Common Forklift Injuries
Forklift accidents can cause a variety of injuries. Crush injuries to the foot, leg, arm, and hand injuries are common. Back and neck injuries frequently result from forklift injuries. These injuries can include compression fractures of vertebrae, intervertebral disk injuries and spinal cord injuries leading to paraplegia and quadriplegia.
In addition to crush injuries, forklifts can cause degloving injuries. This can occur when a person is trapped between a fixed surface and the forklift.
When a forklift crushes feet, legs and arms, traumatic amputations can occur. If the foot, hand or extremity is saved, the injuries can lead to peripheral nerve injuries, such as complex regional pain syndrome. Serious injuries can lead to a chronic pain syndrome.
