Best Chicago Construction Accident Lawyers

Construction is a necessary industry but a dangerous occupation. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that in 2018, there were 184 deaths caused by work injuries. Out of those, at least 25 were work injuries sustained at construction jobs. Those who work on construction sites face many different types of injuries every day, from falls to burns. Some of these are caused by the negligence of other parties, and some of them simply “happen.”. The best Chicago construction accident lawyers are here to help you if you have been injured in a construction accident. 

If you become injured in a construction accident, we will immediately pursue workers’ compensation benefits so that you can get medical benefits and wage replacement, aggressively investigate to determine whether any third parties can be held liable, and then pursue those claims against those third parties if they exist.  We have helped members of many trades, including Union Carpenters, Laborers, Operating Engineers, Tilesetters, Pipefitters, Painters, and many more.

Types of Construction Accidents

Construction accidents can occur for many different reasons, such as lack of training, operator errors, equipment malfunctions, and lack of protective equipment. Sometimes these injuries happen because someone failed to do something they should have done. Some of the most common accidents on construction sites are:

  • Crane or hoist accidents
  • Falls from heights such as scaffolding, ladders, and roofs
  • Slip and falls, even from the ground, can cause serious injuries
  • Gas leaks, fires, and explosions
  • Forklift accidents
  • Trench accidents or collapses
  • Elevator shaft accidents
  • Electrocutions
  • Machinery accidents due to malfunction or negligence
  • Struck-by accidents when a worker is hit by a motor vehicle or piece of machinery while working on a construction site
  • Caught-between accidents happen when a limb or an individual’s entire body may get caught by a piece of equipment or crushed by the debris of a construction accident
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals or toxins causing severe respiratory illnesses

You should always consult with the best Chicago construction accident attorneys after any of these types of injury events occur. An attorney can help you determine if you have a legal claim, and another party should be held liable for your damages.
