What Causes Crane Accidents?
There are many ways that crane accidents can occur. These accidents can be caused by defective machinery, unsafe work conditions, or operator error. In many cases, multiple parties may be responsible for causing the accident. For example, if a crane operator is not properly trained and does not have the experience needed to operate the crane, the crane manufacturer may be liable for the accident. In other cases, the employer may be at fault for not providing a safe work environment or for not properly training their employees.
The following are some of the most common causes of crane accidents:
- Defective machinery
- Improper training
- Improper maintenance
- Improper operation
- Improper site selection
- Violations of safety rules
If you or a loved one was injured in a crane accident, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
What Damages Can I Recover in a Crane Accident Case?
When a crane accident occurs, the victim and their family may need significant financial assistance. Our team understands the financial impact that these accidents can have on families.
We can help you recover compensation for all of the damages you have suffered, including:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Property damage
In many cases, the at-fault party's insurance company will attempt to minimize the victim's damages. If you are going up against your employer, they will likely claim that your injuries were not as severe as you claim. They will also likely argue that you are already "made whole" or that you are not entitled to any additional compensation because you are already receiving workers' compensation benefits. At KI Legal, our Manhattan crane accident lawyers can help you navigate through these challenges and show the insurance company that you are entitled to additional compensation.
