Illinois Wall and Trench Collapse Injury Attorneys • Chicago Construction Accident Lawyers
Walls and trenches must be properly braced or shored in order for them to be sturdy and safe for people to work around. Unfortunately, excavation and shoring is often done improperly, resulting in devastating accidents and injuries.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a wall or trench collapse on a construction site, contact our law firm.
We work with a wide network of experts who can help us re-create the incident and identify the negligent party. We will then show the judge or jury how your injury or loss has impacted you and how it will affect you and your family far into the future.
