Crane Accidents in New York are Increasing

According to records collected by both OSHA and the Department of Buildings, New York construction companies are getting worse, not better, when it comes to preventing dangerous crane accidents. In 2014, there were 231 reported construction accidents, many of them involving a crane collapse, a worker falling from a crane, or debris coming loose and striking a pedestrian. In 2015, the number spiked to 471 similar accidents. This rising trend is indicative of a problem that is not being addressed directly by construction companies. Injured parties should file a claim for compensation, not only to collect their own deserved damages but to also hopefully discourage construction companies from engaging in the same negligent behaviors of the past.

Compensation Following a Crane Accident

Parties injured in a crane accident will almost assuredly suffer catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord damage or a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The medical costs associated with the treatment of just one such severe injury can range well into the thousands. When all lifetime costs are considered, the grand total could easily exceed a million dollars. The New York crane accident attorney you choose to represent you in your claim must have the experience and skill to see your case to the end and fight for every last penny you deserve.

Forms of damages that may be applicable to your crane accident claim are:

  • Emergency medical attention
  • Hospitalization
  • Lifelong rehabilitation
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional pain and trauma
  • Lessened enjoyment of life

White Plains Crane Accident Lawyers the People Trust

A worker on a construction site who suffers an injury normally would use workers’ compensation to receive benefits and damages. However, the cause of a crane accident is often caused by the failures of multiple parties, which could open the possibility of filing a personal injury claim instead of workers’ compensation. Crane accidents in New York are also often catastrophic, harming people not employed by the construction company, such as passersby and drivers on the street below the crane.
