Deadly construction accidents in Chicago

Construction projects are happening across Chicago every day. The construction industry is an important job industry, but it's also one of the most dangerous. Tragically, some construction workers lose their lives as a result of performing their job duties. If a construction accident has caused a death in your family, we know no amount of compensation can reverse your grief or take the loss away, but our lawyers are ready to stand at your side, holding the responsible person or parties accountable.

There are many ways a work accident can be fatal. Some of the most common deadly scenarios are:

  • Falls from heights
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Accidents involving heavy machinery
  • Explosions
  • Fires
  • Electrocution
  • Scaffolding collapse

You deserve an experienced advocate on your side. We fight every day on behalf of families who have lost a loved one because of someone else's negligence. We have extensive experience, resources and knowledge to determine liability for your loved one's death. If someone else's negligence caused the fatality, you may be entitled to compensation. You are also entitled to death benefits if your loved one's employer carries workers' compensation benefits.
