Who Is Liable for a Crane Accident?
In most personal injury cases, the injured person must prove that the other party was negligent. Crane accidents are no different and liability is usually determined by whether or not the crane operator or the construction company reasonably followed safety protocols.
In most cases, the crane operator, the construction company, and the crane manufacturer are all liable for the damages caused by a crane accident.
What Are the Most Common Crane Accidents?
The most common crane accidents involve construction workers and occur during the construction process. Crane accidents involving construction workers occur when workers are either too close to the crane or when they are not wearing the proper safety equipment.
Some of the most common crane accidents that involve construction workers include:
- Crane tipover accidents
- Crane collisions
- Crane entanglements
- Crane electrocution
- Crane fires
Crane accidents can also occur when the crane is being used for construction or demolition. In this case, the crane operator may not be following safety protocols or may be under too much pressure to complete a project on time.
