Construction Accident Attorneys in Chicago
Our construction site attorneys in Chicago are very adept at establishing the cause of your injury and then determining who’s liable.
A construction site can be a very dangerous place to work. In addition to potential worker’s compensation that you might be entitled, you may also have a claim against a third party corporation or entity that is responsible for deviating from normal workplace safety procedures. While Worker’s Compensation provides for no fault compensation from your employer, its recovery potential is limited.
By identifying third party causes of construction site injuries we’re able to help our clients achieve a more satisfying and complete level of compensation.
Chicago Construction Site Accidents – Common Causes
Hidden Dangers: Construction accidents are often the result of a variety of causes. Hidden Dangers such as unsafe ladders, scaffolding, and rigging often cause serious and sometimes fatal injuries.
Falling Objects: Workers struck by falling or flying objects are at an elevated risk of head injuries. Head injuries can be life changing and even fatal. Avoiding these accidents through proper safety practices, such as wearing the proper safety gear and the employer maintaining a safe wcan help minimize your risk.
Failure to Warn: Before construction workers begin working on a project, it is important that they are advised of all of the risks associated with the project.
Legal issues arise when a supervisor fails to adequately inform workers about the risks associated with a project. An employer may be liable for an injury caused by their failure to warn.
