Cranes are very dangerous pieces of equipment. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, an average of nearly 80 construction workers are killed each year in crane-related accidents. Many construction workers are also seriously injured as a result of crane accidents and collapses in Northern California.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a crane accident, you may be coping with overwhelming medical costs, long-term loss of income or emotional recovery from a tragic death. You should not be forced to deal with the consequences without the proper amount of monetary relief.
Common causes of crane accidents:
- Using the crane outside of manufacturer’s specifications
- Inadequate crane selection
- Improper crane setup
- Failure to understand the crane’s operational limits
- Failing to clean up the area around the crane operation
- Failure to accommodate for weather and other conditions
