Chicago Worksite Injury Attorneys

Representing the Victims of Construction Accidents throughout Illinois

Construction worksites are a hub of activity, with heavy equipment and hazardous working conditions. Because construction worksites are incredibly dangerous places, they are highly regulated and subject to several Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) safety regulations. Nonetheless, accidents and injuries can – and do – happen on construction worksites.

The Chicago construction worksite accident attorneys at Cogan & Power, P.C.  focus on helping the victims of construction accidents, including those that take place on a construction worksite, to recover the compensation that they need and deserve. We have obtained a number of multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of construction accident victims, including a nearly $7 million settlement for a 61-year-old man who lost his lower leg in a construction zone accident.

If you or a loved one suffered construction worksite injuries, contact our office at (312) 477-2500 to schedule a free consultation to discuss a possible legal claim. If you cannot come to our offices in downtown Chicago, we will come to you. And because we take cases on a contingency basis, you will not pay any fee unless we get you compensation.

Types of Construction Accidents that Result in Industrial Injuries

Construction worksite injuries can happen in a number of workplace accidents, including:

Possible Legal Claims for Construction Worksite Injuries

Construction workers who are injured on the worksite in an on-the-job accident are generally entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Additionally, depending on the circumstances that led to construction worksite injuries, an injured construction worker may also be able to pursue a personal injury action against any negligent third parties. For instance, general contractors are responsible for ensuring that the construction worksite is safe, and may be held liable for any construction worksite injuries that occur as a result of negligence. Similarly, if a worksite injury is caused by a defective construction vehicle, the vehicle manufacturer could be held liable for the injuries.

While the amount of compensation that a person receives in a personal injury lawsuit depends on the extent of the injuries and the cause of the accident, victims of construction worksite accidents may be entitled to compensatory damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages (past and future)
  • Property damages
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of normal life
