LAWYERS FOR CRANE ACCIDENTS
A sizable part of the tens of thousands of employees hurt or killed on construction sites each year are victims of crane accidents. Because of the nature of crane-related labor, persons injured in crane accidents usually have severe injuries, and many of these incidents also cause fatalities. Although powerful tools, cranes can tip over, clash with other equipment, interfere with electrical lines, or even cause debris to fall if carelessly operated.
Eight hundred eighteen people lost their lives in accidents involving cranes in only those ten years, with 72 fatalities occurring in 2006. 42% of these fatalities resulted from falling objects striking the victims. In addition, falling objects, becoming caught in or squeezed by objects, transportation accidents, and coming in touch with electrical currents contributed to another 20% of injuries.
Unfortunately, carelessness, poor management, defective design, and other preventable causes are to blame for many human injuries and fatalities associated with crane accidents. Regular crane inspections, extensive operator training, and appropriate supervision are necessary. For construction workers and others walking by crane sites, breaking established practices can have disastrous results.

Construction workers, electricians, metalworkers, welders, cutters, and crane and tower operators are just a few examples.
The survey also found that incidents in the industrial and mining industries added to the overall death toll, with the private construction business accounting for the most significant percentage of crane-related fatalities.

• Unfavorable weather circumstances and a failure to prepare for them
• Contact with power lines; improper or inadequate crane setup; debris close to the crane; and failure to use the crane following the manufacturer’s instructions are all examples of improper crane operation and selection.
