Crane Accidents

Fort Lauderdale Construction Accident Attorneys – (888) 499-6206

The vehicle is enormous, requires precise control, and moves tons of supplies, equipment, and so forth. A single mistake can be devastating.

You have may have the right to pursue workers’ compensation benefits, or possibly even compensation through a personal injury claim.

To begin, all you need to do is dial (888) 499-6206 to request a free case evaluation.

Injuries Suffered in Crane Accidents

The dangers of a construction crane are varied, and especially prevalent when safety is not the top priority. The injuries that you might suffer in a crane accident are also varied in return.

Some of the worst crane accidents can cause:

  • Crush injuries from falling objects or collapsing structures
  • Spinal cord and brain injuries from falling off a crane
  • Electrocution injuries when servicing the crane
  • Lacerations and disfigurement from snapped cables

Remember: You should always notify your employer after you get hurt on-the-job, even if you do not qualify for workers’ compensation. Failing to tell your employer about the accident or injury could invalidate your claim to any sort of benefits afterwards.

Personal Injury Claim or Workers’ Compensation?

A workers’ compensation claim is available to employees covered by an employer’s workers’ compensation insurance coverage. It should guarantee financial assistance for medical bills and missed wages after a workplace accident. Oftentimes, this is not the case, as insurance companies try to minimize their own costs by denying, delaying, or undervaluing a claim. Our Fort Lauderdale workers’ comp lawyers can help you file your claim after a crane accident and stand up for your rights during an appeal, if needed.

In crane accident cases where you are not a worker who does not qualify for workers’ compensation, the answer might be filing a personal injury claim instead. When there is egregious negligence involved in your accident carried out by a third party, you might be able to file a personal injury claim in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. For example, if your employer refuses to provide you with a safety harness and you fall off a construction crane, then you might be able to bring a lawsuit against that employer.
