Chicago Construction Accidents
There are safety measures that must be in place in order to decrease the risk of injury or death from a construction accident. Construction work can be dangerous work to begin with, which is why carelessness is not an option when it comes to keeping workers safe.

That said, regardless of whether anyone was at fault in causing a construction accident, most workers are entitled to Chicago workers’ compensation for their work injuries, illness, or the death of a loved one on the job. Injury victims and their families may also be entitled to damages from liable third parties, which is an issue that an experienced Chicago construction accident law firm can help you determine and pursue.

Cook County construction accident lawsuits have been successfully won against construction companies, sub-contractors, engineers, architects, building designers, equipment manufacturers, insurer companies, and others. With so many parties potentially involved, determining who is liable can be a complex process. The sooner you retain the services of a good Chicago construction accident law firm, the easier it will be to figure out what happened and who caused it.
