Crane and Conveyor Accident Injury Attorneys
Construction crews work around heavy machinery for moving earth and equipment on a job site. Wet and unstable soil, improper site preparation setup and defective equipment mean that mega-ton cranes, vehicles and conveyor equipment can cause a catastrophic accident at any time. As a construction worker, you already know that you are putting your life and livelihood into the hands of others responsible for the safe setup and operation of the large equipment on site.
Construction employees injured in crane accidents or conveyor accidents are generally covered by workers' compensation insurance. If you have been injured in a construction site accident, you are probably eligible to file for workers' comp benefits. But you may also be entitled to seek additional compensation from the negligent equipment operator, subcontractor or property owner liable for your injuries. These claims are called third-party claims and are necessary to hold negligent parties responsible for fully compensating you for your injuries and losses.
