Construction work is physically demanding and carries the risk of serious injury. Our Chicago construction accident attorneys have represented injured construction workers in cases that range from simple to extremely complex construction accidents.
One of the main concerns we hear when a construction worker has an injury is: “How will I pay my bills if I can’t work?” What most people are surprised to find out is that they may be able to seek financial recovery for more than just their hospital bills. Many on the job construction accidents are caused by negligence and the legally responsible party can be held liable for:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
- Other compensation
If you have been injured in a construction accident, we recommend that you:
- Seek immediate medical care as soon as possible, even if you feel like you do not have an injury or the injury appears minimal
- Report the accident to the site supervisor
- File an insurance report
The next step is to schedule a consultation for legal representation. When an injured construction worker – or family member on their behalf – comes to see us for a consultation, we review the case and give advice on the next steps in the process.
Clifford Law Offices has represented construction workers who have suffered injuries or death on the job, as well as non-workers who have been injured near or while at a construction site. Our attorneys are knowledgeable and experienced and are not afraid to take on legal teams from corporations and insurance carriers.
