However, an un-skilled operator can cause serious and extensive damage to the property and persons around them. A party who operates such equipment without proper training can cause serious bodily injury to innocent by-standards.

Liability for Forklift Injuries – Filing a Workers Compensation Lawsuit

Liability for injuries depends on certain factors; however it is possible to hold the employer of the operator and possibly the property owner liable for the injuries. In such instances the employer can be liable when they fail to take steps to ensure that the operator is qualified. Additionally, through theories such as vicarious liability an employer is generally held liable for the negligent or wrongful conduct of his/her employee. Although certain limitations may apply it is important to have your case reviewed by someone who is qualified and experienced.

What is the Average Value of Forklift Accident Claims?

The answer to this question will always depend on the specific details surrounding your claim. What is the average value for workers hit and injured by forklifts? The answer to this question will depend on whether there is a workers’ comp claim – as claim values are often limited by insurance policy limits. Even if your claim has a high value, you could receive only a portion of the value of your claim based on low policy limits. Even when dealing with a restricting policy limit, a lawyer can help you get the highest recovery possible.

What is the average value of a forklift accident involving injured shoppers at Costco, Home Depot, Lowes, Target, or Walmart? These large retailers typically have large insurance policies that cover them in case of incidents on their property. If you were a shopper at one of these stores and sustained injuries after a forklift accident, you could expect a payout. Cases involving minor to moderate injuries could be work anywhere from $150,000 to $550,000. Cases that involve severe injuries can be worth approximately $750,000 – these cases can be worth up to one-million dollars under some circumstances.
