Role of Construction Injury Lawyer

The City of Chicago is booming, and it seems that everywhere you turn there is some new building under construction or a large renovation project underway. While this represents financial success and growth for both the city and the construction companies, it is inevitable that there will be an increase in construction-related injuries. Unfortunately, construction injuries account for some of the most serious injuries incurred in the private sector. In fact, 21% of all private sector work fatalities occur on construction sites.

I Have Workers’ Comp. Why Do I Need a Lawyer?

Many workers who become injured believe they do not need a lawyer because they have workers’ compensation insurance. Depending on your particular situation, this may or may not be true. If your employer is very cooperative and willing to help you facilitate your claim, you may not need an attorney. However, not all employers are anxious to see their rates go up and are less than helpful in these situations.

Additionally, depending on how the injury occurred, you may be eligible to receive additional compensation. For instance, if you were injured due to faulty equipment, the manufacturer of the equipment may be held liable for your injuries. The only way to ensure you receive all of the compensation you are entitled to is discussing your case in detail with a qualified and dedicated construction injury lawyer.

Construction Fatalities

When the unthinkable happens, and someone you love is killed working on a construction project, it is especially important to enlist the services of an experienced attorney. You may not be thinking clearly, but when the dust settles, you will need all the financial support your loved one has earned. You may have lost the main wage earner in your family, you may have children to support, and you are entitled to compensation.
