Construction Accidents

Construction workers perform one of the most dangerous occupations in the country. There are extensive rules and laws that require safety precautions at construction sites, but workers are still at great risk. Hundreds of thousands of workers are injured in construction accidents every year.

There is always a lot of building construction in the Chicago area, and accidents are going to happen. Because of special workplace laws, most of the time injured workers can only file a workers' compensation claim. There are some exceptions, however, including when accidents involve defective products or negligence by people other than the worker's employers and co workers. When this happens, those third parties can be held responsible.

If your construction site injury was caused by a defective product, machine, or tool, you may have a product liability claim. Inadequate safety precautions, dangerous design, or architectural defects can provide another basis for liability. Also, construction equipment manufacturers may be responsible for site safety because they are required to design safe products.

Our construction accident lawyers have extensive knowledge of the issues facing workers injured at construction sites. We thoroughly analyze each accident to determine all potential sources of liability. We bring creativity as well as perseverance to construction accident cases, and do not hesitate to innovate if that's the way to get results.
