Trucks with aerial lift buckets are indispensable to many industries, including the construction, telephone, and electrical industries. However, they are also dangerous pieces of equipment that can cause serious injury such as damage to the spinal cord. These effects can result in wrongful death or paralysis.

A Faulty Bucket Truck Can Cause Serious Injuries, Including Spine Injuries and Death
Many lift bucket accidents, including those in Indianapolis, are caused by unsafe equipment. Rental companies will circulate bucket trucks that are not properly inspected or weren't working in the first place. When these bucket trucks cause injuries, injured workers may be able to hold the rental companies responsible.
Similarly, if a manufacturer put a faulty cherry picker on the market, it can and should be held accountable for any injuries the product defects caused. Let us determine the party liable for your accident or the death of your loved one.
Handling All Four Corners of a Construction Accident Case
There are potentially four different legal proceedings involved in a bucket truck accident case, including:
- The workers' compensation case if the accident happened on-the-job
- A third party liability case against a rental company, general contractor or other negligent party
- A defective product case against the company that designed or manufactured the bucket truck
- A Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) case if your injuries are likely to last 12 months or longer
We have a wide range of resources available to you. We have a focused Indiana workers’ compensation lawyer, engineer attorney, nurse attorney, and last but not least, an OSHA certified Indiana construction accident attorney.
