Cranes serve important roles in a variety of industries. They are used to load and unload ships, trucks, and trains, they are used to move equipment and materials, and they are used in the construction of buildings. Unfortunately, they do pose significant hazards to both the operator and other workers on the job site. If you have been injured in a crane accident, a North Carolina crane accident attorney can review your case and determine whether you are entitled to compensation.

A North Carolina Crane Accident Attorney Handling All Types of Crane Accidents

Crane accidents can happen for many reasons, including operator error, lack of training, or poor placement. Regardless of the cause, crane accidents can result in very serious injuries and sometimes death. We represent workers and their families who have been injured in all types of crane accidents, including the following: 

  • Collapse or tipping over
  • Improper assembly or disassembly
  • Contact with power lines
  • Dropped loads
  • Improperly secured loads
  • Overloading accidents
  • Inadequate safety protocols or missing safety equipment

Whatever the cause of the accident, you should contact a North Carolina crane accident attorney for help. They can explain your options and whether you may be entitled to compensation. 

Workers’ Compensation and Crane Accidents

If you have been injured in a crane accident while at work, you are most likely able to pursue a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation benefits can cover all of your medical expenses and up to two-thirds of your average weekly income. They are available to workers who are injured at work and while in the course of their work duties. 

Perhaps most importantly, these benefits are available to injured workers regardless of fault. In other words, you do not need to prove that your employer or anyone else was at fault in causing the accident. You can receive workers’ compensation benefits even if the accident was caused by your own negligence. 

Workers’ compensation benefits are available almost immediately. This means that you can get the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and replace your lost income without having to wait for weeks or months. This allows you to focus on getting the medical treatment you need without having to worry about paying your bills. 

How a North Carolina Crane Accident Attorney Can Help

You do not need to hire an attorney to file a workers’ comp claim. Many claims are denied, often because the worker did not submit the correct documentation or made some other mistake. A North Carolina crane accident attorney will know what needs to be done to ensure that your claim is approved with minimal delays. In other words, they can help you get your benefits as quickly as possible. 

If you have already submitted your claim and it has been denied, a crane accident attorney can help you file an appeal. You must take action immediately, however, to protect your right of appeal. As a result, we recommend that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
