Crane operators and owners have been in the news due to serious crane accidents in New York City in recent years. See https://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20160205/tribeca/history-of-nyc-crane-accidents-over-last-10-years

Throughout the United States of America, more than 125,000 cranes are in operation at construction sites across America. Cranes are vital to efficient construction but are also very dangerous.

Types of Crane Accidents Handled by NYC construction accident attorneys:

  • a worker fall from a crane
  • crane collapse
  • boom of the crane falling or collapsing
  • crane dropping a load it was holding
  • crane overturning
  • crane rigging problems
  • failure to follow manufacturer’s instructions and specifications for use of the crane
  • uneven work surface under the crane; debris next to, under, and or around the crane
  • negligent crane set up
  • weather conditions may affect the stability of the crane such as high winds
  • selecting the wrong crane for the particular construction job being performed
  • overloading the crane with excessive weight
  • failing to maintain, inspect, and repair the crane regularly

Common Construction Worker Injuries Suffered in a Crane Accident

  • objects being hoisted or moved falling from the crane and striking workers
  • electrocution such as when a crane comes into contact with power lines
  • spinal cord injury or brain injury

In one recent year alone, over three hundred injuries and two hundred deaths were attributed to crane accidents. Crane Accidents account for more than twenty percent of all construction site fatalities. Cranes present a danger to the crane operator, other construction workers on the site, and even visitors, bystanders, pedestrians, inspectors, and others in close proximity. As the biggest piece of construction equipment on a job site, cranes cause more construction accidents than any other type of heavy construction equipment.

Cranes at construction sites will always present a danger even if all safety rules are strictly followed which usually is not the case. Crane Accidents result in life altering injuries.
