Advocating Tenaciously For Injured Construction Workers And Other Victims
Construction sites are incredibly dangerous for workers and passersby. In extreme cases, construction accidents can leave the victim permanently incapable of working or even prove fatal.
If you or someone you love suffered an injury at a construction site or while performing construction work, Nolan Law Group can help you. For more than four decades, our attorneys have served clients in the Chicago metro area and elsewhere throughout Illinois with all aspects of complex personal injury claims. We are well-known for our tireless, tenacious approach to recovering compensation for our clients’ damages.
What Are The Most Dangerous Construction Accidents?
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the four construction incidents with the most fatalities include:
- Falls from heights
- Struck by objects or machinery
- Caught between surfaces or objects
Employers have an obligation to create safe environments for employees and anyone who might pass through the construction site. When they fail to uphold this obligation, innocent people can experience horrible consequences such as brain injuries, amputation or paralysis.
Helping Workers Explore Their Options
If you are a construction worker, you might be considering filing a workers’ compensation claim to get benefits for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. However, you might also have the grounds to file a personal injury claim for additional compensation. Many workplace construction accidents involve a third party such as an equipment manufacturer, subcontractor, security firm or another company. Our litigation attorneys can help you explore your options for recovering additional compensation through an injury claim.
