Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 22, 2008
Houston-based lawyer Terry Bryant will be representing several workers affected by the recent crane collapse that took the lives of four people and injured seven others.
The crane collapse took place on July 18, 2008, and is now the subject of a federal investigation. The crane--standing 30 stories tall and capable of lifting 1 million pounds--came crashing to the ground at a LyondellBasell refinery, one of the largest polymer and petrochemical companies in the world. Owned by Louisiana-based Deep South Crane & Rigging, the crane collapsed during maintenance after being assembled onsite the previous month. Four injured workers were taken to area hospitals, and an additional three employees were treated at the scene of the accident.
"As the crane collapsed so did the dreams, hopes and security of the families affected by this tragedy," said attorney Terry Bryant. "My goal is to help find the cause behind this tragic accident and provide justice for my clients and their families. I want to help ensure that accidents like these don't happen again and to hold those who are responsible accountable for their actions."
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is officially investigating the incident, which is the latest in a string of fatal crane-related accidents across the country. According to CNN, cities including Miami, Las Vegas, and New York have all had fatal crane accidents in the past several months. Additionally, a separate Houston crane collapse occurred yesterday near Highway 5 and Kingwood Drive when a crane toppled over and landed on the back of a flatbed truck. No one was injured.
