Crane Accidents, Injuries, & Fatalities

Workplace Safety Representation

Crane accidents often result in serious injuries—even death. The reason that crane accidents are frequently so devastating is that they combine a variety of dangerous aspects, including high elevations, tremendous load weight, crowded areas, and little or no reaction time or warning signs that disaster is at hand. Crane accidents occur at a fairly regular rate, making them a very real danger to the men and women who operate, work, and live near crane equipment. Our St. Louis product liability lawyers have years of experience handling cases involving crane accidents.

Observing Workplace Safety Regulations

Cranes are dangerous and complex pieces of equipment. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) has regulations designed to protect workers from avoidable accidents that involve cranes. When employers, managers, or crane operators fail to observe these regulations, the results can be very severe and even deadly.

Causes of crane accidents in the United States include, but are not limited to:

  • Electrocutions from overhead power lines
  • Being struck by loads on cranes
  • Being struck by loads falling from cranes
  • Collapsing cranes
  • Being struck by booms / jibs on cranes
  • Falls from the crane
  • Being struck by the crane or its parts
  • Being caught in or between moving parts

Crane accidents often occur as a result of poor planning on the part of construction management crews, reckless operation, poor training, or defects in the crane equipment. When these severe accidents occur, you should seek the assistance of an attorney who has experience handling these complicated matters.
