BWO successfully settled the case for a client injured in a forklift accident. Our client was injured while waiting for cargo to be loaded on his trailer by forklift.  The driver of the forklift was careless and he drove the forklift into our client causing injuries. The injury was painful, and the recovery long. The client required surgery and a long period out-of-work recovering.

BWO brought a personal injury lawsuit against the driver of the forklift and the owner of the property where the accident happened in Douglas County, Missouri. We were able to find insurance coverage available to pay our client’s damages. We took depositions of all those involved in the forklift accident, and we sent our client for a medical examination to evaluate his permanent injuries. We are happy to report that we successfully settled the case for our client for $210,000.
