Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed After Fatal Crane Collapse
Thursday, August 14th, 2008

Another unfortunate crane accident. The family of an Illinois man killed in a crane accident has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the contractors responsible for coordinating and inspecting work at the construction site where the accident occurred. The man was in the basket of an aerial lift when the crane’s boom collapsed onto the basket.

The judge hearing the case issued orders providing the family’s counsel access to the work area and equipment involved in the accident, and prohibiting removal of the crane from the site and barring OSHA from altering, repairing or performing destructive testing of the crane and a 4-foot boom cable.

  1. It is wise that they keep OSHA out of the accident site. It’s only fair.
