Case Settled

Contractor Injured by Forklift Operator Error

A contractor and a factory forklift operator were moving a heavy pipe when the pipe fell off the forks and landed on the contractor, fracturing his pelvis and preventing him from working for six months. The injured contractor and the forklift operator had conflicting versions of what occurred. Engineering experts reconstructed the accident, with our expert showing that the majority of the fault rested with the forklift operator. After mediation and a court-ordered settlement conference, the case was successfully settled for the contractor two weeks prior to trial.
