Construction workers on Cook County roads are at risk of injuries and death from moving vehicles and construction equipment. In a recent work-related accident, a Chicago construction worker was injured after being hit in the head with a construction bucket.
Two construction workers were killed when they fell 90 feet after a wagon lift they were riding in collapsed. The workers were on a perch off Interstate 85 near Montgomery while they worked on the Montgomery Outer Loop. The family has filed a wrongful-death suit.
