Motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of serious injuries and accidental death. Vehicle accidents are also a leading cause of accidents on construction sites, including the following:
- Trucks with construction materials hitting workers as they enter or exit the job site
- Trucks accidentally bumping into building materials, causing them to fall on workers
- Vehicles driving too close to an excavation, causing a cave-in if shoring was done improperly or missing
- Vehicles hitting other vehicles on the construction site
As with any type of motor vehicle accident, when a company allows an employee to drive a vehicle, the company is sharing liability for the driver’s actions behind the wheel.

Financial Recovery for Victims of Construction Vehicle Accidents in Chicago
Companies that have more to lose are more willing to fight to minimize the damages they have to pay. They will hire investigators and defense attorneys immediately after a construction accident has occurred in order to defend themselves against an injury claim. If they can, they will shift the blame to the victim.
At GWC Injury Lawyers, our construction accident lawyers have seen it all. We’ve been helping injured workers for more than 40 years. We know how accidents can happen on the job site. We have our own investigators who help us gather evidence and take testimony from witnesses in order to prove our client’s case.
You may have received a settlement offer immediately after the accident occurred. Often, these early offers are for far less money than your injury will cost you. Before you accept any offer from an insurance company, talk to an experienced construction accident lawyer so you understand your rights.
