Illinois Construction Accidents Lawyer
Injured at a Construction Site?
Construction sites are among the most dangerous workplaces. Workers suffer serious injuries or are killed at building sites, demolition projects, road construction sites and other locations. Fortunately, an injured worker has options. The workers compensation system provides medical benefits and income replacement to injured workers. In addition, if a negligent third party caused the accident and injury, the employee may be able to file a personal injury claim.
What a Lawyer Can Do to Help
At the law firm of Frederick & Hagle, our attorneys help injured construction workers get the benefits they need and deserve. We will help you file your worker’s compensation claim and attend any necessary hearings. We can file an additional claim with the insurance company of a third party (such as another contractor or delivery truck’s employer) to obtain justice and full compensation. We seek a variety of disability awards and have handled cases involving pay differentials between old and new jobs. Our lawyers can take your case as far as needed in order to get the results you deserve.
Advice to Injured Construction Workers
We urge people injured on the job to call an attorney as soon as possible to learn about their rights and options. You cannot be fired because you exercised your right to seek compensation for your injuries and lost wages. Our lawyers protect workers from employers’ illegal behavior and help them assert their rights.
Examples of Construction Accident Cases
Our practice includes cases involving falls from roofs, cranes and scaffolding; injuries from falling debris; quadriplegia from a spinal cord injury; burns from an electrical accident or welding torch malfunction; repetitive trauma injury; illness from exposure to hazardous materials; and injuries from being hit by a car at a road construction site.
