City Construction Accidents

Thousands of people are seriously injured every year as a result of construction accidents. While many attorneys have experience in construction accident cases, only a limited number of attorneys have filed construction accident claims against the government. Since special laws have been enacted to limit the government’s liability, it is important that you retain an Illinois government liability attorney familiar with this unique type of claim.

At Kanoski Bresney, we have been fighting on behalf of accident victims since 1979. Our attorneys have handled thousands of personal injury claims and have successfully obtained compensation on behalf of clients injured as a result of a city construction project.

Causes Of Injury

City construction projects can cause significant hazards. People may be injured by a city project in a number of contexts:

  • Injuries from the construction of a park, library, convention center or other government property
  • Road or sidewalk construction
  • Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents
  • Auto accidents caused by construction hazards
  • On-the-job injuries
  • Falls from heights (falls from scaffolding, ladders or a building)
  • Pedestrians injured by falling objects

Our attorneys represent injured government workers as well as pedestrians who may have been injured while walking through or near a city construction project. We handle both workers’ compensation and personal injury claims.
