Understanding Construction Accidents in Oak Lawn

Construction sites are inherently hazardous, and accidents can occur despite safety measures. These incidents can be life-altering, leading to serious injuries that may require extensive medical treatment and time away from work. Common causes of construction accidents include:

  • Falls: Unprotected edges and faulty scaffolding can lead to severe falls.
  • Equipment Malfunctions: Failure of machinery can cause unexpected accidents.
  • Struck-By Incidents: Workers can be hit by loose or unsecured materials.
  • Caught-In/Between: Crushing accidents with heavy machinery are tragically common.

Each accident has its own circumstances, and understanding these is vital in seeking justice and compensation.

Identifying Liability in Construction Accidents

Liability in construction accidents can be complex, with multiple parties potentially at fault. Identifying the responsible party is essential for a successful legal claim:
