Crane Collapses

Crane Collapses

Construction is an inevitable part of living in a big city and is generally necessary for growth to continue. That being said, construction sites can pose a serious threat to the safety of workers and passersby alike, especially when a crane collapses. Due to the tremendous size and weight of the objects that these cranes move, even a minor mistake can cause a crane to collapse. Not only do these incidents often leave individuals with catastrophic injuries, but they can also impose serious financial burdens on victims and their families.

Causes of Crane Collapse

While construction sites may be inherently dangerous, certain actions and failures to act can cause the collapse of a crane to be more likely, including:

  • Mechanical failure
  • Structural failure
  • Improper set up of crane
  • Errors in use of crane
  • Moving an object too heavy for the crane
  • Operating crane in poor weather conditions

Generally, crane collapses are caused by the negligence of another party. When this is the case, it is necessary to take legal action against the responsible party in order to hold them accountable for their negligence. However, taking on a legal case alone can be nearly impossible, making the assistance of an experienced attorney essential.
