Crane accidents are a common form of construction injury. When the people responsible for the safety of construction workers improperly maintain the work-site the likelihood of crane malfunction increases. There are various ways for a crane accident to occur. For instance, the load might not be properly secured, operating in unsafe weather conditions, contact with power lines, boom collapses, unsafe terrain, booms collapsing, or even cranes falling.
At Pulvers, Pulvers & Thompson we believe that workers are entitled to a safe construction site. Our skilled personal injury attorneys assist clients injured in a crane accident by crane cargo loss or total collapse. As 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.
Why Should You Contact a Construction Accident Lawyer?
Insurance companies will downplay how serious your injuries are and will underestimate the amount of money you will need for medical procedures and for your future. An experienced construction accident lawyer in New York will be able to evaluate your claims and damages and determine how much you will need now and in the future. In addition an experienced construction accident attorney can guide you to determine if you are entitled to damage from any other negligent parties. Often a jury verdict will provide a higher settlement for personal injury cases and an attorney can help you through the process of determining if there is negligence and going to trial if necessary.
