Construction sites are dangerous places governed by strict rules and regulations to keep workers as safe as possible. Despite precautions to keep workers safe, workers are still endangered by the very nature of the work they do and the equipment they do it with. Dangerous equipment can malfunction, fellow workers can fail and construction companies can cut corners. All of this can compromise a construction worker's safety at any time.
When construction workers are injured on the site, there may be legal options available to them. Many workers believe that they will be taken care of by workers compensation, but few realize that many of the benefits of workers compensation must be fought for. Additionally, workers compensation may not provide enough money to take care of all an injured worker's needs. For this reason, it is a good idea to contact an experienced Chicago construction injury lawyer for advice.
A good attorney can not only tell you what your rights are as an injured construction worker, but help you fight to protect those rights. In some instances, constructions companies, foremen and even equipment manufacturers may be legally responsible for your injuries. An attorney with significant experience handling construction accident claims should be able to help you determine who is ultimately at fault for your accident and help you fight for the financial compensation you need and deserve.
