Alabama Crane Accident Attorney
Injured on the job? We can help.
Crane accidents are one of the most serious types of
construction accidents, and cause many serious injuries and fatalities. At Morris, Cary, Andrews,
Talmadge & Driggers, LLC, we have achieved many significant victories
in serious injury cases, including a recent award of $21,000,000. We are
firm believers that those who have been injured due to an act of negligence
should be compensated fully for all damages, and we are committed to pursuing
the maximum possible.
Crane accidents can be deadly to any person working on the equipment or
nearby, as materials drop or the crane plummets due to a failure to correctly
stabilize it. Contact our firm for the professional counsel you need to
get compensation. Our Dothan injury attorneys formerly worked for insurance
companies and know exactly how they operate, which has allowed us to achieve
many high value settlements and verdicts. We are respected professionals
in the field of personal injury law.
Types of Crane Accidents in Alabama
Cranes are equipped with a hoist, wire ropes or chains and pulleys. As
cranes are a powerful tool used in all types of developments, these pieces
of equipment are frequently used throughout the duration of a construction
project. If a crane is not stabilized correctly on solid ground, there
is a high possibility that a serious accident will take place, killing
or seriously injuring the workers beneath or around it. A crane can be
improperly loaded beyond the weight capacity allowed, or some part of
the crane can fail while moving heavy objects.
Workers should not operate cranes when weather conditions are hazardous,
as the risks increase in high winds. If a worker survives a crane accident,
their injuries can be catastrophic. The injuries suffered often include
neck and back injuries, and
spinal cord injuries, or other life-threatening or permanent injuries. The worker will face
serious physical challenges in the healing process, and often no longer
has the ability to work, either for a long period of time, or permanently.
