What Our Clients Say
How JMW Can Help You Claim
We have years of experience in helping individuals who have been involved in crane accidents obtain compensation, which means we are well placed to assist you at this time. Our solicitors put client care and a high quality of service at the heart of all our work.

Although the use of cranes is regulated, and the individuals operating them are subject to specialist training before being allowed to operate them, accidents can still happen.
Our specialist solicitors have handled crane accident cases involving:
- Mechanical faults on the crane
- Taking a load too heavy for the crane to lift
- Miscommunication leading to a collision
- Crane and loads destabilising after contact with other surfaces
- Objects falling from the crane
- Adverse weather destabilising the crane
- Human error
No matter how your injury was sustained, if your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Compensation sustained for your injuries can cover any loss of earnings you have endured, as well as unexpected medical costs and other expenses incurred as a result of your injuries. This can provide a vital lifeline for individuals who are able to receive the support they may not otherwise have been able to access.
Your Employer’s Responsibility Explained
Your employer is legally required to follow strict guidelines set by the Health & Safety Executive when it comes to the use of cranes. Risk assessments must be carried out to ensure that a crane is safe to use, slings must be checked and regular maintenance checks should be conducted.
It is also an employer’s responsibility to ensure that all operating staff are trained and competent when it comes to handling a crane, while all those working in the vicinity are told of the dangers of cranes.
If HSE procedures have not been followed and an accident occurs, you will be able to make a compensation claim.
