Workers' Compensation Case: The Faulty Forklift
While shelving products in a warehouse, an employee was significantly injured while operating a faulty forklift in this particular workers’ compensation case. The products he was shelving fell on him, resulting in paralysis and leaving the victim in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. The attorneys at Accident Recover Team recovered the maximum workers’ compensation benefits for the victim available under Kansas law, plus additional compensation for his lifetime medical and home assistance costs. We also filed a claim against the forklift maintenance company. All in all, ART’s efforts amounted to a seven-figure recovery in this workers’ compensation case.
