Cranes are a vital and integral part of many construction jobs. Unfortunately, when a crane operator is careless and does not follow the utmost safety protocol, a devastating crane accidents can be the result. Cranes can be placed on ground level or may be stationed on elevated structures. Cranes may rise to as high as 100 feet in the sky and lift loads weighing ten to twenty tons. Therefore, any injury resulting from a crane accident is usually a catastrophic injury such as brain damage, spinal cord injury, paraplegia, or death.
Some reasons why crane accidents occur are:
In 2010 and the years preceding, New York City was hit with many unfortunate crane accidents. The chief crane inspector in New York City admitted to receiving more than $10,000 in cash bribes to issue false inspection and crane operator license reports. In March of 2008, seven construction workers were killed in a serious crane accident on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
OSHA estimates as many as 125,000 cranes are being used at various construction projects across America.
