Experienced work injury law firm Workplace Injury Lawyers in Dallas and Fort Worth

In a recent year, OSHA found that 937, or 21.4%, of work-related deaths in 2015 were in construction. Approximately two-thirds of these deaths resulted from what is commonly known as the “Fatal Four:” falls, being struck by an object, electrocutions, and accidents involving being caught between equipment and other objects. With the prevalence of construction injuries and fatalities, it is crucial to understand what laws are in place to keep you protected.

Crane-related construction accidents in Dallas

In 2018, Texas was among the five states with the most crane-related injuries, along with Illinois, Florida, California, and Pennsylvania. Many things can potentially go wrong when operating a crane or working near a crane, including:

  • Electrocutions could occur when the crane boom or cable accidentally contacts a power line.
  • Crane collapses, often involving uneven or unstable surfaces when overloading the crane.
  • Being struck by a crane boom, mainly when dismantling the boom.
  • Accidents that involve being struck by loads that come loose from the crane.

Due to the massive size and loads of most cranes, the injuries involved in such accidents are often quite severe or catastrophic. Common injuries include amputations, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries.
