Construction work carries many potential hazards, due to a variety of factors. Construction often entails working with powerful equipment and heavy tools, often in locations that are inherently dangerous. Adding to the potential for danger is that often work is done under time pressures.
Construction can happen at many different sites, and includes work at new buildings; road and highway construction; homes and residential complexes; industrial construction; environmental construction; new retail developments; and demolition.
Despite various safety regulations and other preventative measures implemented in construction work, it is not uncommon for minor and major injuries, as well as fatal accidents, to occur.
Should you be injured during a construction accident, it is in your best interest to talk with an Illinois personal injury lawyer to safeguard your rights and see what legal options may be available.
