Has a Scaffolding Accident or Other Type of Fall Injury Affected You and Your Family?
Illinois construction and industrial workers who perform their job duties high above ground put their trust in the safety of their equipment along with the training and diligence of others on the site. Falls from scaffolding and scaffold collapses often result in catastrophic injuries or wrongful death, and many result from someone’s negligence.
Our team of experienced trial lawyers is here to investigate and provide informed legal counsel if you have been injured in a scaffolding accident or other construction site accident. We fight for the rights of clients in the western suburbs and throughout the state.
Workers’ compensation may not be your only source of recovery — or your most valuable — if we determine that someone other than your employer caused your accident.
Please contact us if you have been injured in a scaffolding accident and are concerned about the future. Our attorneys handle both workers’ compensation and third-party liability claims for scaffolding accident injuries. For a free consultation, call 630-848-9294 or send us a message online.
Investigation to Expose Product Defects and Job Site Negligence
The most common causes of scaffolding-related accidents and injuries include:
- Scaffolding defects such as weak planking and supports, missing safety railings or other problems that can cause a collapse or fall
- Impact from falling debris, often dropped from a crane or other piece of heavy construction equipment
- Contractor and subcontractor failures to provide proper safety equipment and take essential precautions in windy or wet weather
Falls from scaffolding to the ground or a concrete floor almost always have serious outcomes, ranging from broken bones to traumatic brain injury and paralysis. Our Naperville and Joliet scaffolding accident attorneys apply diligence and tenacity to all aspects of your case, targeting evidence of the parties responsible for the accident, your needs and who can be held legally accountable.
