Crane Accidents

Miami Crane Accident LawyerCrane Accidents

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, 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, 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. And if you cannot get to our office, we will come to you. We routinely make home and hospital visits to help make things easier for personal injury victims and their families.

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
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
