Nylon Web Slings
Schwaba Law Firm is investigating and filing claims related to unsafe and/or hazardous Nylon Web Slings and Synthetic Web Slings. Quite often, these slings are used to fasten and lift loads with cranes. However, faulty manufactured or incorrect instructions on how to use the nylon web slings, synthetic web slings can result in the slings failing and potentially hurting or killing the user.
Manufacturers of Nylon Web Slings and Synthetic Web Slings, also commonly called straps, ties, tie-downs, wire rope and bungee cords, include Lift-All, Lift-It, Mazzella, Stren-Flex, and Certex to name a few. The industries they specialize in include trucking, transport, mining, aerospace, and construction.
These ropes and slings can be made with many different materials aside from synthetic nylon, including wire mesh and wire. The main issue with these web crane slings is that there are very few specifics on how to use these slings or what situations they are applicable to. Companies use general literature when providing warnings for the slings in order to market them for different unspecified uses. Problems with the slings include defective manufacture, defective design, and defective warnings, causing the slings to tear, cut and fail.
There have been many cases of these web crane slings snapped due to faulty manufacturing. Even when using an abrasion pad or wear protector, the sling still could potentially fail. When the slings fail, cranes can drop loads that weigh thousands of pounds. These loads can cause catastrophic damage to anyone around the sight of the drop, in many instances killing them.
