The operation of cranes, while necessary for building some of the tall structures we use, is fraught with danger. If a poorly-maintained cable snaps, or a careless operator swings the boom too far, or some other unfortunate occurrence takes place you can be severely injured. If this has happened to you, you need to ensure that your rights are protected and you are compensated for your injuries.
Cranes are used for moving massive pieces of building material into position. With objects of such weight and density the chance for injury is very high if the crane is defective or the operator is poorly trained or negligent. To guard against accidents the companies that use cranes are supposed to follow specific procedures while operating these machines. Further, they are supposed to ensure that the operators have been properly trained and are competent to safely operate the cranes. An operator who is habitually careless or sloppy in his or her work should not be allowed to operate a dangerous machine such as a crane and the company that allows this to happen can be held responsible for his or her mistakes.
When procedures are not followed and someone suffers as a result the companies which own the cranes or employ the operators can be held responsible.
