Working with asbestos in Chicago can lead to fatal illnesses

Construction workers, automotive workers and maintenance workers face a variety of hazards every day, from working with heavy machinery and dangerous tools to falls from heights to exposure to toxic chemicals. One particular hazard that those in the construction industry in Chicago may face is exposure to asbestos. Unfortunately, even a small amount of exposure to asbestos could lead to fatal diseases.

Can manufacturers be held liable for auto defects?

Although sometimes a car accident is caused by a negligent driver, in some cases it is a defect in the car itself that leads to an accident. Faulty brakes, airbag malfunctions and engine fires can all lead to devastating accidents that injure or kill the individual operating the vehicle. Although sometimes dangerous and defective automotive products are recalled, this does not always prevent accidents from happening. When an accident is caused by a defective automobile, residents of Chicago may want to take legal action.
