Crane accidents can cause injury or death for construction workers, nearby residents, and bystanders. Unfortunately, many of these crane accidents are due to negligence, whether incorrect operation or faulty products. In many cases we see, crane operators even turn off key safety mechanisms that detect overloading and prevent load drops and other issues.
If you were injured in a crane accident, our firm is here to represent you. If you were injured in a crane accident as a construction worker, then you can seek compensation through worker’s compensation insurance. We offer experienced negotiation skills to get you fair compensation for your injuries and damages. In some cases, you may even be able to sue your employer for gross negligence regarding crane safety and crane operation.
If you were involved in a crane accident as a bystander or nearby resident, you generally need to either file a claim against the company’s insurance or file a lawsuit against the negligent company. Our team is here to help you determine your legal options for your case and fight for the compensation you need to recover.
Sometimes, crane accidents may even be due to defective cranes or parts. In these cases, you can often file a lawsuit against the manufacturer under product liability laws for their defective products.
Types of Crane Accidents
Approximately 44 people die each year in the U.S. due to crane accidents, and Texas is one of the top states for crane-related injuries. Crane operators are responsible for many different elements of crane safety, including things like ensuring the rigging is installed properly, that signal callers are in place and visible, and that loads are correct based on safety guidelines. An issue with any of these steps can lead to disastrous accidents.
Some of the most common types of crane accidents include:
- Crane tipping from overloading
- Dropped loads
- Hit power lines
- Being crushed by the counterweight
- Rigging failures
- Boom collapse
Any one of these accidents can leave victims seriously and even permanently injured. Many of these accidents even kill their victims, leaving their loved ones behind. Our team is here to fight for compensation after a crane accident.
