Representing the Victims of Crane Accidents in St. Louis & Across the U.S.

Every year, dozens are injured when a crane fails. Injuries occur not just to the men and women operating the cranes, but also to the workers on the ground—even those who are believed to be a safe distance from the crane. According to an Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) accident summary, most crane accidents happen when a crane boom breaks or malfunctions. Crane boom collapses are often caused by improper set-up, which can lead to shifting of the unbalanced load.

Sometimes a crane can be overloaded. If the crane’s weight limit is exceeded, the boom can buckle or the crane can collapse. Safety guards are necessary to prevent both the crane cable from slipping off the boom, and the cable holding the load from slipping out of the crane hook. These can be poorly designed or broken. In our firm’s experience, individuals operating the cranes can act recklessly without paying attention to others in the area, sometimes due to poor training.
