Causes of Construction Accidents

Construction accident injuries can be caused by a number of different things, but some of the more common causes of construction accidents include:

Liability for Construction Accidents

Construction general contractors and subcontractors have an obligation to maintain a safe working environment and to follow Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) regulations. If a general contractor, subcontractor, equipment manufacturer, or construction worker fails to live comply with the applicable standard of care, and an accident occurs, he or she could be liable for any resulting injuries or deaths.

Construction accident lawsuits often involve several negligent parties, with complex issues of comparative negligence and multiple defendants, making it imperative to consult with an experienced construction accident lawyer. For more than 30 years, the Chicago accident and injury lawyers at Cary J. Wintroub & Associates have focused on representing the victims of serious accidents and helping them to obtain full and fair financial recovery for their injuries and damages.

Workers’ Compensation Claim

The Illinois Worker’s Compensation Act provides benefits to injured workers, including construction workers, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. Workers’ compensation benefits – such as medical expenses, vocational rehabilitation benefits, and disability payments – depend on the extent of the injuries and the injured worker’s wages. Although the Act prohibits an injured construction worker from suing his or her employer, the injured construction worker may be able to file a third-party claim against any negligent third parties, such as an equipment manufacturer, general contractor, or another subcontractor.
