For any construction site that achieves any height, a crane is likely to be an essential tool for raising materials and tools to the levels where work needs to be done. There are different types of cranes such as mobile cranes, tower cranes and floating cranes that are useful in different situations. Each type of crane poses risks for both the operator and those nearby including workers and passersby.
There are several major types of accidents which involve cranes:
- Crane collapses — A tower crane collapsing threatens the safety of the operator and anyone nearby.
- Mobile cranes tipping over — Mobile cranes often need to operate on potentially less than stable surfaces putting them at risk of tipping over.
- Cranes dropping their loads — A variety of conditions could cause a crane to drop its load unexpectedly thereby injuring anyone below.
- Contact with power lines — The operator of a crane is at grave risk of electrocution if the crane inadvertently contacts a power line.
If you or someone you love was injured in a crane accident, securing the representation of an attorney who understands how to build a strong case against the responsible party is essential to your securing the full compensation that will be necessary for recovery.
