Construction Accidents

Construction workers face certain challenges and hazards that are unique to the industry.  Working in the construction industry is considered one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States.  Falls, mechanical equipment failure and unsafe construction sites all contribute to the thousands of construction injuries each year.  If you have been injured in a construction accident in Illinois, you may be entitled to compensation.
There are workers' compensation laws in Illinois that protect the health and safety of construction workers, which will allow you to collect benefits while you recover.  Depending on the details of your construction accident, you may also have a claim against a company other than your employer.  This is called a third party case and usually requires extensive investigation into the construction facts and circumstances.
