What’s Your Case Worth?
The construction accident attorneys of Willens Law Offices have extensive experience working with individuals and workers who have been injured at construction sites.
Every year there are thousands of construction accidents which cause serious personal injury and even wrongful death. Employers, site owners, architects, insurance companies, and manufacturers of equipment can all be held responsible for inadequate safety provisions when a construction site accident occurs. In addition, the general contractor and all subcontractors are also required to provide a reasonably safe site, to warn of hazards, to hire careful employees, to coordinate job safety and to supervise safety compliance. If you have worked on a site, though, you know that not everyone takes safety seriously, and as a result construction accidents happen frequently.
People employed on construction sites work in one of the most dangerous occupations in the country. Construction accidents and injuries that can take place at a construction site include, but are not limited to:
Injuries sustained as a result of a construction accident can be severe and often career ending. Construction workers are usually well paid and have good benefits, and a loss in this income can often be devastating for the family. A Chicago construction accident attorney at Willens Law Offices can help you with your claim, as part of a firm that has been fighting successfully for the rights of those who have been injured on construction job sites for many years.
A workers’ compensation claim can, and often should be filed on behalf of an injured worker or his family, even if the injured worker is at fault, or no one is at fault. Construction companies and contractors must, by law, carry insurance regardless of the size of the company.
However, if you were injured as a result of negligence on the part of someone other than your employer, you may be able to receive additional compensation with a lawsuit against the responsible party, including:
If you win a lawsuit against one of these responsible parties, you may have to pay back workers’ compensation, but in some cases you may still receive additional compensation.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction accident, the construction accident lawyers at Willens Law Offices can help protect your rights and assist you in recovering monetary compensation that you need and deserve.
