Crane, Equipment And Machinery Accidents
Cranes can often play a major role in any construction site. They operate most of the time carrying heavy cargo, moving their gigantic structures while practically rubbing against adjacent buildings and structures. Sometimes cranes do strike another building, smash a truck or drop a heavy load due to operator error or equipment failure. When that happens, workers and other people can get seriously injured, or even killed.
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a crane accident, you should hire a workers’ compensation attorney as soon as possible. If your accident was the result of negligence from a third party, happened due to an equipment failure, or was the result of signal man or operator error, you may be entitled to additional compensation.
At Alan M. Tanenbaum, P.A., we will seek to successfully pursue claims on behalf of victims of crane accidents and their families. Contact us to speak with a crane accidents attorney about your case.
