What are the causes of accidents in loading docks?

We’re representing a client that was involved in a loading dock accident case in Harlem, Georgia, and he asked us to help investigate the cause of his loading dock accident. If you’re reading this, you may have questions about common causes of loading dock accident cases. I think it’s important to go back to square one as to where the freight originated. Was the freight that was being unloaded at the loading dock loaded properly, stored properly, and/or secured properly? Was the truck that brought the freight to the loading dock operating under federal and state standards? Were they operating within the policy and procedure of that freight company?

Another common cause of loading dock accidents would be logistics companies and whether they properly supervised the loading of the freight on the tractor trailers and containers. Inattentive or untrained forklift drivers can be a cause of a loading dock accident. Failure of equipment with forklifts and pallets and pallet jacks can also be the cause of an accident.
