Crane Incident Investigations

Crane accidents at ports and on vessels and offshore structures are a potential cause of serious personal injury, downtime and subsequent legal action.

Should you find your organisation involved in a crane accident, then Brookes Bell can help you.

But, is it really necessary to seek expert advice in the event of a crane failure?
