Philadelphia Crane Accident Lawyers
Cranes are some of the most dangerous pieces of equipment on a construction site. Their huge size makes them difficult to control, and just one wrong move can cause the cargo to drop or the crane to smash through a building, injuring and/or killing many people in the process.
If you have been injured or a loved one killed in a crane accident, it is important you contact an attorney as soon as possible. As a construction worker, you may be entitled to receive monetary damages in addition to workers' compensation. Call or e-mail the crane accident lawyers at MyPhillyLawyer for a free initial consultation.
Causes of Crane Accidents
According OSHA, cranes are involved in more construction site accidents than any other piece of heavy equipment. Unfortunately, many of these accidents could have been prevented if proper safety guidelines were followed and operators were adequately trained.
The attorneys at MyPhillyLawyer begin immediate investigations of your claim to determine why the accident occurred and who is at fault. We hold nothing back as we seek adequate compensation on your behalf.
Some common causes of construction crane accidents include:
- Improper crane setup
- Inadequate crane selection
- Using the crane outside of manufacturer's specifications
- Failing to clean up the area around the crane operation
- Failure to accommodate for weather and other less than ideal conditions
- Failure to know and understand the crane's operational limits
