Representing Construction Workers And Passersby In St. Louis Construction Site Crane Accidents
Injured construction workers are eligible for workers’ compensation and, in some cases, for damages from a negligent third party. To determine whether you are entitled to third-party damages, speak with our lawyers and we will review your case.
At Hullverson Law Firm, we have extensive experience with construction accidents claims, including accidents involving cranes and other heavy equipment. When a third party’s negligence on a construction site causes injuries, we can file a separate personal injury suit for additional damages. In a crane accident case, negligent third parties may include individuals or businesses such as subcontractors or manufacturers of defective crane components.

Get All Of The Compensation You Deserve
Crane accidents can be the result of a defective component, improper setup, negligent maintenance, improper loading of the cargo or crane-operator negligence. Workers on or near the crane can be injured by a collapse, falling objects or being struck by the crane’s load.
Workers who are in crane accidents may suffer catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries, back and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, amputations, crush injuries, suffocation, organ damage and burns. These injuries can result in temporary or permanent disability, or wrongful death.
Injured workers and their families will need significant financial compensation to cover their medical bills, lost wages and related losses. Workers’ compensation will provide some wage replacement and medical coverage benefits, but a third-party negligence suit can recover additional damages, including compensation for pain and suffering.
