Toronto Crane Collapse Lawyers
During construction projects, site routinely use large cranes to haul equipment, lift heavy cargo, and transfer debris. While vital to the construction industry, this machinery can be very dangerous if it is not properly operated and maintained. One small error can cause a crane to unexpectedly drop cargo, plunge into solid structures, or lose control. Workers must take the utmost precaution and safety measures with regard to operating, maintaining, and repairing a crane, as well as ensure it passes inspection. However, it is common for this responsibility to fall to neglect, and the results are generally disastrous.
