Construction Site Accidents

By its very nature, a construction site is typically a dangerous place. Large vehicles and machinery, unsafe building materials and unsecured objects are just some of the obstacles that pose danger to workers and bystanders alike. While construction workers may follow safety guidelines, accidents happen, often causing severe and catastrophic injuries.

 

In Illinois, injured construction workers are not limited to recovery from the state workers’ compensation act. At Leiter Law Offices, our team will diligently investigate all avenues of recovery when you or your loved one has been hurt on a construction site.

Founding lawyer Gregory Leiter is highly familiar with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards that govern work on construction sites. Using this information and the knowledge he gained as an insurance defense attorney before establishing Leiter Law Offices, our attorney can help you create a strong case that supports your injury claim.

 

Construction site accidents often have several potential sources of liability that need to be investigated. We will meet with you to learn about your circumstances and identify possible liable parties, including employers, general contractors and subcontractors. While some claims can be settled through a negotiated agreement, we will not hesitate to bring your case to trial to achieve just compensation for your injuries.
