These injuries are often suffered from falls, electrocution, or being hit by objects. Injuries at construction sites can be severe and life-changing. In Illinois, there are special laws in place to protect the health and safety of construction workers. Unfortunately, these laws are not always followed. Injuries are common to the neck, back, and eyes.
Common injuries for construction accident victims include collapsed or defective scaffolding, faulty ladders, steep stairs, unsecured ladders, falling objects, improperly installed objects, tool malfunction, demolition, contact with dangerous substances or lack of supply of protective gear like goggles or breathing apparatus.
There are many different types of construction accidents, some of which include:
Construction accidents are governed under negligence law which required the injured worker to show that their employer or the owner of property had a duty and breached a duty to the injured person. The injured worker must also show that their injury was caused by the owner of the property or the employer’s negligence.
