Charleston, IL Crane Accident Attorneys

Injured in a Crane Accident in Central or Southern Illinois? We Can Help!

First developed by the ancient Greeks, cranes are still widely used today to hoist heavy materials, usually in the process of construction. These efficient machines have broadened the horizons of possibility in engineering and construction, but working with such massive equipment is very dangerous work.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), most crane accidents take place because of a collapse of the crane boom or a break or malfunction to the same. This can happen when the load that is being picked up is too heavy or too large for the crane.

The crane operator is responsible for calculating the load of the machine, and it is the responsibility of the operator’s employer to ensure that they have been provided with the proper loading weight. In most cases, negligent behavior is at the root of the accident, and the victims of crane accidents deserve to have their rights defended in court.
