Forklift, Forklift Accidents, Forklift Lawsuits and Forklift Injuries – Resources and Injury Help.

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

New York forklift accidents are prevalent because of the demand for construction timelines to be met at the expense of safety laws and procedures.  It is this emphasis on speed of completion in the construction project and not safety laws (such as OSHA laws, labor laws and workers rights ) that leads to catastrophic injuries.

The types of forklift accidents include pressuring the forklift operator to work faster or causing the forklift to be overburdened by too large a load.  The result is devastating and usually results in the forklift to roll over. 

When a forklift accident happens or a forlift rolls over the injuries that a forklift operator or other workers sustain are many times serious and permanent in nature.

The types of injuries we typically see are crush injuries, fractures and broken bones, spinal cord injuries and sometimes paralysis or death.

If you or a loved one was injured in a forklift accident call the aggressive  Forklift Accident Lawyers at 1(800)WE-FIGHT for a free consultation.

Kelly: COP IN DEADLY CRASH TOTALLY WASTED

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

The headlines out of the Daily News today, June 3, 2010, says it all.

Officer Hoyoung Kim was off duty last month and drunk when he crashed his car in the Bronx.  The result, he killed himself a friend on the New York Police Department and injred four women. 

His blood alcohol level was 0.16, double the legal limit in New York of 0.08.  His fellow colleague who also lost his life, Office Edwin Paulino was also wasted with a blood-alcohol level of 0.21.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly informed reporters of the toxicology reports.  When asked by reporters if he was surprised the Commissioner replied “no comment.” 

The crash occurred on May 16, 2010 and the mother, Sabina Ramirez, 47, of two sisters Iris, 27, and Jazmin, 23, critically hurt in the crash on the Bronx River Parkway is beside herself.  They were taken to Jacobi Medical Center where they remain in critical condition.

Iris suffered a broken pelvis, two fractured legs and a spinal cord injury.  The other victims, Shirley Torres, 26 and Melina Ramirez, 27, also remain hospitalized in Jacobi Medical Center.

There seems to be no end to the negligence and recklessness of drunk drivers in the Bronx.  I expect more from a New York Police Officer and they must understand that they are held to a higher duty given their special place in our society as the perveyors of law and order.  It is a shame that a few bad apples have to ruin the reputation of the whole department.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident involving a drunk driver or any type of accident please call the car accident lawyers at 1(800)WE-FIGHT.
