Types Of Work Vehicle Accidents
Whatever triggers a work vehicle accident can cause serious medical harm, pain, and emotional distress. These are some of the most common types of injury-causing incidents involving heavy machinery:
Forklift and Lift Truck Accidents — Forklifts and lift trucks cause numerous injuries and deaths yearly. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the leading causes of forklift injury accidents are overturned forklifts, incidents where forklifts or their loads strike people on foot, vehicles crushing workers, and falls from the cabin.
Truck Accidents — Dump trucks, cement trucks, tanker trucks, tractor-trailers, delivery trucks, and other big rigs are prevalent at construction sites, oilfields, and other busy workplaces. These vehicles cause injuries by colliding with other vehicles, running over workers, and pinning people between two surfaces, such as the frame of a dump truck and its bed.
Tractor Accidents — Agricultural workers are frequently hurt or killed in tractor accidents. U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that more than 100 workers sustain fatal injuries each year. Rollovers and incidents where someone on the ground is struck by a tractor frequently cause injuries.

At The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, We Will Pursue Negligent Employers And Third Parties
Employers are responsible for setting safety standards at their workplaces to prevent unnecessary hazards to employees. People suffer injuries when they neglect to do so, and dangers are present. There are a few exceptions to the general rule that injured workers in California are restricted to pursuing benefits through workers’ compensation insurance and cannot sue their employers directly. Additionally, suppose a third party at the scene of your accident gave rise to your personal injury claim against them. In that case, you may be entitled to seek damages for pain and suffering that are not covered by workers’ compensation. Based on the specifics of your case, we can advise you on the best course of action.
