Construction Accident Attorneys
We all work to earn money. If you work in construction, you also work because you take pride in being productive with your hands and building things that will be used by people for years to come.
A workplace injury can be devastating for construction workers not only because of the financial effects, but also because they often leave workers unable to fully utilize their bodies for work. There are laws designed to provide compensation for these work-related injuries, and an experienced lawyer can help you obtain the compensation you may be entitled to.
Helping Chicagoland’s Construction Workers File Workers’ Comp Claims
Our firm believes that people who work hard for a living and are injured on the job should have access to qualified legal assistance for navigating the workers’ compensation process. We only handle injury claims, which means we have experience helping people with a wide range of injuries and long-term care needs. This also means we know how to be effectively aggressive with employer insurance companies and the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC) to make sure our clients receive compensation as long as they are prevented from working.
We help construction workers injured as a result of:
- Scaffolding accidents
- Faulty/defective construction equipment
- Accidents involving construction debris
- Electrical accidents
Illinois law allows third-party claims against negligent contractors and subcontractors. By discussing your case with our experienced attorney, you will know whether you have additional options for financial recovery in addition to your workers’ comp claim.
