Representing New York City Construction Workers Injured In Crane Accidents
Construction crews performing work at substantial heights typically need a crane at some stage of the project. A crane is a complex piece of machinery that requires a great deal of care in all aspects of loading, operating and unloading. When negligence contributes to a crane accident that results in serious injuries to workers, they have the right to be fully compensated for their medical care, loss of income and other damages.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, the general contractor, subcontractors and others may all be held accountable in these matters. Identifying the negligent parties can be quite difficult, and most will attempt to place the blame on someone else. It is critical that you have a skilled attorney who understands crane accidents and can get to the truth so you receive the compensation you deserve.
