Crane accidents frequently occur in the construction industry, killing approximately 80 people every year in the U.S. When they are not deadly, crane accidents frequently cause serious injuries.
The choice to work in the construction industry, and to work with cranes, is not a negligent choice. The stark reality is that crane accidents and other construction accidents are often the results of mistakes that should never happen â the product of someone else’s serious, and sometimes fatal, negligence.
Whether you have lost a loved one or suffered a traumatic injury from a crane accident, you owe it to yourself to seek the help of an experienced attorney. For more than 70 years, the law firm of Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo has been devoted to helping individuals in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania find answers and fair compensation after serious accidents such as crane accidents.

While the above list includes common crane accidents, there are many other ways to be injured while working on or around a crane.

Three Generations Devoted To Helping Injured Workers
Our law firm was founded in 1936 by the Honorable Isadore Krasno, a former workers’ compensation referee, and judge. His goal was to use his knowledge to protect the rights of injured workers, the knowledge that he passed down to his son and grandson. Today, Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo has more than a dozen lawyers who are focused on the same goal.
Part of that dedication is ensuring that clients can afford our representation by handling all cases on a contingency basis. We will only get paid if we succeed in your case.
