Leading Cause of Crane Tip-Over

It may seem that crane accidents are rare and do not happen often. Unfortunately, this could not be further from the truth. The National Institute of Occupational Safety has been attempting to bring more awareness to crane accidents for years. Cranes can fall over or lose control of the load they are lifting: these forms of heavy machinery are very dangerous when not handled properly and can easily cause serious injury.

The leading cause of crane tip-over is when the crane is operating above the manufacturer’s maximum lifting capacity. When a crane lifts something heavier than it is designed to, it can easily fall over and damage everything in its path. The crane may also malfunction if it was not properly assembled or was not properly rigged.

When any of these incidents happen, nearby workers and pedestrians can be harmed by the crane or falling items. Depending on the weight of the objects or height that they fall from, these injuries can be extremely severe or even fatal.

Crane tip-over is often caused by some form of negligence. At Shulman & Hill, we can work to determine who may be responsible for your accident and collect the necessary evidence to support your claim for compensation.

Crane Injury Statistics

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics keeps track of fatal injuries that happen at work, including accidents involving cranes. The Bureau reported that the following were the most common injuries caused by a crane:

  • An uncontrolled hoisted load struck the victim
  • The crane made contact with power lines and electrocuted the victim
  • The victim fell from the cab of the crane
  • The victim was hit with an object falling from the crane
  • The crane’s mechanisms injured the victim

Most of the injuries have to do with tip-over—which can often be avoided by not overloading the crane. If you or a loved one was injured, contact our Bronx crane accident law firm. Our crane accident attorneys are very familiar with these incidents and will know the best steps to take to assist you and help with the claims process.

Am I Entitled to Compensation After a Bronx Crane Accident?

Construction companies are responsible for ensuring that their crane operators are thoroughly trained in running and operating these heavy pieces of machinery. Workers should also be instructed about the risks that come with cranes so they can be safe. There are plenty of safety guidelines to follow to keep things running smoothly.

Construction companies and contractors are also required to follow OSHA safety regulations. If there was an accident involving a crane at your workplace, it is possible that some of those rules were neglected.

Crane accidents can lead to serious injury, which may require not only immediate medical assistance but long-term treatment. This can be extremely difficult financially, especially if your injuries prevent you from returning to work. Whether you cannot come back to your job temporarily or permanently, the inability to earn a paycheck makes it harder to cover medical bills.

Our Bronx attorneys at Shulman & Hill can help you file for workers’ compensation benefits if your accident occurred while you were working, regardless of who was at fault. This can help cover your medical expenses and lost wages.

If a party other than your employer—such as a general contractor, subcontractor, or property owner—caused your accident, you may be able to hold them financially accountable for your injuries by filing a personal injury lawsuit. This can result in additional compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
