Crane accidents tend to be devastating and injuries 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? Or was your family member injured or killed while operating a crane? Whatever the scenario of you or your family members crane accident, you may be dealing with very serious injuries:
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.
If the accident victim was engaged in construction work as an employee, it will probably be a workers compensation case. 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 your employer — was at fault.
There may also 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 what the injuries are truly going to cost your family — including compensation for pain, suffering and loss of companionship.
Was it the crane operators error? Were products improperly stacked? Was the construction accident a 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.
No amount of money can bring back the normal life that you and your loved ones enjoyed before a devastating crane accident injury. However, financial compensation can allow you to live with dignity, with all the aids and accommodations that you will need to be safe and comfortable as you learn to live with a disability.
