Recently, Chicago personal injury attorney John J. Perconti of Levin & Perconti settled a workplace injury lawsuit for $600,000 on behalf of a heating and air conditioning foreman who was injured on a job site. The construction accident occurred in Chicago in February 2004 when the victim tripped on a piece of steel that was lying in a passageway of the construction site where he was working. When he fell, he suffered a serious personal injury to his back that required several surgeries. The lawsuit alleged, among other things, that the construction company failed to provide the victim with a safe place work, failed to warn the victim of the dangerous conditions, failed to provide adequate safeguards to prevent him from injury and failed to remove debris from the passageway.
