A Crane Collapse Injures One And Damages Homes

free_consultation

When it comes to the types of injuries a person can sustain due to the careless or negligent actions of someone else, a crane collapse is not on top of everyone’s mind. However, a recent incident in a Long Beach neighborhood damaged several homes and harmed one person. At JML Law, we are here when you need a personal injury attorney. Our knowledgeable and experienced team will work to secure the compensation you need. Today, we want to look at this incident and discuss your options in a personal injury case.

What happened in this incident?

You may have seen all of the news about “porch bandits” and would-be burglars being captured on doorbell camera footage. These cameras, though, sometimes capture more bizarre footage. On Monday, Oct. 7, a doorbell camera in a Long Beach neighborhood captured a crane toppling over.

When the crane fell, it struck multiple homes and left a homeowner injured due to falling debris. The power company for the area, Southern California Edison, says that a contractor was replacing overhead lines when the crane toppled over.

Pastor Carl Kromminga was on the patio of his home when the incident occurred. “We were refilling some generators and just heard this long bang, and it was almost like someone hit me in the back of the head with a baseball bat,” he said. He said he had no idea what hit him, but that he quickly realized he was bleeding.

An investigation is currently underway to determine what caused the crane to tip over. Power was quickly restored to about 6,700 customers.

Personal injuries happen in various ways

This may have been a “freak accident,” but these incidents are rarely “accidents.” There is a good chance that an investigation will uncover carelessness or negligence on the part of someone working that day.

Personal injuries due to other people’s negligence happen all the time. Some of the most common reasons people need Long Beach personal injury lawyers include:

In many cases, the at-fault party is not easily identifiable. It can be an individual, a company, or even a government entity.
