Philadelphia Crane Accidents and Injuries (Part B)

After a Crane Accident 

After you have been involved in a crane accident, you should do the following to protect your rights and help your Philadelphia construction injury lawyer prepare a solid case:
 

  • get medical treatment and maintain all follow-up appointments with your entire healthcare team;
  • tell your foreman or employer that you have been injured and make a note of the person's name and title;
  • get contact information from any witnesses to your crane accident; and
  • take photographs of injuries and the area where the injury occurred.


The construction company more than likely will file a Workers' Compensation claim on your behalf after a crane accident. Even so, those benefits may not be sufficient to cover all of your medical expenses. In this case, you should consult with a Philadelphia construction injury lawyer.

Third Parties in a Philadelphia Crane Accident

A Philadelphia construction injury lawyer will investigate the cause of the crane accident and determine whether the negligence of any third parties contributed to your injuries.

The third parties that could potentially be liable include:
 

  • Owner of the construction site - if the owner knew about harmful conditions on the site, they could be liable for a crane accident.
  • Sub-contractors and general contractors - they have a duty to make sure work is performed safely.
  • Equipment and machinery manufacturers - the manufacturer of a defective crane can be held liable for resulting injuries.

It's especially import that you consult with an experienced Philadelphia construction injury lawyer to learn about all of your legal options. This may include having an attorney negotiate better benefits for you through your Workers' Compensation claim or identifying third-party liability and explaining your options for filing a personal injury in addition to your Workers' Compensation claim.

As crane accidents can be very complex, considering the necessity of a thorough investigation coupled with legal deadlines, the sooner you speak with a Philadelphia construction injury lawyer, the better.
