Queens crane accident lawyer Keetick L. Sanchez releases a new article (https://accidentlawyer-queens.com/construction-accident-attorney/new-york-city-crane-accident-lawyer/) about the most common causes of crane accidents in New York City. According to the lawyer, cranes are often the most dangerous piece of equipment on any construction site.
“Despite their own massive weight, many crane accidents are caused by collapsing or buckling under excess weight. Each crane is subject to stringent operating procedures and weight limits, but when construction contractors, supervisors, and owners ignore safety limits and operating procedures, it can mean serious injury or even death for those working on the site or in the vicinity,” says the Queens crane accident lawyer.
In the article, attorney Sanchez says that according to OSHA, approximately 45 % of crane accidents are caused by cranes or booms coming in contact with energized power lines. Crane accidents can also be caused by improper crane use, overloading, crane failure, miscommunication among workers, and negligent construction supervision.
Attorney Keetick Sanchez also discusses the most common injuries sustained in crane accidents. These injuries can include fractures, burns and chest injuries, back injuries as well as amputations, degloving, paralysis, spinal cord injuries, internal bleeding and organ damage.
The crane accident lawyer says that sometimes the injuries from crane accidents can be life-threatening and cause pain and suffering for victims and their families. According to the lawyer, victims of crane accidents can be entitled to compensation for their injuries. Workers' compensation benefits may be available, especially if the victim was a worker at the site. A worker's compensation claim could require that the victim sue their employer.
Attorney Sanchez also mentions in the article that if a crane accident was caused by negligence, the at-fault party would be responsible for all costs related to the injury. If the injury is fatal, the relatives should not be responsible to pay for funeral and medical costs.
Lastly, the accident lawyer explains that if someone is a victim of a crane accident, they should seek the help of an experienced accident lawyer right away. Having a skilled lawyer may be able to help the victim receive the compensation they deserve.
