Most construction accidents give injured workers the right to collect workers’ compensation benefits. When a crane accident is the cause of your injuries, additional parties may be responsible because of the nature of how construction sites work. In many cases, a separate crane company is responsible for the crane as a contractor. Potentially responsible parties may include: (1) the company that maintains the crane, (2) the company that owns the crane, (3) manufacturers of crane components or (4) various other contractors on the worksite.
A personal injury claim gives you the right to recover additional compensation for your crane accident injuries. Workers’ compensation will only cover a part of your lost wages and provides no compensation for pain and suffering. On the other hand, workers’ compensation is a “no-fault” system. This means that you don’t have to show that anyone was negligent in causing the crane accident. In a personal injury case, we will work to show that someone else’s negligence caused the accident.
