If you are talking about shelf stable canned crab meat, the date on the can is likely the 'best by' date and not an expiration. If the can is unopened, has been stored properly and is not swollen or damaged, it is likely safe to eat, but the palatability of the crab meat will deteriorate over time. The processor will not guarantee the product beyond the recommended 'use by' date.

Canned juice is safe until it is expired or opened and left out for a long time. The canned juice may also have an expiration date. The description will help determine if to throw it out or not.

That depends how long after the expiration, how it has been stored and the condition of the can. Usually, canned food has a "best by", not an "expiration". If the "expiration" is recent and the can has been stored properly and is in good condition, the contents could be safe. Whether or not to use it would be your decision.
