Dedicated Chicago Construction Accidents Lawyers

Chicago, IL Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction workers face some of the most dangerous working conditions in the country. If you have been injured on the job, let our attorneys fight for the compensation you deserve.

Each year, thousands of construction workers die and hundreds of thousands are injured while doing their jobs. Although construction companies are required to comply with numerous safety regulations, many of them fail to do so. In addition, even at the safest job sites, accidents and mistakes still lead to numerous serious injuries every year.

In fact, construction work is so dangerous that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) tracks construction-related injuries and deaths separately from those in other industries. It has even come up with a list of “Fatal Four” construction site injuries – the four types of injuries that lead to the most construction deaths each year.

Experienced Attorneys for Construction Site Injuries

At Malman Law, we are committed to helping construction workers and their families in Chicago obtain rightful compensation for job-related injuries and fatalities. If you have been injured or lost a loved one working construction, we want to help you stand up for your legal rights. If you are entitled to workers’ compensation, or if you have a claim for personal injuries or wrongful death, you can count on us to fight to make sure you win the money you deserve.

Just How Bad Is It for Construction Workers?

You’ve heard it before: Working construction is among the most dangerous jobs – if not the most dangerous job – in the country. Thousands of construction workers get hurt every single day. So, if you have been injured, you are not alone. Consider these additional statistics from OSHA:

  • On average, more than 13 construction workers die on the job every single day.
  • Construction deaths account for roughly 17 percent of all work-related deaths.
  • The “Fatal Four” causes of construction site deaths are: (i) falls (40 percent of all deaths); (ii) electrocutions (9 percent of all deaths); (iii) being struck by an object (8 percent of all deaths); and, (iv) being caught in or between materials or equipment (1 percent of all deaths).
  • Construction companies break so many rules that OSHA has established a “Top 10” most-frequently cited violations.
  • Hispanic and Latino workers face disproportionately high rates of construction-related fatalities.

To protect yourself now and in the future, it is vitally important that you exercise your right to seek financial compensation. At Malman Law, we will take the time to listen to you, evaluate your case, and explain your rights – and then we will fight vigorously to win the compensation that you deserve.

Seeking Compensation for Construction Site Injuries

As an injured construction worker in Chicago, you could have multiple options for seeking financial compensation. There are several parties that can potentially be held liable for construction-related accidents, and when you contact us about your injury, we will assess all of the options available for securing maximum compensation for your losses.

img

Workers’ Compensation

In many cases, construction workers are entitled to medical and disability benefits under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act. This is a state law that requires almost all employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance and pay no-fault benefits to their injured employees. Unfortunately, many construction companies fight to avoid paying for their workers’ injuries. As a result, it is generally best to hire an experienced attorney to help with your workers’ compensation claim.

img

Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

If you work as an independent contractor, or if a third-party (such as a truck driver, subcontractor, tool manufacturer, or engineering firm) is responsible for you or your loved one’s injury, you may be able to seek additional compensation through a claim for personal injuries or wrongful death. While workers’ compensation benefits are limited, there are no limits on the compensation you can recover with these other types of claims.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
