Backhoe Accident Attorneys
Construction sites are inherently dangerous. The size and weight of most construction equipment can lead to catastrophic injuries if not handled properly. If you have been injured or a loved one was killed in a crane accident, we recommend that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
The Corpus Christi crane accident attorneys at the Edwards Law Firm have a great deal of experience guiding clients through the process of workers' compensation claims and personal injury lawsuits. Whether you are a worker on a construction site or an innocent bystander who was injured in a crane accident, it might be possible to recover monetary compensation for lost wages and medical bills from the at-fault party. Even if you are an employee entitled to workers' compensation, you might be able to recover additional compensation. Contact a lawyer at our firm to learn more about your options.
Crane accidents can result from several situations, including:
- Improper training
- Operator distraction
- Failure to recognize poor weather conditions
- Improper maintenance
- Defective parts
- Using the crane outside of the manufacturer's specifications
Cranes are enormous, slow-moving and unwieldy pieces of equipment. If the crane operator is not properly trained or is distracted the resulting accidents and injuries can be devastating. Trust our firm to investigate your accident and fight for your full and fair monetary compensation.
