About crane accidents

There are many risks on a construction site but perhaps the most dangerous of all are those associated with working with cranes. Due to the size and weight of these machines, accidents are almost always serious, resulting in severe injuries for those affected and a lot of damage to a site.

Cranes are used in a range of industries, including construction and oil.  We’ve claimed for builders and other construction workers, as well as those who work in the wind energy and maritime sectors. We have expertise in dealing with all sorts of injuries in these sectors, and can make sure you get the help and support you deserve. 

Who is responsible?

Regardless of the industry you work in, your employer has a legal responsibility to identify any risks and take steps to prevent accidents from occurring. When it comes to using cranes, these steps will include:

  • Providing comprehensive training
  • Ensuring the vehicle is properly grounded
  • Regular checks of equipment and maintenance
  • Setting lift angle, weight and height before commencing work
  • Putting a visual signal plan in place to help a driver communicate with those on the ground

If you have been involved in an accident involving a crane and have suffered an injury as a result of your employer’s negligence, you are entitled to make a no win, no fee claim and use the compensation to help make a recovery.
