When you have to operate a fleet vehicle as part of your job, that vehicle should be safe and well-maintained. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Poorly maintained and unsafe industrial vehicles cause a significant number of injuries every year. Motor vehicle-related incidents are consistently the leading cause of work-related fatalities in the United States. Thirty-five percent of occupational fatalities are associated with motor vehicles.
When industrial vehicle accidents happen, they can cause severe and life-changing injuries. Industrial vehicle accidents can include dump trucks, gravel trucks, forklifts, delivery trucks, light rail cars, railroads, tractors, backhoes, and other types of vehicles.
The risk of roadway crashes associated with on-the-job operation of motor vehicles affects millions of U.S. workers. If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in an industrial vehicle accident, consulting with an experienced workplace accident attorney is your best course of action.
Even though you may have been hurt in a work-related car accident, workers’ compensation coverage doesn’t always cover the full cost of damages, and it may not be your only source of compensation for your injuries. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be entitled to recover additional damages through other claims or lawsuits.
