Crane Accident Lawyer
The city skyline is full of cranes towering above the buildings. They symbolize the vibrant construction industry that is an integral part of the city’s economy. They also represent one of the most dangerous aspects of high-rise construction—getting materials to the level where the work takes place. In addition to the high-rise cranes that loom over every city, are the many other types of cranes, hoists, and lifts that are used on construction sites. When something goes wrong, the consequences can be catastrophic and lead to serious injury and death.

Causes of Crane Accidents
People are injured in crane accidents when:
- They fall from a crane
- They are hit by a swinging load
- High winds push the crane over
- A crane contacts live electrical wires
- The crane collapses
- The load is dropped
- Counterweights malfunction and fall
Events such as these can be the result of inadequately trained or inexperienced personnel, inadequate inspections, improper assembly or poor maintenance. When these situations lead to accidents such as these, negligence is usually a factor.
Why File a Claim After a Crane Accident?
People who file claims and lawsuits because of crane accidents are seeking compensation for their medical and surgical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other costs of being seriously injured. They may have suffered a head or brain injury, a spinal cord injury resulting in paralysis or other life altering injury. They may never work again or be able to live independently. Not only do they deserve compensation because of another’s negligence, they need it so they can live their lives as fully as possible.
