Chicago Construction & Workplace Accident Lawyers
Job sites can become locations where accidents and injuries occur. It is commonly known that construction sites are among the places most dangerous for potential injury to a worker or visitor. However, even less risky places, from office buildings to schools, warehouses, malls, factories, hospitals, and industrial sites may lead to injuries for employees and others, whether from slippery floors to falling objects or other safety hazards.

We are ready to fully investigate the facts and circumstances of your case to support your claim, whether it involves workers’ compensation or a third-party claim. Our team will always fight for favorable results through intense claim preparation, skilled negotiation, or by trial in court, depending on the nature of your case.

Most construction and workplace accidents resulting in injury to workers go through the state’s workers’ compensation system. This system is designed to cover lost wages and medical expenses. It relieves employers of liability in accidents sustained by their workers. However, working your way through the system is not always easy and denied claims are common. That is why it is important to hire a law firm that knows how to build claims properly and function as your staunch advocate.
In other cases, your job injury may have been due to the negligence or wrongdoing of a third party. Examples of this include employees who drive company vehicles as part of their job hit in traffic accidents by at-fault drivers or construction workers who are injured due to manufacturing defects of heavy equipment or tools used on the job site.
Furthermore, construction companies or other employers who knowingly violate state or federal safety regulations in their workplaces may be subject to claims and lawsuits outside of the workers’ compensation system. Where proof is shown that they put their workers at risk, they may be held liable for additional compensation not available by workers’ compensation, such as for pain and suffering.

Construction and industrial site accidents can result in severe consequences, from death to broken bones, brain injuries, amputations, burns, and more. Falls, being struck by objects or caught between them, electrocutions, and toxic chemical exposure are common causes of accidents in these job sites.
