Construction Site Accidents

Construction site accidents are an unfortunately common part of the job. It is estimated that one of ten construction workers is injured every year. Construction sites are so dangerous that many people who are not even working in the industry are still injured every year. If you have fallen victim to a construction site accident, please contact a skilled Chicago construction site accident attorney today.

Most people who are injured on construction sites are workers who are eligible for worker’s comp and therefore, cannot take action against their employer. If the injury was caused by a third party’s negligence or recklessness though, the worker may bring a suit against the company or person who caused the injuries. A common example is when a trench shoring company fails to properly secure a trench and workers are injured when it collapses. If you have experienced an injury that was not your fault or that of your employer, please call The Law Offices of Your Chicago Accident Attorney and speak with a knowledgeable Chicago accident lawyer.

If you do not work for a construction company, but were still injured on or near a construction site, you have the right to file and accident lawsuit against the company that injured you. Common dangers to non-employees include falling hazards, open manholes, dangerous construction truck drivers and more. Even if you are unsure who is specifically responsible for your injuries, a Chicago accident attorney can help you uncover evidence to help you identify the liable party.
