Saltz Mongeluzzi Barrett & Bendesky's team of aerial lift accident attorneys has represented more victims of aerial lift accidents than any other law firm in the United States.

Aerial lifts - including boom lifts, scissor lifts, vertical mast lifts and boom lifts - are increasingly popular at construction sites and in other workplaces. Yet about 30 construction workers a year die from accidents involving aerial lifts, and an estimated 150 more are injured, often catastrophically.

SMBB aerial lift attorneys have successfully represented victims of all of the most common types of these accidents, including when:

  • A lift tips over or collapses
  • A lift contacts overhead power lines
  • An inadvertently activated lift crushes a worker
  • A worker falls from a lift after it is struck by other equipment

Aerial Lift and Scissor Lift Expertise

Headed by Robert J. Mongeluzzi and David Kwass, our team of aerial lift accident attorneys draws upon both their own construction site experience - Mr. Kwass is a certified lift operator - and the help of top experts in the fields of operator training and lift design to prove our clients' cases. For example, if a scissor lift tips over on a concrete slab, we want to know: Was the scissor lift equipped with a pothole protection device to prevent tip-overs caused by uneven surfaces?

Mr. Mongeluzzi also is a nationally known advocate for aerial lift safety. He writes about lift safety and both he and Mr. Kwass have lectured trade groups who operate these lifts on construction sites and elsewhere. Mr. Mongeluzzi also founded and, with Mr. Kwass, co-chairs the American Association for Justice's Crane and Aerial Lift Accident Group, which teaches other lawyers across the country how to represent the victims of these tragic accidents.
