This case involves an industrial worker who was standing on a ground loading trailer helping to load the flatbed with long pieces of PVC pipe. The pipes were being transported to the trailer by a front end loader with forks. Several pipes were positioned on the forks hovering over the pipes already on the trailer. The worker motioned and yelled for the operator to stop so he could retrieve straps to tie down the hovering pipes. When his back was turned to the loader, the operator dropped the load which rolled into plaintiff’s back and propelled him off the trailer. The plaintiff suffered significant arm and shoulder injuries as a result of the incident. An expert in forklift operation was sought to review the case and opine on the safety standards of the industry.
