Crane Injury Attorneys in Indianapolis

Sound Representation for Victims of Serious Workplace Accidents

There are over 200,000 cranes in operation in the United States on construction sites, maritime locations, and other places. These cranes tower over buildings and skyscrapers, placing workers in extremely high, precarious situations. Even with the most stringent safety precautions in place, workers’ lives are still in the balance every day. No piece of equipment or machinery is perfect—things break and malfunctions happen. Every so often, we hear of a crane boom collapsing or a rigging failure that drops materials from dangerous heights.

If you or a loved one have been injured in any type of crane accident, the lawyers at Wagner Reese may be able to help you recover the damages you have lost. In an accident as severe as these often are, it is likely that the injured party will be unable to work again and they will require compensation to cover medical payments, lost income, and more. Sometimes, these damages will be awarded in temporary amounts but depending on the severity of the injury, the damages awarded may be permanent.

How Crane Accidents Occur

Federal- and state-mandated safety standards are meant to protect crane workers and prevent accidents. However, when these guidelines are ignored or corners are cut, workers can be severely injured. Even when safety measures are carefully followed, defective equipment or human error can lead to disaster.

Crane accidents can and do occur in a variety of ways. Some examples include:

  • Boom failure and/or collapse
  • Contact with power lines
  • Overturned cranes
  • Defective or faulty equipment
  • Dropped loads
  • Rigging failures
  • Counterweight crushing
  • Falls

In many cases, crane accidents happen because proper crane maintenance was overlooked. In other instances, lack of training or improper supervision leads to serious accidents. Sadly, workers tend to suffer very serious, catastrophic injuries and many die as a result of crane accidents.
