PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT VICTIMS

There are so many different hazards and potential dangers on a construction site, and virtually anything can cause a worker to suffer bodily injury. Some of the most common types of injuries associated with construction accidents in Chicago include:

  • Fall-related injuries
  • Electrocution injuries
  • Injuries from being struck by an object
  • Bodily injury related to the handling of dangerous machinery and equipment, i.e., crush or caught in/between injuries
  • Vision impairment due to an eye injury
  • Hearing impairment due to blast pressure or prolonged exposure to high decibel noise
  • Burn injuries
  • Injuries sustained from dealing with hazardous materials
  • Injuries related to heat exhaustion and prolonged sun exposure

Why these injuries happen in the first place is something that dedicated personal injury lawyers examine at length. There are certain safety standards that are required to be in place at construction sites, and a deviation from those safety standards can amount to liability for your injuries. For instance, if your employer failed to provide you with the appropriate safety equipment for the job you were assigned to do and you were hurt as a result, your employer could be held liable for your construction accident injuries.

It is important to establish liability in construction accident cases and figure out why the accident happened, who was at fault, and whether it was preventable in the first place. These are all key issues that need to be explored in a personal injury case. Additionally, the breadth and scope of your injuries needs to be well documented. A skilled lawyer can help you understand your legal options regarding your construction site accident and can advise you on what you need to do to prepare your strongest personal injury claim possible.
