Construction Site Accident Lawyers

We have provided legal advice and representation to clients in communities throughout Illinois who were injured in scaffolding accidents. These accidents can result from a number of situations, including:

  • Defective materials
  • Faulty or nonexistent safety equipment
  • Failure to recognize dangerous weather conditions
  • Faulty construction

Due to the height of a scaffolding, these falls typically result in serious injuries including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, neck injuries or traumatic brain injuries. Outside of a workers' compensation component, these accidents can commonly be traced back to a nonemployee cause. Often, the subcontractor who actually erected the scaffolding was not properly trained or the company manufactured the scaffolding using substandard materials. Whatever the case may be, our attorneys will evaluate your case and provide specific direction on how best to proceed.
