Crane accidents

Choosing An Experienced Massachusetts Crane Accident Lawyer

The lawyers at Breakstone, White & Gluck of Boston are experienced in representing victims of crane accidents involving serious personal injury and wrongful death. A crane is a powerful piece of equipment. When someone is injured, a general contractor, sub-contractors or property owner may be liable.

A crane is an important piece of equipment for any construction site, with the capacity to transport thousands of pounds of materials. But many things can go wrong. When cranes are improperly set-up on unstable ground or forced to carry an overweight load, they can tip over, ejecting the operator and injuring other workers. A crane can also tip when the operator is forced to operate in adverse weather conditions.

Another serious risk is cranes colliding with other pieces of construction equipment. This can occur when a contractor is not properly managing all the construction activity on a site.

Many crane accidents are fatal. When a worker survives, the physical injuries may include crushed legs, paralysis, broken bones, head injuries, organ damage, burns and permanent scarring. These injuries are life-changing and almost always prevent the injured from engaging in future work. The injured may have to spend time in a rehabilitation center and long-term care.

If someone has been injured in a crane accident, they may be able to file a claim against a negligent property owner, general contractor or sub-contractor. These parties had a responsibility to be knowledgeable about the site conditions and provide safe working conditions for crane operators, workers and the public.
