New York City Crane Accidents

acceladmin   July 21, 2017   Comments Off on New York City Crane Accidents

New York City has many ongoing construction projects and therefore, there are also many construction workers. This field of work isn’t the most dangerous line of work, but it also certainly not the safest. Accidents do happen, as unfortunate as it is. Sometimes, these accidents involve cranes, which can be seriously dangerous and life-threatening. Many times, crane accidents even result in the tragic death of a worker, even if it is not actually the person who is operating the crane itself.

There are also possible situations in which the injured person may not even be a construction worker at all. They may simply be a pedestrian walking down the street or someone sitting at a stoplight in their car. Cranes are such massive pieces of equipment that carry other massive pieces of equipment, so there could be an absolute catastrophe if anything were to fall when it is not supposed to.

If you have been injured in a crane accident, you may be experiencing severe, life-altering injuries. You may not be able to work again or drive again or may be paralyzed altogether. With a serious injury comes medical bills, lost wages, and the loss of enjoyment of life. If the crane accident happened due to the negligence of another party, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against whoever was at fault. The accident may have even happened because there was something wrong with the way the crane itself was constructed, which may then result in a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
