WORKERS SHOULD BE PROTECTED AT THE WORKPLACE
The labor attorneys at the Chicago-based SHEA LAW GROUP feel that companies should protect their workers and those that fail to must be held accountable for their negligence. Although construction companies are required under Illinois labor law to inspect their job sites with engineering experts and implement safety policies and procedures, these laws aren’t followed consistently. Construction workers still face a greater risk of work-related injury than any other profession in the United States. Laws were created to protect construction workers from work site-related accidents, and our attorneys feel that most workplace accidents are avoidable and inexcusable.
