Chicago Construction Accident Attorney

According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), construction accidents are one of the most common types of workplace accidents; every year around 150,000 people will be injured on a construction site.  Additionally, 20% of all workplace fatalities occur as a result of a construction accident. The injuries sustained on a construction site can be very severe and can seriously limit the individuals ability to live a normal life.  The extensive rehabilitation process involved with any construction accident can create costly medical bills, placing undue stress on any family.

The most common types of construction accidents include:

•  Crane accidents

•  Cutting accidents

•  Electrical Injuries

•  Elevator accidents

•  Exploding compressed gas

•  Falling objects

•  Fires

•  Forklift accident

•  Lifting injuries

•  General motor vehicle injuries

•  Roof collapses

•  Scaffolding accidents

•  Slips and falls

•  Unsafe equipment accidents

•  Welding accidents

Although an injured worker may be receiving workers compensation benefits as a result of their construction accident; an experienced Chicago construction accident attorney will help you receive additional compensation for your medical expenses and pain and suffering.  Your employer may not be the only responsible party for your construction accident; additional responsible parties can include insurance companies, subcontractors, architects, or anyone else who has a responsibility to insure a safe working environment.
