Common Causes of Crane Accidents

OSHA has identified the four most common causes of crane accidents on construction sites:

  • Electrocution
  • Crane collapse
  • Being struck by a load
  • Being caught between the crane and a fixed object

These accidents can result in serious injuries, including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and death.

Who Is Liable for a Crane Accident?

When a crane accident occurs, it is important to determine liability. In some cases, a construction worker who is injured on the job site can file a workers’ compensation claim. However, in many cases, the injured worker can file a third-party liability claim against the person or company that is responsible for the accident.

Third-party liability claims can be filed against:

  • The manufacturer of a defective crane
  • The company or person who is responsible for maintaining the crane
  • The company or person who is responsible for inspecting the crane
  • The company that is responsible for training crane operators
  • Another contractor on the job site

At Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLC, we can fully investigate the accident and determine liability. We will then pursue all available compensation for you.

Let Us Help You Fight for Fair Compensation

After a crane accident, you may be contacted by an insurance company that wants to settle your case. While it may be tempting to accept a quick settlement, doing so can be a big mistake. In most cases, the insurance company will offer you far less than what your case is worth.

Our crane accident attorneys can review any settlement offer you receive and help you determine if it is fair. We will fight for maximum compensation for all your damages, including your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in personal injury law and know what it takes to win. We have a proven track record of success, with millions of dollars in compensation recovered for our clients.
