Crane Collapses On To Several Homes

Help From a North Lauderdale Workers’ Compensation Attorney

At least two construction workers were severely injured when a crane collapsed in a North Lauderdale neighborhood. One was the crane operator who worked for Florida Power & Light while the other worked as an engineer for Maval Electrical and Mechanical Engineering LLC. Aerial footage of the incident shows the boom crane laying atop one heavily damaged home owner’s roof. The Assistant Chief from the City of North Lauderdale Fire Rescue stated that the injured employees were rushed to the hospital with critical, but non-life threating injuries.

FP&L was installing a new utility electricity pole when the accident occurred. While it’s not clear as to the permanency of the two employees injuries as of yet, undoubtedly they’ll miss an extensive amount of time from work and require extensive on-going medical care, rehabilitation  and or vocational services if they cannot return to their occupation as a result of this Florida Workers’ Compensation accident. Moreover, the engineer may also have a valid personal injury claim versus FP&L based on their negligence. That means he could have two sources of recovery. Fortunately, The Law Offices of Evan M. Ostfeld, P.A. can handle both matters.
