Crane Accidents

Cranes are very common but extremely complicated pieces of equipment on construction sites. When they are improperly maintained or handled by untrained or unskilled workers, it can result in devastating accidents such as:

  • Boom Failure
  • Cable Failure
  • Contact with High-Voltage Power Lines
  • Crane Collapse or Topples Over
  • Falls
  • Improper Setup or Use
  • Overloading
  • Outrigger Failure
  • Workers Struck By Moving Load or Counterweight

Because cranes are frequently moving very large and heavy equipment, any accident can easily kill workers who are on the construction site. Those who are fortunate enough to survive can sustain catastrophic head, neck, brain, or spinal cord injuries that result in overwhelming medical bills as well as significant costs of rehabilitation.

An accident involving a crane could be the fault of an operator or other worker. However, even in cases in which a landowner or site manager may be negligent, a third party that owned or operated the crane could also be liable for injuries suffered by victims. Every construction project is different, and there are often multiple parties that are responsible for different aspects of job sites.

Many people injured on constructions sites will have to submit a workers’ compensation claim, but there can often be additional compensation available through lawsuits against third parties. Subcontractors, manufacturers, and other third parties will be insured, and the insurance companies for these individuals or entities will find any way possible to either deny liability for their clients or pay as little as possible to resolve any legal claims.
