Construction Work is Often Dangerous

Construction workers in Chicago have an inherently dangerous job. They are often working in close proximity to high-power lines while operating heavy equipment, exposed to structural dangers, and many utilize power tools on a daily basis. Many of these situations are impossible to avoid. However, overtly dangerous conditions can be mostly eliminated with proper planning and by taking adequate precautions.

The most common cause of injury on the construction site is falling. Falls are often caused by slippery, uneven surfaces or improperly placed ladders or scaffolding. Working at elevated heights on various levels can also result in fall injuries. Of course, sometimes a fall is an unavoidable accident. Nevertheless, construction injuries of all types are often due to carelessness or negligence.

When to Contact a Chicago Construction Injury Lawyer

OSHA (The Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is the regulatory agency that oversees the many regulations and laws that are supposed to be followed for the safety of everyone who works on a construction site. Not only do they impose most of these rules, but OSHA also helps to enforce them.

Disregard for these regulations may result in serious construction site injuries, necessitating construction injury lawsuits in certain situations. If you or someone you love has been seriously hurt in a construction accident caused by disregard for these rules, defective materials, inadequate training, or the carelessness of others, it is time to consult with an experienced Chicago construction injury lawyer.

Construction site accidents can cause injuries that range from minor to disastrous, with many resulting in death. Spinal cord damage, amputation, broken bones, and serious burns are not uncommon. Workers may be left deaf, blind, or partially paralyzed—forcing them off the job without another source of income available to themselves or their families.
