Chicago, Illinois, Lawyers For Construction Accidents
A typical construction project – whether commercial or residential – requires the collaborative efforts of multiple parties. General contractors, subcontractors, equipment manufacturers, materialmen, delivery truck drivers, property owners and other parties in any combination can be on the job site on any one particular day. When an individual is injured in a construction accident arising from a third party’s negligence, that individual is entitled to damages.
Combining Experience In And Knowledge Of Construction Accidents
Steinberg, Goodman & Kalish has in-depth knowledge of construction law and knows how to hold parties responsible when they fail to properly maintain equipment, employ safe methods and practices, or keep a construction site safe. Failures at any level can result in:
- Accidents resulting from faulty forklifts and cranes
- Injuries from other types of equipment and machinery, including ladders, backhoes, saws and nail guns
- Catastrophic injuries from falling objects and debris
- Scaffolding accidents caused by lack of protection from falls
Our personal injury attorneys have experienced handling third-party construction accident claims arising from defective products. These types of personal injury claims are pursued as products liability claims. Heavy equipment is often found to be unsafe because of lack of guarding on machinery, inadequate warnings on machinery, or a design or manufacturing defect.
