Cranes are one of the most dangerous pieces of equipment on a construction site.
They cause more accidents than any other equipment.
Cranes are large, difficult to control and
any miscalculation as to the movement of the crane can cause the injury or even death to someone close by.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) has set forth standards to ensure safety on construction sites.Unfortunately, construction companies do not always abide by these requirements in the interest of time and convenience.Failure to abide by OSHA standards can cause extreme injuries to workers.Violations include:
Improperly setting up the crane
Failing to choose the appropriate crane for the job
Failure to be aware of the crane’s operational limits
Using the crane outside of manufacturer’s specifications
Failing to clean up the area around the crane operation
What Our Clients Say
“I am the owner of an insurance agency. I was seriously injured in an automobile accident. As you can imagine being in the insurance industry, I know many law firms. For my personal case, I wanted the very best law firm. I knew of the sterling reputation of the Rothenberg Law Firm for their competence, integrity and ability to get me all the compensation that I sought and needed. My high expectations were more than fulfilled. During the course of the litigation there where a number of settlement offers which the firm promptly and dutifully communicated to me and urged me not to accept. They were right. In the end they got me an enormous amount of money for my injuries and loss of earnings; far more than I could have ever imagined. This is a super law firm and I unequivocally recommend them to everyone that has been injured.”
"Working with The Rothenberg Law Firm was a very easy and straightforward process. They actually surprised me with the extra time and additional attention to my case. I'd recommend them to anyone."
