Injured in a Crane Accident? You Need an NYC Crane Accident Lawyer to Obtain Just Compensation
Crane accidents are a common accident on construction sites. Crane operators are required to have extensive training to ensure proper operation and that the employer is charged with ensuring that a qualified, competent employee is handling the equipment as safely as possible at all times. Nevertheless, we still see a large number of injuries and even deaths from these accidents each year.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a crane accident at a construction site, the NYC crane accident lawyers at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. have the experience, knowledge and resources to help you obtain the full compensation that you are entitled to. We are aggressive, yet compassionate, in fighting for the rights of our clients who are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of other parties.
Crane accidents are a major cause of death and injury in all large cities, especially in New York where construction has boomed again. According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), more than 250,000 crane operators and an even larger number of other workers and the general public are at a serious risk for injuries and even death resulting from crane accidents. With approximately 125,000 cranes in operation today in the construction industry, it is no wonder that so many people are at a danger of getting seriously injured at construction sites.
The crane industry is required to comply with certain rules and standards set by OSHA and ANSI in an attempt to reduce the number of accidents. However, despite the urgency and necessity of complying with such rules, the crane industry often takes dangerous short cuts in an effort to save money. The construction industry is an inherently dangerous field to work in, making it even more important not to cut back on crane safety operation and training.
Depending on the specific facts of how an accident occurred, a crane accident victim can suffer serious injuries that generally require extensive and expensive medical care. Below are some injuries that are common to most crane accidents:

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
So many times I wanted to quick and Jeff guided me on the right path. Answered all my questions, always there when I had a concerned regarding the case. Very smart and knowledgeable. I would recommend his services. I appreciate all your help. My financial future is secure for my family and I thanks to you guys.
Words alone cannot express our utmost gratitude at the comprehensive handling of my family’s case. This was a long, drawn out case that took quite some time to come to judgment. Jeff and his team were very thorough and relentless in their pursuit of justice for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.

For a personal injury lawyer I would recommend Jeff Korek without any doubt's
