Forklift Accident Lawyer
in Charleston, WV

We Can Help You File a West Virginia Lawsuit

If you use a forklift on the job or work in close proximity to forklift operators, there is no room in your work environment for negligence. Any safety violation or equipment defect can lead to serious workplace injury or death.

At Warner Law Offices, PLLC, our lawyers represent West Virginia workers who were injured in forklift accidents due to the negligence of others. We also represent family members in cases of wrongful death. If you are injured on the job, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and plan to deliver results. You may be entitled to compensation beyond workers’ compensation benefits.

Workers’ compensation benefits are limited, and do not allow you to recover compensation for damages such as pain and suffering. You may have the right to recover additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the party responsible for your injury.

Forklift accidents may occur for a variety of reasons. Here are a few examples:

  • Tip-overs caused by unsafe equipment
  • Uneven warehouse floors
  • Carrying too heavy a load
  • Injuries caused to bystanders due to safety violations

Our attorneys will investigate and review the circumstances of your forklift accident and determine if you would have a right to sue the negligent party.

Can I Sue My Employer?

In exchange for providing workers’ compensation benefits, West Virginia employers are generally protected from being sued by employees for accidents occurring on the job. However, there are exceptions that can come into play in cases of forklift accidents. If the accident was caused by the “deliberate intent” of your employer, by defective equipment, or by someone who does not work for your employer, you would have the right to sue. You would also have the right to sue if your employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance.
