Texas Outrigger Lawyer
Cranes are a common sight in Southeast Texas and along the Gulf Coast, where they are used every working day in the oil fields, in refinery applications, on construction sites and elsewhere. Instrumental for lifting heavy objects and loads, cranes pose significant dangers to those who work on or near them. When accidents occur, injuries are often catastrophic and fatalities a very real possibility.
If you or a loved one was injured in a crane accident, you may be coping with overwhelming medical costs, long-term loss of income, or emotional recovery from a tragic death. Getting a personal injury lawyer and firm with substantial experience in workplace accident cases involved is essential – and the sooner the better.
