Construction Crane Accident Attorneys
Crane accidents are a common cause of construction injury. When the people responsible for construction worker safety improperly maintain the worksite, the likelihood of crane malfunction increases.
There are various ways for a crane accident to occur. For instance, an improperly secured load, operating the machine in unsafe weather conditions, contact with power lines, boom collapses, unsafe terrain, or cranes falling can all cause traumatic injury and even death.
Workers are entitled to a safe construction site. At Pulvers, Pulvers, & Thompson, our skilled personal injury attorneys assist clients injured in crane accidents by crane cargo loss or total collapse. Victims of crane collapse injuries may be entitled to financial compensation beyond workers’ compensation. We seek the maximum compensation to pay for lost income, pain and suffering, and medical expenses.

Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, when replacement parts can be delayed, team members may have extended absences due to quarantine and illness, and other related issues may arise, it can be easier for a slip-up to happen.
Construction workers as well as civilians are at risk of injury and death due to crane accidents, so it’s imperative that, despite any challenges due to fewer team members or lack of supplies, safety measures be completely upheld.
