability. A forklift collision with scaffolding, causing the scaffolding to collapse and people to be injured by falling products, may at first seem to be driver error but could be a case of improper maintenance. There may be several parties responsible for your injuries.

Client Reviews
Mr. Graziano had my best interests in mind when he represented me. He is clearly knowledgeable and handled my divorce quickly and efficiently. I'd hire him if I ever found myself needing a divorce lawyer again. Nadia
Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
Ron is an extremely trustworthy lawyer. Listen to what he says and have faith in him, you will be as impressed as I am! I couldn't have dreamed of a better outcome in my case. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to represent me, I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing lawyer!!
His staff is amazing as well!!
