Chicago Crane Accident Lawyers

On May 9, 2011, a crane at a South Side bridge at 99th and Genoa in Chicago tipped over, striking a construction worker in the chest and severely injuring him. This is but one example of the countless crane accidents that have occurred in and around Chicago and elsewhere throughout Illinois and elsewhere.

Details differ from one crane disaster incident to another, but outcomes of serious injuries or deaths are all too familiar. These mishaps serve as a reminder of the hazards of workers’ proximity to heavy machinery and equipment at construction sites. Some crane accidents may be considered “freak accidents.” In most cases, however, negligence by responsible parties is the underlying cause of a crane accident. A detailed investigation will help determine liability.

When a crane accident causes injuries, they are often severe, catastrophic or fatal. A traumatic head injury, a spinal cord injury, an amputation, a crush injury or broken bones will mean great expenses and losses for an injured worker (or passerby) and his or her family members.

Medical bills . . . just a lot of uncertainty, fear and just being taken great advantage of, my settlement is only a few dollars, less than $4,000, this is in no way due to lack of working hard and vigorously for me [sic].”
