Chicago Construction Accident Lawyers

Chicago Construction Accident LawyerHow we can help with your construction accident

Have you suffered injuries in a construction accident? At the Law Offices of Meyer & Blumenshine, our construction accident lawyers are advocates for the right of all employees to labor in a safe work environment. Moreover, we understand that when your workplace is a construction site, injuries can be more severe than typical workplace injuries due to the dangerous circumstances. If you are injured in a construction accident, we can help you deal with the insurance company, file a claim, and get the compensation you deserve. Construction workers along with visitors that are injured while on-site visiting a construction site may be able to file a claim for a construction injury. The outcome of a construction mishap can encompass injuries that prevent the injured from making a living to wrongful death.

Protecting your rights by conducting a thorough investigation

Working alongside specialists, investigative authorities, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), our construction lawyers can carefully examine the accident scene and take necessary legal measures to preserve evidence. We can get to the bottom of your case—if negligence was a cause of your construction injury, we can find out what happened.

Do you have a case?

As we examine the details of your case, our construction attorneys consult with OSHA experts and mechanical design and equipment experts, as well as life care and vocational authorities, all of whom can give us a clear, full picture of the accident and your injury. As we answer the following questions, we can formulate an effective plan for helping you attain your rightful compensation:

  • What caused the accident? Was it preventable? Did negligence play a part?
  • Were unsafe plans, procedures, tools, equipment, or other products involved?
  • What costs have you already incurred due to your injury?
  • What further costs can be expected over time?
  • Is there any long-term disability, and if so, how is it likely to affect your quality of life and your ability to continue working?
  • Were any OSHA violations present?

One effective way OSHA protects construction workers is by regulating work conditions. When work conditions are unsafe, they often involve one or more violations of OSHA safety codes. If violations are discovered, it may factor into your eligibility for compensation.

Sometimes workers compensation is not enough

The coverage you can get through workers compensation benefits has limits. For example, you cannot receive compensation for pain and suffering. But workers comp can often cover the real costs of your injury. The only way you can be sure to obtain the maximum compensation possible is with the help of an experienced and knowledgeable construction accident attorney.
