Were You Involved in A New York Crane Accident?

Put 40+ Years of Experience on Your Side

According to the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), there are approximately 125,000 cranes operating throughout construction zones in the United States. There are thousands more operating in maritime and general industries.

While cranes help workers perform essential tasks, they are also very dangerous to operate and can result in accidents can be deadly and lead to permanently disabling injuries in both workers and pedestrians nearby.

Causes of Crane Accidents in New York City

Some of the leading causes of crane accidents include:

  • Cranes running into energized power lines
  • Overturned cranes
  • Loads dropping from cranes
  • Boom collapses
  • Crushing by the counterweight
  • Damage from the hook-lifting device
  • Falls from cranes
  • Rigging failures or outrigger use issues

While compliance with OSHA safety standards can help reduce the risk of these injuries occurring, the sad fact is that workers in the construction industry will always face the risk of injury due to the inherently dangerous equipment.

What to Do After Your Crane Accident

When you or a loved one is injured in a crane accident, you may be entitled to benefits or financial recovery. Depending on the unique circumstances of your case, you may be eligible to pursue additional legal action.

You have two options for pursuing compensation after your accident:

  • File a workers’ compensation claim. As a covered worker, workers’ compensation will be provided for any on-the-job injury you may suffer, regardless of whether a mistake or negligence was involved. These claims can include payment of medical bills, limited compensation for lost wages, and disability benefits when necessary. Workers’ comp death benefits may be provided if a worker was killed in the accident.
  • File a personal injury or wrongful death claim. While you can’t file an injury or wrongful death lawsuit against an employer (workers’ compensation is an exclusive remedy), you can pursue legal action against any third party that was responsible. This may include the manufacturer of the crane or similar parties.
