The McAleer Law firm secures another win in the fight to help those who have been killed or injured and suffering life-altering injuries caused by someone else’s neglect or carelessness.
Thanks to the dedication of the McAleer Law firm, Florida Handling Systems has settled for $4 million with the family of a man who was crushed by a five-ton crane after it fell in the industrial accident. The crane had been deemed safe just a few short months before the incident by a designated company inspector. Charles McAleer is quoted as saying “Florida Handling’s a good company; they just made a mistake.”
The investigation revealed that Two State bought the crane, then hired Florida Handling to inspect and correct anything that was not up to regulatory standards. The inspector made five visits to the facility within a 24-hour period while inspecting the crane and replacing key elements. However, the inspector had missed a vital safety feature, the drop lugs. Drop lugs are designed to hold the crane on the beam, if it comes off its track.
