Crane Injury

About Crane Injury


Though safety and training are highly regulated and enforced due to the dangers that operating and working near cranes impose, critical and fatal crane accidents are far too common. Often, accidents are a result of negligence, whether someone’s not paying close enough attention while you are in a dangerous position or someone is not following best practices. Employing the services of an experienced attorney can assist you in identifying if preventable negligence is to blame for your accident, as well as identifying the responsible party.

Potential Responsible Parties

Cargo Leaders

If loaders overload the crane, the cargo can fall and strike unsuspecting workers.

Crane Operator

A plethora of complications could arise from crane operators even slightly deviating from standard operating procedures, which could easily result in accidents and serious injuries.

Equipment Manufacturer

The equipment manufacturer could be held liable if a defective crane part is found to be the root of a crane accident. Though the manufacturer may not be aware of the defect, they can still be held liable in court.

General Contractor or Subcontractor

When investigating a crane accident, it is also important to know how much training was provided to the workers on-site. If sufficient training was not provided, the general contractor or subcontractor may be held liable for resulting injuries.

Site Operators

Since it is a site operator’s job to make sure that job sites are running smoothly and procedures are followed appropriately, they may be held liable if they approved the use of out-of-date, recalled, or defective equipment.

When dealing with serious injuries in the workplace, especially those critical and sometimes fatal injuries involving cranes, it’s crucial to have experienced, dedicated legal representation willing to fight for you.
