Westchester County Crane Accident Lawyers

Cranes and heavy equipment are a part of many construction sites. People are used to working around them. There are safety protocols that have been developed to help ensure that workers are not injured when they are working near cranes and other types of heavy equipment. And yet, the risk of working around or with this type of equipment is so great that construction workers continue to get injured in crane and heavy equipment accidents

Some of the heavy machinery that causes accidents on construction sites includes:

  • Cranes
  • Backhoes
  • Bulldozers
  • Dump trucks
  • Forklifts

Being injured on the job causes a great degree of stress. Not only do you have to think about your health and your recovery, you also need to think about how this will impact your ability to earn a living. Are your injuries severe enough that you may have difficulty returning to your old job duties?

Depending on the circumstances of your accident, there may be two avenues for pursuing compensation:

  • Workers' compensation — In order to ensure that you receive the full benefits you deserve after an on-the-job injury, it is wise to secure skilled legal representation that understands the workers' compensation system and how to help you effectively navigate it.
  • Third-party claims — If your injuries were caused by someone apart from your employer such as a contractor, subcontractor or vendor on the site, you may also be able to pursue compensation from that party through a personal injury lawsuit.
