Construction Site Injury Claims & Compensation

Construction sites are potentially hazardous due to the equipment used, the temporary environment where structures are quickly assembled and disassembled, and the very physical nature of the job at hand. Workers may suffer minor scrapes or bruises while moving materials or they may be hit by falling debris and suffer a traumatic brain injury.

Construction site injuries often occur because of:

  • Falls from heights
  • Falling objects
  • Heavy equipment malfunctions
  • Swinging cranes
  • Toxic chemicals
  • Defective ladders
  • Malfunctioning forklifts or elevators
  • Poorly constructed scaffolding
  • Unsafe electrical fixtures and outlets
  • Trench collapses
  • Lift bucket accidents

State law says that workers injured on job sites must file a workers’ compensation claim for medical bills, lost wages, and any other damages available by law in lieu of suing employers. Our Northwest Indiana construction accident attorneys have a thorough understanding of the statutes enforced by the both the Indiana Department of Labor and the Illinois Department of Labor, and can assist you with the process of notifying your employer of your injury and filing all necessary paperwork in a timely fashion.

  • Property owners were negligent
  • Other workers failed to do their duties
  • Other construction companies were doing work at the same location
