Long Island and New York Crane & Heavy Equipment Accidents

Crane Accidents | Heavy Equipment Breakdowns | Operator Error | Negligent Maintenance | Carelessness in Design or Manufacture

A crane is an essential tool on a high-rise construction project. Other large vehicles and pieces of heavy equipment, from earth movers to dump trucks, from graders to backhoes, help make modern skyscrapers possible. But cranes and other heavy equipment have the potential to cause serious injury or death when carelessly operated, or when poorly designed or built. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a crane or heavy equipment accident, we can help.
