Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Chicago, IL Construction Job Injury Lawyer

Construction Worker’s Compensation in Illinois

The Illinois workers’ compensation attorneys of Malman Law, PC, have represented injured construction workers since it opened its doors in 1994.

Construction work can be some of the most physically demanding and risky work out there. According to government surveys, approximately a thousand workers are killed at construction sites across the U.S every year and thousands more are injured. Here in the city of Chicago alone, dozens if not hundreds of workers suffer injuries from falls, crane accidents, projectile impacts, failed safety equipment, and so on.

What are some typical construction injuries?

  • Back injuries – Even workers who are well trained and well equipped can endure significant stresses, strains, and torsion forces on their backs, which can result in everything from cervical myelopathy to damage to the L5 and L4 vertebrae to sciatic nerve damage.
  • Repetitive stress injuries – Workers who perform the same or similar tasks day-in, day-out for months or years can do serious damage to soft tissues. The trigger point nodules that result can refer pain throughout the body. If fact, this “referred pain” often leads victims of repetitive stress injuries to get misdiagnosed. (For instance, the pain you feel in the tips of your fingers may have little to do with an injury specific to your hands and may have more to do with macroscopic damage to tissues in your upper back, shoulders, and chest.)
  • Falling injuries – In addition to the obvious acute injuries that result from falling — such as broken bones, contusions, bleeding, brain injuries, spinal cord damage, and so forth — victims of falls can often suffer long term damage, such as tendon damage and asymmetrical gait, which can in turn cause other secondary and tertiary medical conditions.
  • Burns, chemical injuries, and exposure to radioactivity – Toxic substances are tightly controlled at most construction sites. But things can get out of control — even at the most meticulously maintained sites. Often, exposure to contaminants, such as asbestos, dust, or debris, can result in acute problems, such as respiratory distress, as well as long term illnesses, such as asthma and lung cancer.
