Crane Operator Injured In Tip-Over, Translated To Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical Center
The incident occurred around 3PM on Tuesday, October 1st on a construction site near the Hollywood Casino Toledo. The victim, a subcontractor of Kokosing Construction Company, was operating a crane when it tipped over, leaving the man with non-life threatening injuries.
Following the accident, the victim was transporter by emergency responders to nearby Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical center for treatment.
The contractor is tasked with rebuilding a segment of I-75 ranging from South Ave. to Glenwood Rd. A replacement of the DiSalle Bridge is also part of the project, which explains why the crane was present nearby to the Miami interchange.
Fortunately, the crane’s collapse did not leave debris on the road, and traffic was mostly unaffected.

Laurence Banville, an experienced construction injury attorney at BanvilleLaw.com, offered some valuable insight regarding the options available to victims after they suffer any kind of injury on a construction site:
“The term heavy machinery is one that is constantly used to refer to the massive and massively powerful vehicles used on most construction projects. This can include forklifts, excavators, pavers, compactors, dump trucks, cranes, and more.
This category of specialized machinery are often the reason for which many construction projects are completed on time, as they can make easy work of intensive tasks. Nevertheless, the use of these large and capable tools also brings with it significant risk.
For this reason, the federal agency OSHA has established some very strict standards of safety to avoid injuries and deaths. Unfortunately, these continue taking place year after year.
Victims of heavy machinery injuries on construction sites have some legal options available to them to aid in achieving a compensation. This compensation can cover medical expenses resulting from the construction injury, as well as other types of trauma. A construction accident lawsuit may also be an option to pursue in the search for financial compensation after a workplace accident.
Both options should be discussed with an experienced construction accident attorney as the process can be complex and confusing to navigate.”
