Heavy machinery such as cranes and forklifts are typically used at construction sites. In an instant a worker may be pinned underneath a tilted forklift or hit by a swinging crane arm.
When these types of accidents happen, at first glance they may seem to be just a matter of chance with no one specific to blame. However, people operating these types of heavy machines are supposed to be trained and sometimes licensed to safely use such equipment. When a person operating a forklift or crane was not trained or was unlicensed, they put everyone at risk.
If you or a loved one has been serious injury in a forklift or crane accident, it is the responsibility of the construction company's insurer to help you with medical bills and lost wages.

Construction sites can be a dangerous place to work as employees are typically using heavy machinery, working on scaffoldings and exposed to dangerous elements. When an accident happens, do you know who to turn to?
Third Party Construction Accidents
Although most companies only have their employees working on-site, some industries require several companies to work together at one location. If another company has caused an accident and you were injured as result, its important to know what your rights are.
Excavation & Digging Accidents
In Texas and Oklahoma, excavation and drilling is commonly performed to reach gas, oil and minerals. Due to the use of large, powerful machines, workers are often put in danger of suffering serious injuries.
Know Your Rights
Construction sites are often booming with employees working for different construction companies, which is why it can be difficult to determine liability.
Often, many insurance providers will be focused on their own interests rather than taking care of the victim and the victim's family. These companies will provide as little compensation as possible.
