According to recent reports from the Chicago Police Department, two fatal construction accidents occurred in the city within a 3-day period. The first incident took place on Thursday, September 12th, when a 48-year-old construction worker was trapped under an asphalt-grinding machine at a job site. The man suffered fatal injuries and passed away.
Then on September 14th, a 47-year-old worker was crushed between two vehicles at a construction site. The man was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital, but he succumbed to his injuries early the next morning. The exact causes of these fatalities remain under investigation. At this time, both are being viewed as tragic construction accidents.
The construction industry is inherently dangerous. A malfunctioning piece of machinery, an improperly trained worker, a defective tool, poor designs, a distracted contractor, substandard materials, and various other factors can cause serious accidents and injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a construction accident, it is vital that you obtain legal representation at once.
