Types of Crane Accidents in Alabama
Cranes are equipped with a hoist, wire ropes or chains and pulleys. As cranes are a powerful tool used in all types of developments, these pieces of equipment are frequently used throughout the duration of a construction project. If a crane is not stabilized correctly on solid ground, there is a high possibility that a serious accident will take place, killing or seriously injuring the workers beneath or around it. A crane can be improperly loaded beyond the weight capacity allowed, or some part of the crane can fail while moving heavy objects.
Workers should not operate cranes when weather conditions are hazardous, as the risks increase in high winds. If a worker survives a crane accident, their injuries can be catastrophic. The injuries suffered often include head injuries, neck and back injuries, and spinal cord injuries, or other life-threatening or permanent injuries. The worker will face serious physical challenges in the healing process, and often no longer has the ability to work, either for a long period of time, or permanently.
