Injured During a Crane Accident During a Construction Job? It’s vital to choose a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer, such as Parker Scheer LLP.
Construction site accidents are very common, in part due to the inherent dangers that come from the machinery involved. And, in the field of construction, a crane is an essential piece of equipment. It is also a very dangerous piece of equipment when not maintained, assembled and operated with the required care. The operator of the crane must know that the crane is on sound footing before operating it and confirm the load capacity to be certain that the crane will not tip over. In addition, the operator of the crane must make sure as he is lifting the load that the crane does not come into contact with any power lines or other construction equipment or workers at the job site. Any contact between the crane and the power line could result in electrocution of the operator.
There are many safety regulations that have been put in place by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) related to the operation of a crane at a construction site. There are also regulations that require crane operators to be trained and licensed as such. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the state mandate the safety regulations to ensure that they are being properly followed and prevent potential crane accidents whenever possible.
The injuries suffered by the crane operator, other construction workers or members of the public who happen to be in the area during the time period of the accident can be extremely serious, and, in many cases, fatal. Even if the crane accident is not fatal, there is still a lasting impact of a permanent injury that the worker has to live with, operator or pedestrian. The injured worker may be paralyzed, have broken and/or fractured bones and may have a brain injury, all of which may require lifelong medical care and rehabilitation. In addition to the serious medical injuries, the injured worker may not be able to return to his regular job as a crane operator, construction worker, or, in the case of a pedestrian, their other regular work. The injured worker may be left jobless, and more importantly, without a way to make money. These workers may be able to be compensated for these injuries as well as lost wages. Because of this, it is important to contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss your crane accident case.
