Skyjack Scissor Lifts – Safety Alert

Today the INSIDER EXCLUSIVE “Goes Behind The Headlines” in “SKYJACK SCISSOR LIFTS – SAFETY ALERT…to meet with Steve Gabrielson @ the Stephen Gabrielson Ltd law firm who successfully represented Troy Borg, when he was seriously injured at work by a Skyjack Model SJM3219 Scissor Lift that failed, causing the work platform to tip, and throwing him to the floor.

He sustained injuries to his face… right shoulder… low back, knees and wrists. He underwent surgery and presently has a spinal cord stimulator implanted in his lumbar spine.

Skyjack is one of the largest manufacturers of aerial work platforms, including scissor lifts. Steve’s law firm developed a very successful strategy to hold Skyjack legally responsible for its own product’s failure, and this strategy required extensive research and expert opinions by leading Metallurgical and Mechanical Engineers to successfully settle this case.

Today, for the first time on National TV, you will see Skyjack’s service bulletins that failed to acknowledge the potential widespread failure of the lift mechanisms on its Model SJM3219 Scissor Lifts.

In fact 2 years before this accident, General Casualty, alerted Skyjack of the failure and resulting injuries, but Skyjack did not take possession of the machine or assume financial responsibility for repairing it.

But probably “the most Important Alert” of this entire Insider Exclusive Network TV Special is that , even though Skyjack stopped production of these models in 1998, many of these same Models……” Skyjack Model SJM3219 Scissor Lift”…… are still in use, and have never been recalled or repaired . Skyjack has a protective order in place preventing disclosure of its design and manufacturing protocol and its remediation efforts.

So if you own or use Skyjack SJM3219 lifts, they need to be inspected to meet current safety requirements before anyone else might be injured.
