Injured in a Crane Accident? Call Shoop APLC

A crane is a dangerous piece of equipment. It can crash through its base or drop its load. Needless to say, if you are anywhere near such an accident, you will be shaken up if not injured. Where an injury occurs, the company operating the crane or the crane's manufacturer may be liable for damages.

Heavy equipment accidents such as this can be complex as far as establishing the cause of the accident and who the proper defendants are. Contact a crane accident attorney in Los Angeles, like those at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation, to seek compensation for your injuries.

Common Causes of Crane Accidents

Examination by a technical expert will reveal whether the crane was designed or built wrong. The accident may also be caused by operator error. In this case, the manufacturer may be liable for a failure to warn the operator of the dangers. The employer may be liable as well for failure to train the operator properly.

Common crane operator errors are:

  • Pulling from the side: Cranes are designed to pull up and down, not from the side over in the next bay.
  • Overloading: The crane is set up to only take the weight the crane can lift. Some operators then figure that if the crane will lift it, it is OK. But that does not take into account whether the floor the crane is sitting on can take the weight or whether the hoist can stand the weight. As a result, the crane may fall through the floor or, if the hoist breaks, drop the weight.
  • Pulling to the top: There is an upper limit switch to prevent the hook assembly from hitting the drum but what if the switch fails to work? The hook may hit the drum and drop the load.
