Forklift Wheel Explosion Seriously Injures Worker-Confidential Settlement
The Spence Law Firm has a long history of representing people who suffer serious personal injury in a dangerous workplace and in industrial accidents.
This case alleged that an employee of the steel fabrication plant negligently welded parts of the wheel together, that the plant over-inflated the machine’s tire just before the accident, and that the wheel rims were negligently secured together. With the rims negligently put together, improperly secured, and the tire improperly inflated, the forklift wheel exploded in the worker’s hands. The worker suffered permanent blindness and brain damage, and his young daughter lost a part of her father’s care and guidance.
The parties reached an agreement to settle the case before trial. The terms of the agreement are confidential.
