Workplace injury attorneys at Arnold & Itkin LLP filed suit in Lamar County, Texas against an employer who failed to provide a safe work environment to its employees. Our client was struck by a fork lift carrying a heavy load because his employer, Load Trail LLC, failed to implement safety measures and properly supervise its own fork lift drivers.
As a result of the fork lift’s impact, the client suffered serious injuries to his neck and back. It’s common for back and neck injuries to keep employees from going back to work for extended periods of time; many of these injuries also make chronic pain more likely to become an issue. Recovery, rehabilitation, and quality treatment is vital to restore quality of life.
Employers are required to operate equipment safely—and ensure that new operators are properly and thoroughly trained. There’s no excuse for employees to hurt each other from lack of training, especially when they’re operating something as dangerous as a fork lift.
Arnold & Itkin looks forward to helping another injured worker get the compensation he deserves and the medical treatment he needs.
