Learn Your Legal Options in a Crane Collapse and Other Crane Accidents
The size, weight and magnitude of a crane make it a dangerous piece of machinery. Crane operators require lengthy training to minimize the risk of crane accidents. Even an experienced, properly trained crane operator can be injured in an accident. If you are a worker at a construction site, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for the injuries you sustain. Our crane accident lawyer knows that a crane collapse can be dangerous to those near construction sites, too. Our experienced team serves clients injured by an accident involving cranes and will help identify the type of legal claim that best fits the circumstances of the accident.

How a Crane Collapse Can End in Tragedy
On July 6, 2021, a man was killed in Philadelphia when a crane collapsed at a worksite. In the tragic accident, the crane was nearly 75 tons when its weight came crashing down, trapping the 55 year-old man. He died from his injuries at the hospital. At the time of the accident, the crane operator was also in danger. He was also sent to the hospital for medical evaluation.
Crane accidents may not be common, but they can be deadly because of their enormous size and weight. This is why it’s important to work with an attorney skilled at handling injury cases that were caused by negligence, and that may have been fatal.
