Information About Construction Site Accidents
Crane accidents are not the most common type of accident occurring on
construction sites but they are among the most dangerous. When they happen, they frequently
make headlines in the news. The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics reports
that there were a total of 72 fatal crane accidents in 2006, down from
85 in 2005 and 87 in 2004. The leading cause of death in crane accidents
is reported as being struck by a falling object, which accounted for nearly
half of all fatal injuries.
Falls from cranes were the cause of one out of five crane accident deaths, followed
in prevalence by being caught in or compressed by equipment or objects,
accidents occurring during the transportation of the crane, and electrocution.

Determining Fault in Job Site Injury Claims
Whether your accident claim involves a crane collapse, a crane tipping
over, or objects falling from the crane, it is important to investigate
the situation to determine who is responsible. You are most likely entitled
to claim benefits through
workers' compensation, but if it can be proven that another party is to blame for causing your
accident, then you may be entitled to recover monetary damages by filing a
personal injury claim. Contact us now to discuss your options and take the first steps
in your case!
