Houston Forklift Accident Lawyers

Forklifts are immensely powerful pieces of equipment that any construction or industrial worker will tell you can make life immensely easier. That said, they can also be one of the most dangerous tools on a job site, depending on how they are handled. If they are improperly maintained, an operator is mistrained or a piece of the machinery is defective, they can cause injuries that are severe, debilitating or even fatal.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a forklift accident, it is important to understand your rights and to what you may be compensated.
