  • Common Causes of Crane Accidents

    Here are some of the most common causes of crane accident injuries:

    • Crane contact with electrified power lines
    • Boom or crane collapse
    • Overturned crane
    • Dropped loads
    • Crushed by counterweight
    • Rigging failure
    • Crane collision with building

    A number of factors can contribute to crane accidents. An attorney can help determine the cause of the crane collapse and who was at fault. Potential contributing factors may include the following:

    • Improper crane setup or maintenance
    • Lack of documented inspections or safety certifications
    • Unqualified crane operators
    • Failure to follow safety guidelines and operating instructions
    • Lack of guidance or supervision by the employer
  • What to Do After a Crane Injury

    If you or a loved one has been injured in a crane-related accident, you should:

    • Receive prompt medical attention for any injuries;
    • Report injuries to the employer or manager and note who was told;
    • Gather statements and contact information from witnesses who saw the collapse;
    • Take photographs of the injury, scene of the injury, and any relevant equipment;
    • Contact an attorney to discuss your legal options.

    Recovering compensation after an accident can be difficult. That’s why it’s important to track all medical expenses and keep a record of all available evidence (correspondence, photos, witness statements, etc.).

  • Liability in Crane Collapses

    Determining legal fault (or “liability”) in crane collapse lawsuits can be tricky. A successful case depends on proving that an employer, contractor, or equipment manufacturer breached a duty of care. Most individuals can’t prove this on their own, so they need an attorney with experience handling these types of claims.

    A good lawyer will gather and evaluate all available evidence to determine who was at fault, then build the strongest case possible in order to achieve a fair settlement or a favorable jury verdict.

  • How an Attorney Can Help

    An attorney can handle all the tedious aspects of a crane collapse lawsuit so the injured person can focus on getting better. They serve as an advocate, guiding the case from start to finish and making sure the client receives full and fair compensation for their injuries. These damages may include:

    • Medical expenses
    • Lost wages
    • Loss of earning capacity
    • Loss of life’s enjoyment
    • Pain and suffering
    • Funeral expenses

    A number of parties could be held liable for a crane injury, including construction site owners, general contractors, sub-contractors, and manufacturers of faulty equipment. An attorney can analyze medical records, the construction site, witness statements, and other evidence is required to determine liability. They can also determine which state and federal laws apply to each case.
