A variety of businesses use forklifts to transport heavy equipment and other cumbersome products. Individuals must use caution when operating forklifts, but even with proper training and experience, accidents, which may cause personal injuries or even fatalities, may happen. Workers who sustain serious injuries may not only suffer from debilitating pain, they may also lose income when they’re unable to work.
