Damage to a tractor crane jib


A tractor crane with a capacity of 80 metric tons was being used on a worksite for an extension to a clinic.

The end of the telescopic jib was hit by the jib of a tower crane on an adjacent worksite.


The GM Consultant loss adjuster set up the comparative appraisal process and obtained the technical and administrative worksite documents. This showed that the tower crane operator was liable for the incident.

The appraisal investigation continued until a signed report verifying direct damage as well as subsequent operational losses was received. This allowed the company to continue and finalise the appeal procedure.
