Compensation for Crane Accident Victims
Cranes are the workhorses of the construction world and are designed and engineered to lift and place very heavy objects. Even though crane accidents are rare, the nature of the tasks that they perform and the environments where they perform them increase the likelihood that an accident will happen. In addition, when crane accidents occur, workers in the area can be killed or suffer very serious injuries, devastating the lives of the victim and the victim's family. If you or someone you care for has been hurt or killed in a crane accident, the Walnut Creek crane accident attorneys at Balamuth Law, may be able to help.
Common Causes of Crane Accidents
There are wide ranges of factors that can cause a crane accident or create conditions where one can occur. When this happens, people working on and around the crane are at very high risk for very severe injuries that can cause fatalities or change the course of a worker's life forever. Some of the causes and conditions that contribute to crane accidents include:
