CRANE ACCIDENT LAWYER IN CALIFORNIA
Serving Victims Injured in Crane Accidents in Orange County Including Riverside Anaheim and Santa Ana
California fatal occupational injuries involving cranes are some of the highest in the nation. As our economy continues to grow, the use of cranes, become a necessity for developers throughout California.
According to OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration), there are approximately 125,000 cranes in operation today in the construction industry and up to an additional 100,000 in the general and maritime industries. Analysis by OSHA shows that the major causes of crane accidents include:
- Boom or crane contact with energized power lines
- Under the hook lifting device
- Overturned cranes
- Dropped loads
- Boom collapse
- Crushing by the counter weight
- Outrigger use
- Rigging Failures
Perhaps most shocking in statistics provided by OSHA is that crane operators frequently do not have the requisite qualifications to operate each piece of equipment safely. Thus, failure to properly train employees is a real danger not only to the crane operators themselves but to innocent victims hurt or killed by their negligence.
