According to surveys conducted by politically neutral institutions, like the Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) and the Department of Labor (DOL), construction sites are some of the most dangerous places in Illinois to work. Employees, sub-contractors and inspectors labor under conditions that are constantly changing. Thousands of steps must go right for a construction project to turn out well. Only misstep needs to happen for tragedy to ensue.

Our Chicago construction accident lawyers can investigate your claim and draw up a systematic approach to get you the compensation you deserve. More than one party may be responsible, since a variety of factors often play into these types of accidents.
Parties who may be legally liable for your injuries (and the resulting medical bills and other costs) can include but are not limited to:
- Manufacturers of equipment that you or your co-workers used
- Construction companies
- Other workers or supervisors
- Insurance companies
- Anyone else who has a legal obligation to ensure a safe work environment
Given the number of potentially liable parties and the complexity of these accidents, it behooves you to contact us immediately. Gathering information about what happened during the construction accident is critical. The longer you wait to get in touch with an Illinois construction accident attorney, the more difficult it can be to determine what exactly took place and figure out whose negligence caused or contributed to the accident.
Injured workers during a construction accident may be tempted to give statements to insurance companies or other investigators. Resist that temptation. You may accidentally compromise your case and imperil your ability to collect for missed wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
