Many employers neglect their obligations to ensure a safe workplace, which can lead to catastrophic injuries for workers or the death of a loved one.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents 

Construction sites are dynamic environments, often involving heavy machinery, heights, and intricate processes. Unfortunately, this combination can lead to various accidents. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) identified the most common causes of these dangerous incidents, including:

  • Falls from Heights: Construction workers frequently perform tasks at elevated locations. Falls from scaffolds, ladders, or rooftops are common and can result in severe injuries or fatalities.
  • Struck by Objects: Falling tools, equipment, or construction materials pose a significant risk. In a fast-paced construction site, the potential for workers to be struck by objects is ever-present.
  • Electrocution: Electrical work is intrinsic to construction projects. Accidents involving live wires, faulty equipment, or inadequate safety measures can lead to serious electrocution injuries.
  • Caught Between Objects: Construction sites often involve heavy machinery and equipment. Accidents where workers are caught between objects or machinery can result in crush injuries, amputations, or fatalities.

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Construction Accident Claim in Illinois?

In Illinois, the statute of limitations for a construction accident claim is typically two years from the date of the injury. This means that individuals who have sustained injuries in a construction accident must file legal claims within this timeframe to pursue compensation for damages. Failing to initiate a claim within the statute of limitations may result in the forfeiture of the right to seek financial recovery.
