Protecting the rights of individuals injured in crane accidents
Construction sites are inherently dangerous due to unstable conditions, heights, dangerous tools, and the wide array of heavy machinery used. One piece of machinery that can be particular dangerous is a crane. Because a crane is so large and difficult to maneuver and because cranes often move large pieces of material, any accidents involving a crane can cause serious injury to anyone involved.
Construction workers can be injured by cranes in numerous ways. An extremely heavy crane arm can swing into a worker and even them in between the arm and another object. Additionally, if a crane arm is allowed to come in contact with a power line overhead, serious electrocutions may occur. While construction workers are regularly involved in crane accidents, they are not the only ones who are at risk of injuries. Passersby on foot or in cars may also be injured by an accident involving a crane. For example, a construction worker operating the crane may lose control, causing the crane arm to drop a large piece of material onto whoever may be below. Anyone injured in a crane accident that was caused by negligence should discuss their legal rights with an experienced Dallas personal injury attorney today.
