We Fight For Clients After A Deck Collapse Injury

Large buildings, stadiums and parking garages are a few examples of structures constructed in part by suspending large slabs of concrete high above ground level. Ironworkers erect decking to serve as underpinnings of concrete floors. Wooden frames are then added to define the exact parameters of the concrete decks. In the process of constructing the steel and wooden structures or pouring the concrete, disastrous accidents sometimes occur. Many serious and catastrophic injuries, and many fatalities, have occurred in connection with deck collapses during construction of large structures.

A Long History Of Defending Iron Workers

Causes of deck collapses in construction contexts can range from incorrectly erected steel beams to the failure of bolts holding framing structures together. Overloading concrete into steel frames has also resulted in many fall and crush injuries. Whatever the cause, it is important to discover it in order to prevent future similar accidents and to build strong cases for compensation for the injured. Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd. successfully represented ironworkers injured in the 1993 Chicago post office collapse.

Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd. has a strong track record of recovery of damages caused by deck collapse accidents. After a deck collapse, attorneys at our law firm apply knowledge and skill gained through years of litigation in the area of personal injury law. We pursue and obtain compensation for surviving family members and seriously injured construction workers.
