What is Crane Injury Workers Compensation in St. Louis?

If you or a loved one is injured or killed doing work-related activities (whether or not the act was negligent), you may be able to claim workers compensation. Typically, workers comp is a policy companies use to avoid being sued. In return, injured workers or families of workers can file claims to be compensated for lost wages during recovery and medical bills. In the case of crane injuries, attorneys like those at Dixon Injury Firm work with victims and families to make sure the proper amount of compensation is received. As in many of these cases, there are a lot of moving parts and pitfalls our workers compensation lawyers can help you navigate.

What are Common Causes of Crane Injuries?

Like when dealing with other heavy equipment on construction sites, cranes can be dangerous. In fact there have been few OSHA safety changes in the past two decades to reduce the chances of an accident or fatality. The magnitude of risk (as in the number of deaths and accidents compared to the amount of crane operators and associated workers) is extremely high across the board. This is why it’s so important to have a reliable workers compensation lawyer with crane injury experience to help you or a loved one reclaim financial losses from these accidents. Below are a few ways these cases come about:

  • Personal falls
  • Falling equipment
  • Transportation incidents
  • Faulty equipment
  • Contact with dangerous components
  • Electrocution
  • Inclement weather
  • Other debris

Crane Injury Legal Advice

Remember that crane injury attorneys at Dixon have a solid understanding of workers injury compensation law and are ready to help you or a coworker’s next case. When it comes to crane accidents in Missouri, there are lots of factors to consider. Here are a handful of general workers compensation legalities to keep in mind:

Insurance depends on the severity of the injury. A fatality or life-debilitating injury (resulting in the inability to being unable to continue working again versus a few months off are different. Are the resulting injuries partial or total?

Like other cases, crane injury lawyers stress proactiveness. Claims have different statutes of limitations. It’s important to move quickly as soon as you or a loved one can to maximize compensation and benefits to help with medical bills, lost time, and other finances.

Workers compensation evolved in place of workplace lawsuits. If you agree to workers comp, you typically forego the right to sue companies for negligence. In exchange, you receive compensation for lost time, medical expenses, and other costs. Workers who have been harmed by crane injuries are able to make claims for workplace-related injuries to optimize compensation claims.
