Heavy Equipment Accidents

At Thorpe Shwer, we appreciate that legal claims and lawsuits involving heavy equipment injuries can be financially catastrophic for a company. Our attorneys have substantial experience representing clients in connection with accidents involving heavy equipment such as forklifts, boom lifts, loaders, cranes, and fall-prevention equipment. We understand that successfully defending our clients’ interests in a case involving serious injuries or death hinges upon systematic preparation including interviewing witnesses, selecting effective experts, developing a comprehensive understanding of the mechanics of the accident, and identifying those regulations and/or statutes that may impact liability. Our involvement often spans from the development and implementation of strategic plans for pre-litigation investigation and evidence preservation to executing a strategic defense through discovery, trial, and appeal.
