Chicago Construction Accident Lawyer
Many construction companies go to great lengths on an ongoing basis to protect their employees from suffering an Illinois work injury. This may include requiring them to wear protective equipment like hard hats, attending safety programs, and/or following safety rules and procedures. But it is often not enough and every year tens of thousands of Illinoisans suffer work injuries and are forced to file a lawsuit with a Chicago construction lawyer to recover for their damages or to file for Illinois workers’ comp.
According to the The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s most recent study statistics of workplace accidents, in 2007 5,488 workers died from on the job injuries. Another 49,000 deaths were attributed to work related diseases. Another four million workers in the private sector suffered work related injuries approximately one half of which took time away from work.
The types of injuries vary greatly but may include:
- Scaffolding fall
- Falls on the site
- Falling objects
- Construction equipment accidents involving bulldozers, backhoes, and/or cranes
