Who Is Responsible for Crane Accident Injuries?
Doan Law Firm Crane Accident Attorney Team and Your Rights
On average, more than 40 workers are killed in crane accidents each year in the United States. Other innocent passersby are killed in crane collapses as well. In addition, many other workers and other innocent victims of crane accidents are injured annually. In many cases, injuries are severe and life-altering. If you or a loved one have been injured in a crane accident, The Doan Law Firm at (800) 349-0000 is here for you – 24 hours a day.
Parties Responsible for Crane Accidents
One of the greatest challenges associated with pursuing a crane accident injury claim is identifying all responsible parties. The reality is that in most crane accidents, multiple parties can be at fault legally for a victim’s injuries and losses.
Examples of responsible parties in a crane accident case include (but are not limited to):
- Construction company at project site
- Subcontractor that is hired to operate the crane in question
- Subcontractor that assembled the crane at the site
- Company that owns the crane
- Enterprise that provides maintenance on the crane
- Crane operator
- Entity that trained the crane operator
- Owner of building being constructed or otherwise worked on
Again, this truly is only a partial list of possible crane accident responsible parties. The bottom line is that only a well-trained, experienced crane accident lawyer is in a position to promptly identify any and all potentially responsible parties. You can contact this type of legal counsel by calling The Doan Law Firm now or at any time convenient for you at (800) 349-0000.
Common Types of Crane Accident Injuries
The types of injuries that can be sustained as the result of a crane accident run the proverbial gambit. Some of the more frequently occurring crane accident injuries include:
- Bodily injuries from being crushed by crane load or the equipment itself
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injury
- Bodily injuries from being crushed by collapsing crane
- Bodily injuries from fall from crane equipment
Accountability and the Compensation You Deserve in a Crane Accident Case
Justice and accountability in a crane accident case is only possible through suitable financial compensation. You best ensure your ability to obtain the compensation you deserve in your case by retaining a diligent, experienced crane accident lawyer (like a member of the legal team at The Doan Law Firm).
Each crane accident injury case is different. Each claim includes different injuries, damages, and losses. Understanding this fact, there are certain types of injuries, damages, and losses associated with crane accidents that our firm regularly seeks financial recovery for our clients:
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Bodily injuries
- Disability (short-term, long-term, or permanent)
- Mental anguish and emotional distress
- Property loss or damage
If the parties responsible for crane accident are deemed in a trial to have been particularly reckless, you may be entitled to what are known as punitive damages. This is additional compensation for egregious conduct on the part of the parties that legally are responsible for a particular crane accident.
