A crane accident can leave people with serious injuries. Those injuries may require hospitalization and surgery. Workers may not be able to return to work for a significant amount of time. Sadly, injuries sustained in a crane accident may even prove to be fatal.
Construction workers in New York City who suffer injuries on the job may be able to obtain workers’ compensation benefits. However, if injuries were caused by a third party, victims may obtain compensation through a lawsuit.
Duane Morgan, Glenn Dolan and Jared Levine of Morgan Levine Dolan are currently fighting for the rights of construction workers in New York City on more than 250 cases. Many of these cases involve union construction workers injured from objects falling from scaffolds, ladders and cranes. Many of these injured union members are unaable to return to work due to their injuries. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients.
