Crane Accident Compensation Claims
Cranes are essential to many construction projects, enabling materials to be lifted, moved and lowered with ease. However, when handled improperly or poorly maintained, cranes can be extremely dangerous. A wide range of severe or even fatal injuries can occur as a result of a crane accident.
A crane accident is any kind of accident at work, or in the local vicinity, involving an industrial crane. Cranes can come in a wide range of styles and sizes, all of which can be extremely dangerous when used incorrectly. In most cases, a crane accident will be due to the company or operator neglecting to show due care and attention.
Since the year 2000, there have been a total five major incidents involving crane tower collapses on construction sites in the UK.
If you have sustained an injury in the last three years, as a result of a crane accident, you could be owed compensation. To ensure you have the best chance of securing a payout, you should hire a trusted solicitor to pursue the claim on your behalf. Here at Tylers Solicitors, we have a specialised team of solicitors who have helped many people affected by crane injuries secure compensation.

What is a Crane Injury?
A crane accident could involve the crane itself falling over during operation. There is also the risk of poor operation causing injuries to workers and passers-by. If this lifting equipment is forced to move too great weight, or if the materials haven’t been attached correctly, it can lead to serious injuries. In addition to personal injury, there is also the risk of property damage which can be a major concern.
