Common Construction Accident Injuries

Working at a construction site or even passing near one can be dangerous; all sorts of mishaps can cause serious injuries or death.

Common types of accidents include but are not limited to:

  • Falls: Whether from scaffolding, ladders, or rooftops, falls are a common cause of construction site injuries.
  • Struck by Objects: Heavy machinery, falling debris, or tools can cause severe injuries when they strike workers.
  • Equipment Malfunctions: Defective machinery, electrical equipment failures, or faulty safety devices can lead to dangerous mishaps.
  • Trench Collapses: Workers involved in excavation or trenching are at risk of being trapped or crushed by collapsing trenches.
  • Electrocutions: Construction sites often have exposed wiring or unfinished electrical systems that can electrocute workers and others.  

Liability in Construction Accident Cases

Determining liability in construction accident cases can be complicated. Multiple parties could be responsible for the actions or conditions that caused a fall, mechanical issue, or another dangerous incident. Construction companies, contractors, subcontractors, property owners, equipment manufacturers, and architects could all shoulder the blame for an accident. 

After years of practicing law, our Chicago construction site accident lawyers know how to approach these cases and determine liability by carefully analyzing facts and evidence. Not only that, but they are experienced negotiators and can skillfully represent clients in settlement meetings with construction company lawyers and insurance representatives.
