Bystanders and passersby face injury risks near construction sites
It is no secret that the city of Chicago, including the Aurora suburb, is constantly undergoing change and growth. This means that we have a bustling construction industry erecting new buildings, homes and commercial properties. While this keeps the Illinois economy in good shape, it may pose injury risks for many of our neighbors.
You don’t have to be employed in the building industry to suffer injuries in a construction accident. Suppose you are walking to work, and your path takes you near a construction site. If the supervisors and workers are not taking steps to enhance site safety, an onsite accident may affect your physical well-being.
For example, if a worker drops a heavy tool from a scaffold as you walk past, it could hit you and cause a serious brain injury. As you might imagine, such an injury could leave you disabled on a temporary or permanent basis. Other ways construction accidents injure innocent parties include:
We want you to know that it is possible to find a legal solution if you suffer injuries near construction sites. In many cases, the owner of a construction company or another party may be held liable for bystander harm.
If you take your story to an injury attorney, he or she can help you investigate the incident thoroughly. When negligence on the part of a worker or a contractor caused or contributed to your suffering, the law is on your side.
