Accidents occur at construction sites with regularity. Despite stringent regulations about workplace safety in construction areas, the reality is that there are going to be times when injuries occur. In most situations, a person injured on the job at a construction site will be entitled to workers’ compensation insurance to help pay for their medical bills and lost wages. However, there may be times when it is appropriate for an injured worker to file a third-party personal injury lawsuit in order to recover compensation for their losses. Here, our Chicago construction site accident attorneys want to discuss when a third-party claim may be possible.
