Chicago Construction Accident & Injury Lawyers

Chicago Construction Accident AttorneysThe U.S. construction industry is ranked fourth in work-related injuries, following the general labor, trucking, and nursing industries. With workers and heavy machinery moving about, many at different heights, and all focused on different tasks, it isn't surprising that construction sites are the source of so many accidents and injuries.

Some of the most common types of construction accidents include:

  • Falls, including roofing, elevator shafts, scaffolding, holes and heavy falling objects
  • Slips & Trips
  • Crane accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Workers being trapped or run over by moving equipment, such as forklifts and bulldozers
  • Electricutions
  • Trench and ditch collapses
  • Welding accidents

Each of these accidents can result in traumatic injuries or even be fatal.
