If you or a loved one has been the victim of a construction site accident, our personal injury attorneys at Parente & Norem can help you.
Construction site accidents are a form of personal injury. Accidents that occur on construction sites are usually legally complicated. Regulation of construction sites often involves many local, state, and federal laws and rules, including OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regulations. If the victim is an employee of the construction site, workers’ compensation rules may apply. If the victim of the construction site accident died as a result of his or her injuries, wrongful death statutes may be applicable.
Because so many people are involved with a construction site, in construction site accidents it may be difficult to determine who was at fault. During any given day, there are, among others, contractors and subcontractors, delivery and service trucks and personnel, employees and independent contractors, and visitors on the construction site property.
This is where the expertise of the Chicago personal injury attorneys with Parente & Norem offers a strong advantage to the victims of construction site accidents. Using a combination of our legal skills, the legal tools available to us, and our knowledge of local, state, and federal court systems, we can help you achieve the compensation you’re legally entitled to.
