Construction Accident Attorneys in Rockford, IL Fighting for You

Knowledgeable representation after a serious workplace injury

Construction sites are one of the most dangerous places to work. Workers are surrounded by heavy machinery, often working from heights, and there is a real potential for falling debris. Even when safety precautions are taken, injuries may still occur. At Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., our attorneys are dedicated to fighting for your rights after a work accident leads to a serious injury. If you have suffered an injury on a construction site, we can help you file a claim.

Common causes of construction accident injuries

Because of the inherent dangers of construction sites, there are many different situations that could lead to an accident or injury. Some common causes of these injuries include:

  • Falls from scaffolding
  • Slips and falls
  • Electrocutions
  • Falling debris
  • Getting caught in-between objects or materials
  • Fires and explosions
  • Overexertion
  • Machinery accidents
  • Getting hit by a vehicle
  • Trench collapse

These accidents can cause serious injuries, from severe burns to brain injuries. With those injuries comes expensive medical bills and lost income. You need to supplement the financial losses that an on-the-job injury causes. With the help of our experienced personal injury attorneys, we can help you file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations.

Determining liability in an Illinois construction accident

There are many different people involved in working on a construction site, so proving liability in an accident can be complicated. Some of the people or entities that may be at fault include:

  • Site owners
  • Engineers
  • Architects
  • General contractors
  • Sub-contractors
  • Site managers
  • Equipment manufacturers
  • Drivers of worksite vehicles

We look closely at the circumstances surrounding your accident to determine if negligence was a factor. Even if it wasn’t, you may still be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
