Crane Accident Attorney in Phoenix, AZ
Experienced Counsel for Construction Accident Victims & Their Families
Crane accidents are responsible for serious injuries and fatalities on Arizona construction sites. The Arizona Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is the agency responsible for imposing standards that help prevent these accidents. To accomplish this goal, the agency sets certain safety laws for the operation and maintenance of cranes in Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale, and throughout Arizona.
This includes such crane operation regulations as:
- Age limits for crane operation
- Employee training and certification
- Speed and weight control
- Lighting and clearance
- Routine testing and inspections
General contractors and subcontractors who are responsible for crane accidents held liable, or legally responsible, for a worker’s injuries. At Alex & Associates, we can offer experienced guidance after such an accident to determine liability and all possible sources of financial compensation.

Types of Crane Accidents
The leading causes of construction worker fatalities from cranes involve the machinery falling, collapsing, and tipping over. An accident may also result in an electrocution. Since crane booms have an extended reach with a wide swing radius, they present a hazard of coming into contact with power lines. Electrocution victims require specialized medical services and often suffer permanent injuries, disfigurement, and disabilities.
Another hazard of working in the area of a crane is the risk of being struck by falling material. In such instances, not only is the crane operator/subcontractor likely to be liable, but the general contractor may also be responsible. Only an experienced construction accident lawyer can identify the responsible parties.
Injuries Sustained in Crane Accidents
Both workers and passersby can suffer serious injuries from cranes, such as:
- Broken bones
- Severe disfigurement
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Chemical and electrical burns
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Any delay in retaining an experienced attorney may present a serious risk of the loss of critical evidence. An accident scene must be investigated, the crane and boom inspected, and witnesses interviewed as soon as possible. Thereafter, it is important that your law firm retain construction and equipment experts as well as medical experts, life care planners, and economists, depending on the nature and extent of injuries.
