Who can be held liable for an electric shock accident involving a crane?


[suffusion-widgets id=’3′]

Crane accidents involving electrocution or shock accidents often result in lawsuits against multiple parties. In a given construction site accident case, there may be multiple contractors who bear liability for the accident, including the general or prime contractor. In addition, various other parties may be held liable in a crane electrocution accident case:

  • crane operating company,
  • crane manufacturer,
  • crane part manufacturer,
  • crane maintenance company, and
  • utility company.

When an electric shock occurs during use of heavy equipment, it is highly likely that OSHA regulations were violated, either negligently or intentionally. Crane accident cases involving electric shock accidents must be evaluated by someone with a thorough understanding of various OSHA regulations and how they apply to a given situation.
