Crane Injury Claims

About Crane Injury Claims

Our experienced work injury solicitors will help you with any crane accident claims that you may have experienced. Cranes can be extremely dangerous machines that can not only cause harm to the people operating them but to anyone in the surrounding areas. Training and a licence are essential before operating such a big machine, and it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that anyone who requires it, gets it. Under the Health and Safety Act of 1974, it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the employees are as safe as possible in their workplace, limiting any risks.

Common Crane injury claims

There is a range of ways in which operating a crane can go wrong, therefore leading to an extremely dangerous accident, risking the life of the operator and anyone surrounding the crane. The most common crane injury claims include:

  • Mechanical faults in the crane, leading to accidents and dangerous injuries.
  • Taking a load too heavy to lift can occur when the operators aren’t trained correctly and do not know what the limits of the crane are. Or ignoring the limits and still operating the crane with heavy load and therefore risking the crane tipping.
  • Miscommunication and human error lead to collisions which can be extremely dangerous.
  • Uneven surfaces lead to the crane destabilising, with the risk of falls or apparatus falling, posing a risk to people at the worksite.
  • Objects falling due to being incorrectly secured on the crane. The crane operators and staff must be correctly trained and instructed on how to secure objects on a crane in the safest possible way.

We advise that these are just some examples of injury claims and causes of crane accidents, if you were injured in any way after a crane accident, we highly recommend that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side. Our experienced solicitors will ensure to get to know your case as well as possible so that you can come out with the best possible outcome for your case. We advise that the amount of compensation you may get depends on the amount of damage that was caused, whether it was physical, mental or financial, talk to one of our experienced solicitors to discuss your case.

Duty of Care

It is the employer’s duty of care to ensure that the staff on the site are always as safe as possible. The employer must implement a range of things to ensure the safety of employees, these include:

  • Implementing health and safety guidelines, following the Health and Safety Act of 1974 on the site, ensuring that things operate correctly and the possibility of risk to staff is as low as possible.
  • Maintenance of equipment, ensuring that all apparatus, equipment and machinery are always kept to a safe standard on the worksite.
  • Providing training, especially if they are operating machinery and equipment that requires specific training and a licence. If machinery is operated without training and licence, it is likely operated incorrectly, leading to risks of accidents in the workplace.
  • Ensuring that risk assessments are carried out regularly, avoiding any dangers in the workplace and making sure safety regulations are kept in place to a good standard.
