Suits Filed for Truckers After Forklift Lifted & Dropped Their Truck—While They Were Inside

Attorney Trent Shelton of Arnold & Itkin has filed suit on behalf of two truck drivers who were seriously injured on the job. While our clients' vehicle was parked and unloading its cargo, a forklift operator picked up the entire truck and dropped it from a height.

The force of the drop was so strong that two of the truck's tires popped upon impact.

One of our clients, who was sitting in the driver’s seat of the vehicle, struck his head on the windshield and injured his back.

Our other client, who was lying down in the sleeper berth of the truck, was thrown to the ground and severely injured, 

Widely considered one of the most dangerous vehicles in the workplace, forklifts can cause catastrophic harm when operated without proper caution and care. Our injury attorneys look forward to seeking justice in this matter so our clients can rebuild and move on with their lives.

We filed these lawsuits in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana.
