Workers injured at Illinois construction site

Several weeks ago, this blog touched on the subject of accidents on construction sites and negligent employers in a general way. Let's turn to a recent example from Illinois to help illustrate how construction and industrial accidents can occur, and what an injured worker may be facing in the aftermath.

What is duty and breach in an Illinois industrial accident?

We have briefly explored the basics of the concept of negligence in the context of accidents involving motor vehicles. However, the theory of negligence can be used in Illinois in cases above and beyond car wrecks. In the context of an injury related to an industrial accident, for instance, it is quite possible that someone not following the rules, or an employer not being responsible for worker safety in some manner, has led to the situation in which a worker finds themselves seriously injured. In such cases, receiving compensation for their injuries may require a victim to show that the other party had a duty to the victim, breached that duty, and that the breach was both the direct and foreseeable cause of the damage that occurred to the victim.
