Philadelphia, PA Crane Accident Attorney

Heavy Equipment Accidents at Construction Sites

From towering cranes to bobcat loaders, construction vehicles add another element of danger at busy construction sites. There is little room for error with these powerful machines, yet many times the operators lack proper training or common sense.

Luber Law represents victims of heavy equipment accidents, including injuries or deaths involving heavy equipment. While you cannot sue your employer, you may be able to seek personal injury damages from a site owner, general contractor or subcontractor.

We represent victims of heavy equipment accidents in the Philadelphia area and southeast Pennsylvania. Contact us today for a free consultation with our experienced attorney.

Philadelphia Heavy Equipment Injury Lawyer

There are OSHA standards for the operation of construction vehicles and heavy equipment. Adherence to these rules is especially critical at job sites where multiple crews are working. Trial lawyer Michael Luber is knowledgeable about OSHA regulations, industry protocols and the rights of injured workers. He has the resources to pursue compensation beyond workers’ compensation for construction site accidents involving:

  • Cranes and hoists
  • Lifts and bucket trucks
  • Backhoes and trenchers
  • Forklifts and skid loaders
  • Dump trucks and flatbeds
  • Cement mixers
  • Other construction vehicles and implements


 

 

We work hard to identify the negligence at the root of heavy equipment accidents: inadequate training or licensure, disabled backup warning systems, insufficient spotters on the ground, failure to shut off power, or digging too close to underground pipes or cables. In many cases, simple communication or safety barriers could have prevented these tragedies.

 

 

Michael Luber understands that severe injuries from heavy equipment accidents may prevent that person from returning to construction work. He assembles a case for full compensation for future medical care, lost earning capacity, permanent disability, and the pain and suffering. He handles both the personal injury claim and the workers’ compensation claim.
