Common Causes of Crane Collapse

Many construction projects require the use of cranes to lift and move heavy building materials. However, if a crane isn’t properly secured, it may collapse while in use, potentially crushing those around it, causing serious injuries such as traumatic brain injuries. People injured in these devastating accidents may be entitled to pursue financial compensation for their damages, though. At Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., we have years of knowledge and experience that we can put to work for those injured in construction site accidents in Denver, fighting to secure them the fair compensation they deserve.

Negligence and Crane Collapses

Construction companies are responsible for adhering to numerous important safety standards while working on projects, including the correct use and maintenance of cranes. This is because the following errors can lead to catastrophic construction site accidents:

  • Failure to stabilize the crane
  • Failure to inspect, maintain, and repair the crane
  • Failure to position the crane in a safe location
  • Failure to clear pedestrians, residents, or other individuals from around the crane
  • Failure to follow weight limit guidelines

When a person is injured in a crane collapse incident, the construction company at fault for the incident may be obligated to cover the individual’s medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.
