DuPage County Construction Accident Injury Attorney

Workers' Compensation Attorneys for Construction Injuries throughout Illinois

Construction is one of the most dangerous industries in which to work. Construction workers are regularly subjected to hazardous conditions that make them more susceptible to accidents and serious injuries. Construction accidents and injuries can result in high medical bills, lost wages, and many other hardships. Construction workers who suffer injuries or illnesses on the job are often eligible for workers' compensation from their employer. It can be difficult, however, to navigate the complexities of filing a workers' comp claim. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury, illness, or death on a construction site, it is important to speak with an experienced workers' compensation attorney so you understand your options.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents in Illinois

There are numerous hazards that can lead to construction site accidents. These include:

  • Overexertion while lifting heavy objects;
  • Falls from ladders, scaffolds, roofs, and beams;
  • Being struck by falling objects;
  • Accidents caused by heavy and/or dangerous equipment; and
  • Exposure to toxic or hazardous chemicals.

If you are injured on a construction site, it may not be as simple as filing a workers' compensation claim. In the construction industry, there are numerous contractor and subcontractor relationships, and it is not always easy to determine who your employer is and thus with whom you should be filing a claim. In addition, there are many cases in which an accident and subsequent injury may be caused by a third party other than your employer. In third party injury cases, you may be entitled to pursue damages against the responsible party under personal injury law. If you suffer a debilitating illness or injury and have worked the required number of quarters, you may also be eligible to file a Social Security Disability claim.
