Operating big machines is one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States. Crane accidents are some of the most devastating, according to the Center for Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), with roughly 44 crane-related deaths annually in the United States. These accidents occur either because of a defective product or negligent operation by a crane operator. At Morgan & Morgan, we believe those who caused your injuries should be held responsible. If you or a loved one have sustained a crane injury, we want to help you. Learn more about how our attorneys can assist your accident case by completing our case evaluation form today.

Who Is Liable for My Injuries?
When determining who is liable for your injury case, your attorney will help you properly work out who or what could have been the cause and why it was not prevented. In the case of injuries caused by a big machine, like the crane, a few possible scenarios as to who is liable for your injuries come into consideration.
The negligent operation of a crane can cause harm to the operator and those below, especially in high traffic density locations with pedestrians who can be severely injured. When it comes to claiming negligence liability, you may be able to claim that certain individuals, who at the time of your injury were recklessly operating the crane or not following protocols during work, can be held liable for any damages you've sustained.
Another cause for injury could fall under the negligent installation or creation of the crane by the manufacturer or distributors. Defective products are those that fail to work according to the consumers' expectations. When a construction crew or other professionals initially install the crane, it must be done correctly. If done without proper care, instructions, or with faulty parts, serious injury can result—leaving the manufacturer or the distributor responsible for allowing a defective product on the market.
Am I Entitled to Compensation?
You could be entitled to compensation for your injuries if you have been harmed due to manufacturer error or negligence. However, you also might ask yourself how much your injury case is worth. In order to properly calculate the value of your injury case, your attorney will need to break it down depending on a few key factors. These factors include but are not limited to the circumstances and severity of your injury, and the limits on your insurance coverage, among other things. Once enough information is obtained, your attorney and legal team can better estimate how much you could be eligible to receive. Most commonly, injury victims can receive compensation for the following:
- Lost wages;
- Medical expenses;
- Past & future medical bills;
- Reduced quality of life;
- Pain and suffering.
At Morgan & Morgan, we understand how intimidating it may seem to take a stance against major manufacturers and those whose negligence has caused you harm. However, we know that with the right legal team on your side, you can get the justice you deserve. That's where we come in.
How Can an Attorney Help My Case?
For over 30 years, at Morgan & Morgan, we have been getting victims just like you get the justice they deserve for their injury cases. When you decide to hire our attorneys, they will get straight to work on your injury case. Once they have reviewed your initial case information, in order to ensure you are getting the proper compensation you need for your injuries, your attorney and legal team will gather and review any documentation that could be relevant to your case. This can include but is not limited to police reports, medical records and bills, and your insurance policy information.
Your attorney will then work with medical professionals and other experts to further establish a strong claim for your injury case. Your attorney will also alert the defendant's legal team that Morgan & Morgan is representing you. Next, your legal team will attempt to reach out to the defendant's attorney to try and settle your case outside of court. If the negotiations prove unsuccessful, your attorney will be more than prepared to represent you inside the courtroom.
