Exploring options after a construction injury

Illinois residents who work in the construction industry recognize that their jobs, by their nature, may be more dangerous than other jobs. These individuals usually work with heavy equipment and machinery, often in busy, hectic construction zones. They may be required to walk on roofs, in trenches or other areas where an accident can easily lead to serious injury.

When an accident on-the-job does occur, it is important to determine how it occurred. Was the available safety equipment on the worksite deficient? Did someone make a mistake that caused the accident? Was equipment or machinery misused? These, among many other considerations, are factors to take into account after a construction injury occurs.

Fortunately, if the accident was caused by another party's negligence or recklessness, the injury victim may be able to pursue civil court options to attempt to recover financial compensation. Injury victims may face mounting medical bills, along with days, weeks or even months of not being able to return to work and earn an income. In the worst-case scenarios, injury victims may even suffer a permanent disability due to the injury.

At our law firm, we do our best to help Illinois residents who have been injured at construction worksites. In many cases, it is necessary to conduct a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the accident in question in order to determine the available options for the injured victim.
