Crane Accidents

Miami Crane Accident Lawyer

Large cranes are critical to the construction industry. They are used on many different types of commercial and residential construction projects, especially in large cities like Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Naples/Fort Myers. But their widespread use does not make them safe. According to government statistics, cranes and related equipment account for 17% of fatal injuries in U.S. construction. However, the proportion of injuries actually involving construction vehicles and equipment is probably much greater.

At the South Florida law offices of Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, P.A., we represent workers and bystanders who have been injured in crane accidents. These cases involve injuries on construction sites, many of which were caused by crane defects or by the negligence of an operator.

There are many different ways that cranes can cause injury:

  • Overloading and improper loading
  • Exceeding hoist limitations
  • Failure to use safety equipment or flagmen
  • Improper training of crane operators
  • Boom buckling
  • Operating cranes on improper surfaces, leading to overturning
  • Oversteering/crabbing
  • Contact with power lines, leading to electrocution

When it comes to crane injury cases, we have an open door policy at Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, P.A. Truly, we are always there to serve you. Our personal injury attorneys will meet with you whenever it's convenient for you — whether that is an evening or a weekend or early in the morning.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!

I would like to thank the staff of Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, P.A. The staff is professional. My attorney, Ronald Rodman, was responsive towards my email and a great advocate on my behalf for my car accident. I highly recommend this office. I hope that I will not get in a car accident again, but if I do, I'm calling Mr. Rodman. Orlando R.
