San Francisco Warehouse Injury Attorneys
Our warehouse accident lawyers have more than 30 years of experience investigating the causes of workplace injuries to determine who was really at fault and who is responsible to pay for your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering.
- Forklifts are one of the more dangerous pieces of equipment on most job sites. Forklift accidents can occur in warehouses and warehouse stores, on loading docks, and on construction sites where they move heavy pallets of materials and product. Forklift’s move fast; forklift operators must always be aware of objects and people around them. Injuries happen when forklifts hit people, knock workers offloading dock platforms or hit boxes that then fall on workers.
- Cherry pickers and bucket trucks typically don’t cause injury to others around the machinery but the worker in the cherry picker may be injured because of dangerous conditions on the property on which he or she is working. In one government liability case we handled, a worker fell from the cherry picker when a culvert beneath the machine collapsed.
Of course, faulty maintenance or a defect in a machine can also put workers in danger.
Workers’ Comp Or Personal Injury Claim?
If you were injured on the job, you can and should file for workers’ compensation through your employer. However, if your injuries were caused by a defect in the machinery, by an unsafe condition on a property, or by a work crew that is not operated by your employer, you may be able to bring a second claim for financial recovery.
Workers’ compensation covers a specific set of expenses. A personal injury lawsuit is not confined to only those expenses. You can receive more compensation if you are able to bring a third-party claim. Talk to a lawyer at our office who can explain your rights.
Do not lose your right to sue. By filing a claim quickly, you will protect your rights. Contact our San Jose law office today to speak directly with an attorney about your personal injury case. All of our fees for personal injury cases are contingency based — this means you pay no attorney fees unless we recover compensation for you.
