Construction Accidents Can Be Fatal

One of Chicago’s greatest attractions is the city’s famed architecture. Sadly, the buildings and skyscrapers that are often admired have taken a toll on construction workers throughout the years. In order to build these structures, construction workers heavily rely on power tools and machinery such as cranes to successfully complete projects. These construction tools and machines often pose great danger to workers. Construction equipment like cranes are required to hoist workers and material to upper level floors and to facilitate transportation to and from construction sites. However, because cranes are inherently dangerous, crane accidents are not uncommon. Construction accidents such as a fall from a crane, the dropping of cargo or material that causes injury, or harm caused from an object falling from a height are all common causes of serious injury. In severe cases, these types of construction accidents may even lead to wrongful death. If you have been injured in a crane accident or any other type of construction accident, call an experienced Chicago workplace injury lawyer at The Horwitz Law Group: (312) 641-9200.
