Skid-Steer Loader Accidents

skid steer loader accident

Skid loaders or skid-steer loaders are compact machines with lift arms that are adaptable to a number of attachments such as forks, a bucket, an auger, a trencher, etc. Skid loaders are capable of performing all types of tasks around a farm but they are not without risk. In fact, the most common types of skid loader accidents are:

Rollovers Accidents: Rollover accidents commonly occur due to (1) a defective design of the equipment, (2) unstable, heavy loads or (3)operating on uneven ground.

Crushing or Pinning Accidents: Typically, these accidents occur when an interlock safety feature is bypassed and an unintended actuation of the lift arms occurs.

Run-Over Accidents: These can occur when an operator does not keep a proper lookout for others while operating the machinery or from unintended actuation of the machine.
