Construction Accident Attorneys in Geneva

Were You Injured on a Construction Site in DeKalb or Kane Counties?

It comes as no surprise that any type of construction work has the potential to be dangerous. With most jobs taking place at treacherous heights, utilizing heavy machinery, involving power lines or electrical wiring, and/or entailing potential exposure to toxic chemicals or materials, the risk of injury or fatality is high. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 163 fatal work injuries in Illinois in 2017. Of these, 29 were construction-related workplace fatalities, accounting for 16%. These numbers are high and do not even take into account the number of non-fatal construction accidents. If you’ve been injured due to a workplace accident, it is important to seek proper legal guidance to advocate for you, let you recuperate, and help you pursue the workers’ compensation benefits to which you’re entitled.

Construction Accidents & Third-Party Liability

In most instances, when construction workers are injured on the job, they cannot sue their employers. However, a third party could be held liable for negligence. Owners, architects, contractors, and equipment or machinery manufacturers can all be held liable for accidents resulting from inadequate safety measures.

General contractors, including subcontractors, are duty-bound to:

  • Warn of possible hazards on the construction site
  • Check that all safety specifications are followed
  • Coordinate job safety for all construction workers
  • Hire employees who will take job safety seriously and utilize proper caution

Manufacturers of equipment or machinery, such as cranes, tractors, scaffolding, hoists, or power tools, are held responsible for the safety of their products. Should a construction accident occur due to improper safety measures being followed in production of the equipment or machinery, liability may be placed on the manufacturer.
