Crane Accidents Inflict Devastating Injuries That Cause Long-Term Health Complications and Even Death
Both residential and commercial construction sites use cranes on a daily basis. Cranes are extraordinarily large pieces of heavy-duty machinery that must be properly operated and maintained. Our Philadelphia construction accident lawyers routinely help crane accident victims suffering from:
- Crushing injuries caused by falling cranes
- Neck and spinal cord injuries caused by falling off crane equipment
- Traumatic brain injuries
Family members may also be able to pursue a wrongful death claim if a loved one if fatally injured.
Who is Liable for Crane Accident Injuries?
There are a number of potential sources of liability in crane accident cases. You may be able to recover damages from construction company owners, contractors and subcontractors for
- Failing to properly maintain or repair cranes
- Failing to take proper safety measures for employees that work more than six feet above the ground
- Failing to issue sufficient warnings about potential dangers such as overhead power lines
If the crane involved in your accident was defective or manufactured improper, you may be able to bring a products liability claim against the manufacture and/or designer. Following any type of crane accident, it is important to seek legal advice about any possible claims for recovery. In many cases, applicable Statutes of Limitation require that you file a claim within two years from the date the incident occurred. Our Philadelphia personal injury lawyers have the legal knowledge and experience to investigate your claims and gather evidence and witness statements from the accident site. We aren’t afraid to go up against large construction companies and fully litigate your case from beginning to end.
