Common Injuries During Crane Accidents

The is a variety of injuries you may suffer if you were part of a crane accident. There is a number of potentially dangerous situations that come specifically with heavy lifting on a crane. Some of the common injuries that you may have after a crane accident include:

  • Various types of head injuries,
  • Concussion,
  • General bruising, cuts and lacerations,
  • Spinal injuries, fractures, and damaged limbs if you do happen to fall from a great height,
  • Crush injuries.

Common reasons for a crane accident are either a large number of materials falling from a height on top of the person or the operator of the crane falling out of the crane. Both of these can lead the victim to deal with complex injuries. Since they can be so serious, it is important to have the right legal representation on your side.

An attorney can help you define the liable party for the accident, be it your employer or manager for not providing a safe space or proper training, or a faulty crane that is not working properly due to a design flaw.

Some injuries can happen with employees who are in the way when equipment has become detached while it is being lifted, which due to the weight of the machine can be fatal. If you or a loved one have been hurt in a crane accident, seek medical help right away. Once urgent care has been provided, it is important to contact a personal injury lawyer sooner rather than later. An attorney can assist with the next steps and be your best source of legal advice.

Accidents with a Crane Involving Workers

According to the Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974, there is a duty of care required for employers when it comes to their employees. This may potentially cover most causes of an accident with a crane. Although, it is first important to pinpoint the liable party.

With the help of the right legal team, you may be able to determine who was negligent when it came to the crane accident. Pinning the liable party will be helpful when filing a claim, knowing who may be responsible to pay out compensation for the injuries you sustained during the accident.

Having legal representation can benefit you greatly and will enable you to have time to recover. Besides determining the liable parties, an attorney can help with the paperwork and calculating your losses, past and future.

How to File a Crane Accident Claim

After an accident, it is important for you to file the claim correctly. The best way to file a claim and get compensation is to prove negligence on one or more other parties.

It is necessary to find evidence to help support the incident. Evidence like pictures of the crane and its location, statements from witnesses, medical statements you obtain directly after the accident, and more can help prove if the duty of care has been breached. Our attorneys can investigate this and help you figure out if you have a strong case for the issue, or assist in building a solid case. It is best to reach out to an attorney sooner rather than later.
