Chicago Construction Accident Attorneys

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that almost 6.5 million people work at approximately 252,000 construction sites across the nation on any given day.  Working on these sites requires safety gear, proper training, and well-maintained equipment. When construction workers lack any of these, injuries are more likely to occur.

Individuals injured in a construction accident often encounter several medical and financial issues. They may face a long recovery, leaving them unable to work and wondering how they will pay for their basic needs in addition to their mounting medical expenses. If this sounds familiar, you might be wondering if you should contact an attorney. More often than not, if you are injured in a construction accident, you will benefit from meeting with the skilled Chicago workers’ compensation lawyers at The Horwitz Law Group. They can help you manage your financial and medical issues and seek the compensation you deserve for your injuries and financial losses. 

Types of Construction Accident Injuries

A variety of hazards exist on construction sites, and injuries sustained on a construction site can be quite severe. Some may last a lifetime or leave the victim unable to return to work or participate in activities they once enjoyed. Other injuries may cause months of pain and require extensive therapy or surgeries. The more serious your injuries are, the more compensation you might be entitled to recover. Common types of construction accident injuries include:

  • Burns
  • Electrocution
  • Eye injuries leading to vision impairment or blindness
  • Broken bones
  • Neck or back injuries
  • Spinal cord injury, which may cause paraplegia or quadriplegia
  • Illnesses caused by toxic chemical exposure
  • Head injuries
  • Brain injuries

How Chicago Construction Accident Attorneys Can Help

When you meet with an attorney, they will review the circumstances of your construction accident and the extent of your injuries. They will need to be certain that your case shows one or both of the following:

  • Your injuries occurred in the course of your employment to qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, and/or
  • A third party caused your injuries and you can file an insurance claim to hold them liable for your losses

Once you hire a lawyer, they will identify who is liable for your injuries, if anyone. In some cases, you might qualify for workers’ compensation benefits as well as have the right to file an injury claim. Each case is different, and your attorney can advise you on the best path to maximum financial recovery in your case.
