WHen Cranes Collapse, Our Firm Steps Up to Fight for Workers' lives

Louisiana Crane Accident Lawyers

Representing Workers Hurt in Crane Accidents in Louisiana & Beyond

In the manufacturing and construction industries, few pieces of equipment have caused tragic accidents like a crane. About 2 in 3 crane accident fatalities took place in construction or manufacturing, and 3 in 5 fatalities occurred as a result of being struck by an object or equipment. Most of the objects that struck and killed workers fell on them from a height.

The common causes of crane accidents include:

  • Improper usage of the crane
  • Improper crane for the job
  • Poor weather
  • Improper set-up
  • Falling debris
  • Hazardous conditions surrounding the crane

The Louisiana crane accident attorneys at Arnold & Itkin have spent our careers fighting for workers injured by poor workplace safety. Either on offshore oil rigs or in construction sites, workers deserve job sites that are as safe as possible—not job sites run by people who disregard their safety for the sake of “productivity.” We’ve represented numerous crane accident victims. If you or a loved one was harmed by a crane accident caused by mismanagement, speak with our attorneys today. We want to help you get back on your feet in every way possible.

$44 Million Won for Crane Accident Victim

In one of our most notable cases, our crane accident lawyers won the single largest verdict ever won by an amputee victim nationwide. Our client was working as a superintendent on a construction site. Two companies (the crane owners and the crane operators) were hired to drill holes for pilings. The drill augur kept getting stuck, so the crane operator asked for them to stop operations to figure out the issue.

Common Injuries Suffered in Louisiana Crane Accidents

  • Bone fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Amputations
  • Electrocution

Instead, his supervisor ordered him to keep drilling, which eventually caused the crane to collapse. Despite standing 100 feet away behind a safety fence, our client was pinned by falling equipment. Even after another crane was brought in to pull the equipment off of him, his leg was too badly damaged to save. His doctors were forced to do an above-the-knee amputation. In a three-week trial, Arnold & Itkin argued that our client deserved the resources to get his life back---resources to cover his lost wages, his diminished earning capacity, his anguish and grief, and his medical care. The jury agreed and awarded our client $44 million dollars.

The study of traumatic amputation has led researchers to consider it one of the most damaging injuries a person can suffer.

Our Clients Have Won Billions

Arnold & Itkin has helped our clients secure billions of dollars in verdicts and settlements—more than $1 billion in the last year alone. Our crane accident attorneys pour vast resources into these cases because the stakes are so high. The victims of crane accidents often lose limbs, suffer serious psychological trauma, and lose the ability to make a living all in one incident. Without financial support, a single error from a crane operator can rob them and their family’s financial stability for the rest of their lives.

When we win cases, we make sure victims and their families get everything they need to start again. No worries about how to pay for groceries or cover the bills. No worries about getting the best medical care possible. Arnold & Itkin makes sure their claims cover all the bases because we’ve handled these cases before—we know what our clients need before they do.

Our clients pay nothing out of pocket and only pay us if they win their case. Call (888) 493-1629 or contact us online for a free consultation today.
