Top Causes of NYC Crane Accidents
The cranes used on New York construction sites weigh many thousands of tons and can tower over a hundred feet into the air. Crane loads can weigh as much as 20 tons, and any accident involving a crane is likely to be catastrophic, causing death, head and brain injury, spinal cord damage and paralysis, fractured bones, and other devastating injuries. Survivors are often unable ever to work again or provide for their families.
Common causes of crane accidents include:
- Crane collapse
- Improper setup during the “jumping” phase
- Contact with overhead power lines
- The crane load strikes a worker or passerby
- Inappropriate operation of the crane
Unlike most job site accidents, crane injuries are not always caused by the negligence of a contractor or employer. Equipment manufacturers are sometimes at fault, as are the parties responsible for installing, setting up, inspecting, operating, maintaining, and supplying the cranes. When you entrust our firm with your case, we will investigate the accident and determine who is liable before vital evidence can be lost or destroyed. Victims are often entitled to far more substantial benefits if all the responsible parties are brought to justice.
