Helping Victims of Construction Accidents
Catastrophic injuries often occur in construction accidents. Massive head or spinal cord injuries can result in death or permanent paralysis. Fractures, dislocations, torn tendons and ligaments or ruptured organs are but a few of the catastrophic injuries that can occur in the highly dangerous construction site.
At Noonan Perillo & Thut Ltd., our Waukegan construction accident lawyers can help you get compensation for your construction site injury. Contact us to set up a free initial consultation. We are not paid unless and until you receive compensation for your injuries.
Compensation From Those Responsible for the Construction Accident
Workers’ compensation may not be the only remedy you have after a construction site accident. Violation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and industry standards allows the injured person to recover compensation from all those responsible for an unsafe construction site.
The responsibility for safety on a construction site is not limited to the worker performing the task or his or her direct employer. Responsibility can fall on:
- The owner
- Suppliers of materials
- The general contractor
- Other subcontractors
Types of Accidents on Construction Sites
Many things can go wrong on a construction site. Injuries from falls, improperly placed ladders and scaffolds, falling materials, unguarded openings and trenches, poorly stored materials, and construction debris are too common, failure to stop work in adverse weather conditions, and entitle the injured person to compensation.
Our firm has a network of experts that will investigate your claim by reconstructing the accident and gathering evidence to help us present your case clearly and convincingly in court.
