Deck Collapse Accidents
Chicago Deck Collapse Lawyers
Large buildings, stadiums and parking garages are a few examples of structures that are 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, accidents sometimes occur, with disastrous results. Many serious and catastrophic injuries, and many fatalities, have occurred in connection with deck collapses during construction of large structures.

Overloading concrete into steel frames has resulted in many fall injuries 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.
