Assisting Construction Workers Seriously Injured by Cranes in Pennsylvania

The Philadelphia Workers’ Comp Lawyers You Can Trust After a Collapse or Other Potentially Deadly Crane Accident

Cranes may be a necessary tool for construction workers, but that doesn’t make them any less dangerous, even when they are used on a daily basis. A defective crane, a negligent operator, a distracted worker – each of these scenarios can lead to severe injuries or a tragic death. At Larry Pitt & Associates, our team of experienced Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyers can help if you or your loved one was catastrophically injured in a construction site accident involving a crane. We are here to answer your questions and to help guide you through the process of collecting the benefits you need after a serious worksite injury.

How Do People Get Hurt by Cranes?

In 2014, more than 20 people died in accidents involving cranes. In fact, of every crane accident listed by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, not one resulted in anything other than a fatality. So while crane accidents may not be common, they are, based on the evidence presented, fatal 100% of the time.

The most common causes of these fatal crane accidents include:

  • Being hit with an object being swung from the crane
  • Being hit with objects falling from the crane
  • Crane collapses and boom collapses
  • Defective parts of the crane itself
  • Electrocution from contact with power lines
  • Failures with the rigging
  • Falling off the of the crane, or out of the control area
  • Poor maintenance and service performed on the crane before it is used
  • Snapping or swinging cables
  • Tipping or overturned cranes, either because of its weight or because of an uneven or unsecured ground where it is parked

Your Options After an Accident

If you survive the crane accident itself, you have a number of options for collecting compensation. At Larry Pitt & Associates in Philadelphia, our team of lawyers can help you apply for workers’ compensation benefits to cover your medical bills and your lost wages. If your accident led to permanent loss of disfigurement, workers’ comp in Pennsylvania will allot you a separate lump-sum compensatory amount for that loss. There are additional benefits available for the spouses and children of Philadelphia construction workers killed in a deadly crane accident, including an allotment for burial expenses. It can be hard to think about such things while you are in mourning, but that is why our team will handle the details to ensure the protection of your family, so you can focus on your grieving process.

If for some reason, the amount awarded to you is not enough, or if your injury was the direct result of a non-affiliated third party, we can also prepare a personal injury claim on your behalf. Should your injury render you unable to work permanently, we can walk you through the steps of applying for Social Security Disability. Whatever you decide to do, you can rest assured that we will treat your case with the respect it deserves. We collaborate with your doctors, keep your union reps informed, and work efficiently yet effectively to make sure that you can collect your workers’ compensation benefits as quickly as possible.
