Experienced Help After Crane Accidents
Construction site safety is a very important responsibility of landowners, contractors, building supervisors and government entities charged with communicating and enforcing regulations. In the course of construction, a crane accident may cause serious injury or death. Cranes may collide with power lines, or collapse for a number of reasons. Heavy materials swinging on cranes may fall or hit workers while still attached by chains.
Albert Buzzetti & Associates has been protecting the rights of construction workers and their families for more than 15 years. We handle workers’ compensation claims, claims of third party liability and wrongful death claims for surviving family members after a fatal accident. We help obtain compensation for medical bills, lost wages, long-term care, and pain and suffering. From our offices in Englewood Cliffs and New York City, we represent clients throughout New Jersey and the New York City metro region.
Workers’ Compensation And Liability After A Crane Safety Violation
When a workers’ compensation claim is an appropriate means of obtaining compensation, we work to protect our clients’ rights to full benefits after a crane accident at a job site. At the same time, we leverage the provisions of scaffolding-related labor laws to secure monetary relief for construction workers who have put their lives at risk in a construction capacity.
Knowledgeable Inspection Reveals Causes Of Crane Accidents
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a crane accident in New York or New Jersey, it is important to have a knowledgeable construction law attorney arrange for a detailed investigation into questions such as:
- Did construction site supervisors comply with OSHA regulations regarding crane design, construction, inspection and use?
- Was operator error a factor when a crane collided with a power line or severed a safety line, causing a worker to fall or be struck by materials hauled by the crane?
- Had all other equipment involved in the crane accident (cables, brakes, chains, straps, cement buckets) been properly maintained and inspected?
- Were loads properly secured? Was weight verified before lifting?
- Was the crane operated during hazardous conditions such as high wind?
