Forklift Accidents: When An Injury Changes Your Life
Every year, a surprising number of workers are injured in forklift accidents at construction sites throughout Connecticut. Although they are heavy, forklifts are small, which makes them prone to tipping over on uneven surfaces. Further, their speed contributes to collisions with people or nonmoving objects.
