Investigating a Forklift Accident in Queens
There are many factors to consider when investigating a forklift accident. They would include determining if there was any malfunction of the forklift, in any component or system. What was the status of the service record for the forklift, i.e., was it being maintained on a regular basis? Were there known problems with the forklift that were ignored? Was the driver qualified to drive it? Was the forklift being operated properly?
Once the cause of the accident is determined, the party or parties at fault must be held accountable. It could be the property owner and the contractor. It could also be the manufacturer of the equipment, maintenance company, service repair company or other party.
