Houston, TX (June 2, 2019) On the 2nd of June, a workplace accident happened on Nunn Street, not far from Dixie Drive. Two men were working together in a forklift at the time of the accident.

Our thoughts are with the deceased victim’s family as they grieve over this devastating news.
Workplace Accidents in Texas
Unfortunately, at least 85 people are fatally injured in forklift accidents nationwide every year. When employees lose their lives at work, families have a right to file wrongful death lawsuits since employers are supposed to ensure that environments are safe enough for their workers. When employers fail to recognize faulty equipment and hazardous areas, they put their employees at risk of sustaining serious injuries or losing their lives.
