Construction site accidents are not uncommon in Illinois

Construction sites hold a great potential for damage. Every year, many people are injured or killed as a result of accidents on construction sites. And, while most sites follow strict health and safety rules to ensure that these dangers are not a threat to their workers, accidents can and do happen, leading to permanent disabilities or even wrongful death.

Construction site accidents may stem from—

  • Negligence by supervisors or contractors
  • Negligence of site workers
  • Inappropriate behavior of site workers
  • Defective machinery
  • Drinking or drugs
  • Negligence in the coordinating of the work of subcontractors
  • Failure to take proper safety precautions
  • Negligent guarding of hazards
  • Poor implementation of safety programs

When construction errors lead to transportation accidents, you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation for—

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Loss of benefits
  • Loss of spousal enjoyment
  • Extended physical and emotional care
  • Disfigurement
