Settlement reached in crane crash wrongful death suit

A settlement has been reached between the family of a 30-year old Burlington Co., New Jersey man killed in a crane incident and the construction company that owned the crane for $1 million. The man was killed in an April 2012 accident at a Manhattan construction site when the 170-foot tall crane collapsed. The wrongful death suit alleged that the company did not properly inspect the crane and make sure that it was safe for use. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) backed up the lawsuit's allegations when it inspected the company's crane, and determined that it had not done the required inspections on it and issued the company 10 violations and $68,000 in fines. The company disputed OSHA's findings. The man's family was upset that the company did not admit wrongdoing.
