Forklifts are indispensible pieces of material handling equipment that facilitate the movement of goods in warehouses, retail and industrial environments. Forklifts routinely move goods safely and efficiently, however, forklifts are also frequently involved in accident resulting in injury or death. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has stated that there are approximately 68,400 forklift accidents in general industry per year. Knott Laboratory engineers have investigated forklift accidents involving tipover or stability related accidents, dropped loads, pedestrian collision accidents, stand-up or narrow aisle forklift accidents and rough terrain forklift accidents, among others.
Our investigation of forklift accidents have ranged from the reconstruction of the accident to product liability evaluations for both plaintiffs and defendants. Knott Laboratory engineers apply physics based principles to the reconstruction of forklift accidents, and our mechanical, electrical, and safety engineering expertise to evaluate product liability claims.
