Do you have questions about your crane accident case?

Report your crane accident as soon as possible

We recommend that you report the accident to the relevant authorities, such as the construction site manager or supervisor, as soon as possible after a crane accident. Make sure to document the details of the accident, including the time, location, and circumstances leading up to the accident.


This documentation may be important later on if legal action is necessary. 


Reporting the accident is also essential for ensuring that the employer is aware of the unsafe working conditions that led to the accident and can take steps to prevent similar accidents in the future. If you have any doubts about how to report the accident, Schwartzapfel® Lawyers P.C. can help guide you through the process and ensure that your rights are protected.

Did you receive medical attention immediately following your crane accident?

Seeking medical attention is the most critical step after a crane accident. Even if you feel that your injuries are not severe, getting checked out by a medical professional is crucial. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent but can develop into more severe conditions over time. Additionally, your medical records will be important evidence if you decide to pursue legal action. 

It is important to follow all medical advice and treatment recommendations after a crane accident. This may include follow-up appointments, physical therapy, and other treatments. By following medical advice, you can ensure the best possible outcome for your recovery.

Witness statements can help establish the circumstances leading up to the accident, while photographs can provide visual evidence of the unsafe working conditions that caused the accident.

Crane Accident FAQs

What kind of evidence do I need to support my crane accident case?

To support your crane accident case, you will need to gather as much evidence as possible to demonstrate the cause and extent of your injuries. This can include medical records and bills, witness statements, photographs and videos, accident reports, maintenance and inspection records, and employment records. It's important to work closely with a personal injury lawyer who can help you gather and organize the evidence you need to support your case. Your lawyer can also conduct an independent investigation to uncover additional evidence that may not be readily available. By presenting a strong case with solid evidence, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries and related damages.

What role will I play in my crane accident case?

As the plaintiff in a crane accident case, you will play an active role in the legal process. Your personal injury lawyer will work with you to gather evidence and build a strong case to support your claim for compensation. You will need to provide your lawyer with any relevant information about the accident, including medical records, witness statements, and photos. You may also need to attend medical appointments and provide updates on your recovery. Throughout the legal process, your lawyer will keep you informed about the status of your case and any developments that may impact the outcome.

What kind of injuries are common in crane accidents?

Crane accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, some of which can be very serious or even fatal. Common injuries from crane accidents can include broken bones, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, burns, lacerations, and amputations. In some cases, these injuries can lead to long-term disability, chronic pain, and emotional trauma. Workers who are operating the crane or working in close proximity to it are most at risk for injury, but anyone who is in the vicinity of a crane accident can potentially be injured. If you have been in a crane accident, it's important to seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you don't feel injured, to ensure that any potential injuries are properly diagnosed and treated.
