Schaumburg Personal Injury Lawyer
In Des Plaines, IL, a construction worker was killed while three others were severely injured when a forty-five ton steel beam fell on them while working on Jane Addams Memorial Tollway. Before the accident, the construction workers were building on an I-90 construction site at Touhy Avenue around three in the morning the massive beam came hurling down during construction, injuring the four workers. According to members of the construction crew, the forty-five ton steel beam that they were set to replace and repair was one-hundred and eighty-seven feet long. The workers include that they do not exactly know how the beam managed to fall—according to Illinois Chief of Police—the steel beam, used to support the bridge, was being moved by two cranes across the roadway at the time when the weight load shifted—causing it to fall.What If I’m Injured at Work?
