Construction Worker Falls Protection Lawyers

Workers on a construction site face serious dangers on a daily basis. Their safety, while paramount, is not always protected. Poor planning, faulty materials and ineffective safety gear can all lead to devastating injuries with life-altering consequences.

In Chicago, several policies are in place for protecting construction workers from dangerous falls. This is typically referred to as fall protection. At Steinberg, Goodman & Kalish, our lawyers have experience representing injured individuals. As soon as we accept your case, we will investigate every aspect of your injury to gain a clear understanding regarding liability. In many cases, you will have a personal injury claim outside of any workers' compensation claim. We can advise you on your options for monetary recovery.

Construction Site Injury Attorneys

A violation of the notion of fall protection can come in many forms, including:

  • Failure to provide safety equipment such as belts and harnesses
  • Failure to provide adequate floor boards
  • Failure to provide adequate guard rails
  • Failure to cover holes, cracks or dangerous flooring
  • Failure to secure materials stored at heights

Whether you have fallen, or materials have fallen and struck you, it is wise to contact an attorney to discuss your case. If you are a subcontractor, the supervisory staff must provide a safe place to work. If they fail to do so, you might be able to recover monetary compensation through a  construction accident injury lawsuit. Contact our firm today.
