Were You Hurt In A Crane Accident?
At The Law Offices of Joseph J. Cariglia, P.C., we know that construction sites are inherently dangerous places to work. In recent years, there have been several highly publicized crane accidents. These accidents, many of them crane collapses, have caused serious injuries and left workers needing help. For more than 50 years, our attorneys have helped injured workers get the money they need to heal and get back to work.
Handling All Crane Accidents And Injuries
Serious workplace injuries, including brain injury, back injury and broken bones, occur when individuals are operating or working around large machinery. The most catastrophic injuries related to crane accidents occur in the following situations:
- Crane collapse
- Electric shock
- Falls from cranes
- Falling objects
Whether you are an injured crane operator or another construction worker who was at the wrong place at the wrong time, you deserve compensation for your work-related injuries.
Seeking Compensation For Your Construction Injuries
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your construction accident, you may have available to you two types of compensation:
- Workers’ compensation: Employers are required to carry insurance against work site injuries. If you were injured at work, you can file a claim for compensation through your employer’s insurance company.
- Third-party claim: If your crane accident injuries were caused by a negligent third party such as a contractor or subcontractor, you may be able to file a personal injury claim for monetary compensation.
Our lawyers will fight hard to obtain the full and fair compensation you need to help recover from your injuries.
