Forklift accidents can cause permanent and fatal injuries.
They can also be prevented if site managers obey regulations and take basic safety precautions. This legal brief features attorney Michael Warshauer, who recently recovered a $7 million judgment on behalf of a warehouse worker who lost a leg in a forklift accident.

I'm Rob Rosenthal with AskTheLawyers.com and this is an AskTheLawyers.com legal brief. Stand up forklifts are used in large warehouses throughout the United States. Unfortunately, thousands of operators have suffered crushed legs that lead to amputations and what should have been simple collisions. It is estimated that more than two workers a month suffer these terrible injuries. The addition of simple and readily available safety devices could prevent almost all of these injuries.
Attorney Michael Warshauer of the Warshauer Law Group of Atlanta has experience with these types of cases. He recently secured a judgment of more than $7 million in the case of a worker whose left leg had to be amputated after she was injured by a defective forklift. Attorney Warshauer says:
"When a worker is injured in a forklift accident of any kind, that person or their family needs to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. Even if the person can get worker's comp or other benefits, and even if they or someone else thinks the accident is their fault, they may have additional legal options they are unaware of and the employer and insurance company may not be looking out for their best interests.”
Thanks to the tireless efforts of attorney Michael Warshauer and his team at Warshauer Law Group, victims of dangerous forklift designs are being compensated for damages, including lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, disability, medical costs, and pain and suffering.
