Cranes are essential equipment on ports, offshore drilling rigs and vessels, barges and other vessels carrying all types of cargo. Unfortunately, they can also be extremely dangerous, and each year numerous maritime workers suffer serious injuries in crane accidents on the job. These injuries often have lasting consequences, leaving victims unable to work, enjoy life and provide for their families.

If you have been seriously injured in a maritime crane accident, you need to choose a law firm that can help you stand up for your legal rights. Shipping companies, oil companies, drilling contractors, platform owners, port authorities and the other major corporations that are responsible for crane accidents put their interests first, and you cannot expect them to voluntarily pay just compensation. You have a lot at stake – probably far more than you realize – and you cannot afford to settle for anything less than a team of experienced attorneys who will do what it takes to win the compensation you deserve.

An Experienced Houston Maritime Injury Attorney is Ready to Help

At Morrow & Sheppard LLP, we have extensive experience representing maritime workers who have suffered back injuries, head injuries, broken bones and other serious injuries on the job. Maritime injury cases can be extremely complex, and securing just compensation requires knowledge of the law, knowledge of the technical issues involved with heavy onshore and offshore machinery, and the ability to successfully take on the largest corporations and defense firms in the world. Our attorneys know what it takes to win, and we have a proven track record of getting results for our clients.

When it comes to maritime crane accidents, one of the first steps toward securing just compensation is to determine what went wrong. When you contact us about your case, we will conduct a thorough investigation to identify the cause of your injuries and the company (or companies) that are financially responsible. Evidence in crane accident cases can disappear quickly, especially offshore, so it is critical that you contact us as soon as possible.

Some of the most common causes of maritime crane accident injuries include:

  • Ballring, boom, cable, rigging hardware, and winch failures
  • Cargo loading and unloading miscues
  • Crane assembly or disassembly errors
  • Crane operating errors
  • Inadequate crane maintenance
  • Inadequate crew, training or supervision
  • Mechanical failures
  • Personnel basket or “Billy Pugh” crew transfers
  • Dropped object injuries

Regardless of what happened, you need to speak with an attorney about your rights. Maritime law is complicated, and you do not want to listen to your employer’s advice or make any other mistakes that could jeopardize your claim for financial compensation.
