What classifies a piece of equipment as an aerial lift?
An aerial lift is designed to provide people access to areas that would otherwise be inaccessible, or at least difficult to access. These areas are usually high above the ground. The aerial lift is set up for temporary access purposes like maintenance and construction. Because of the nature of the work environments where these trucks are found, aerial lift accidents are not at all uncommon.
Scissor lifts, articulating boom lifts, telescopic boom lifts, towable boom lifts, reach forklifts, carry deck cranes and personnel lifts are all examples of aerial lifts.
Our experts have designed dozens of aerial lifts and are often utilized to ensure that aerial lifts meet the necessary safety standards. Because our experts have such an in-depth understanding of aerial lifts, and the fact that several of our experts are certified safety professionals, they have been retained in a number of cases involving aerial lifts. An aerial lift expert witness should have all of these skills to provide their clients with the highest quality feedback on their case.
