Crane accidents on construction sites

  1. 1. Crane accidents on construction sites Ph. No.: ​718-619-4215, 914-357-8911 E-mail: whc@cooper-law.com www.cooper-law.com
  2. 2. Crane is a common piece of construction site equipment and it makes easy to transport thousands of pounds worth of materials. But the downside is that crane accidents can and do happen, so the equipment poses a risk for construction workers.
  3. 3. Causes of crane accidents The main causes of most crane accidents include: • Overturns • Collision with other equipment • Mechanical malfunctions • Hitting power lines • Mishaps during lifting
  4. 4. The main risk associated with a crane is that it can easily tip over. When a crane is set-up improperly, is carrying an overweight load, or is in operation on unstable ground, it can very easily topple over. Using a crane during windy weather conditions can cause it to tip over as well.
  5. 5. Crane accident injuries When a crane accident occurs, nearby workers are more likely to suffer injury – as opposed to the crane operator. Someone such as an ironworker, rigger, carpenter or even non-construction worker on the site is more likely to suffer injury during a crane accident.
  6. 6. Although most crane accidents do no result in death, serious injuries can occur. Crushed legs, broken bones, organ damage, burns and even permanent paralysis can occur following a crane accident. The injured person may face a lifetime of rehabilitation and long-term care.
  7. 7. If you are hurt in a crane accident through no fault of your own, then you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. The New York construction accident lawyers at Marvin A. Cooper, P.C . can help with your personal injury claim.
