Construction Accident Cases In Illinois
There are numerous potential hazards at a typical construction site. Some of the most common types of construction accidents include:
- Slip and Fall Accidents: Hazardous surfaces are a big problem at construction sites. When a surface is wet, oily, slippery, or uneven, there is a major risk of workers slipping, tripping, or falling.
- Being Struck by Falling Objects: Falling construction debris, such as nails, shingles, and plywood, sometimes strikes workers and causes injuries.
- Machinery Accidents: Some accidents occur because of negligent operation of cranes, hoists, and other types of machinery. In other cases, injuries may be caused by a design or manufacturing defect, making it a product liability case.
- Ladder/Scaffolding Accidents: Falling off a ladder or scaffold from any significant height can cause serious injuries. This could also be the result of poor placement, faulty design, or faulty manufacturing.
- Toxic Torts: Many construction workers are exposed to toxic chemicals on the job site, which can lead to serious illnesses. Toxic substances can also result in explosions.
Construction accident cases may be affected by workers’ compensation laws if your employer is the responsible party. If a party other than your employer (such as a third-party contractor, supplier, manufacturer, or property owner) is responsible for the accident, you may pursue a personal injury claim to recover appropriate damages.
