Legal Assistance for Crane and Rigging Accidents Cases in San Jose

Crane accidents tend to be devastating, and the injuries that occur in these situations are often catastrophic. Was your loved one hit by a swinging object or an object that fell from a height when it was being hoisted by a crane at a construction site? Was your family member injured or killed while operating a crane? Whatever the scenario of a crane accident, you may be dealing with very serious injuries, including:

Besides pain and suffering, you need help coping with expenses and losses: medical bills, lost wage replacement, and other costs resulting from the injury. An experienced attorney is a valuable source of help and advice as you seek compensation. Contact the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III to schedule a free initial consultation and learn how we can help.

Workers' Compensation and Third-Party Liability

If the accident victim was engaged in construction work as an employee, they will most likely be eligible for workers' compensation. Our law firm can help you initiate the process of seeking compensation after a workplace accident. At the same time, we are prepared to launch an investigation to determine whether a third party — someone or some organization other than an employer — was at fault.

There may be third-party liability if, for example, the crane was being negligently operated by a subcontractor or if the crane manufacturer was negligent. A third-party liability case will allow you to collect compensation from more than one source. Identifying responsible parties (individuals, businesses, or other entities) will increase the likelihood that you can collect compensation that will address what the injuries are truly going to cost your family — including compensation for pain, suffering, and loss of companionship.

How Did the Accident Happen?

Did an accident occur because of a crane operator's error? Were products improperly stacked? Did a construction accident occur as the result of improper uploading and offloading of products such as steel girders? A prompt investigation can answer these and other questions, which may provide the key to obtaining the monetary compensation that you need to pay expenses and account for your pain and suffering.

Our team can look into the circumstances surrounding an accident, identify the person or parties who were responsible, and determine the best options for recovering compensation. We will gather all necessary evidence to demonstrate liability for your injuries, and we will work to ensure that you can recover the financial compensation you need and deserve. With our help, you will be able to move forward as you recover from your injuries. If necessary, we can also help family members pursue compensation for the wrongful death of a person who was killed in a crane accident.
