“We have the experience, the compassion that’s necessary, and we get results.”
What You Are Entitled To Following An Accident On An Illinois Construction Site
If you have been injured in a workplace accident, you are entitled to receive compensation for the treatment of your injuries. Despite the widespread belief to the contrary, you are allowed to seek care from any doctor or specialist you desire. You are also entitled to recover 67% of your weekly wages and additional compensation for injuries that result in disabilities under Illinois’ workers’ compensation law. When these benefits are not sufficient to cover your expenses, our attorneys will work to determine whether you can file a lawsuit for negligence or product liability against a company which may have played a role in your injury.
- Ensure proper medical care. Ensure that you receive the proper medical attention that you deserve.
- Provide knowledge. Readily identify important issues in a given case such as the legal theories of liability that should be pursued and the entities that should be named as defendants in the litigation.
- Utilize experience. Know how to pursue full compensation in workers’ compensation, personal injury and wrongful death cases.
ACCIDENTS HURT, EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS CAN HELP.
Do I need a lawyer?
When it comes to making this decision we ask our clients to keep in mind that defendants frequently have teams of attorneys on staff prepared to find ways to pay out as little as possible on every claim. So why not hire a team of accomplished attorneys who focus on personal injury litigation to level the playing field for you?
What is the first step I should take if I am injured?
Seek the medical attention that you need. The most important thing is taking care of your injury. Forget about the case, medical care trumps everything.
What is negligence?
Negligence is a large factor of a personal injury case. This involves someone who is careless or reckless and causes harm to another person. No one ever asks to be injured, but when one person’s negligence has significantly impacted another person’s life we are here to care about, defend and protect you. Proving negligence in a personal injury case is essential to helping our clients obtain the compensation that they deserve.
Should I accept an offer from the insurance company?
It is common for an insurance company to offer a settlement after an accident occurs. To some, the settlement may seem like a good offer but you need to understand why it is not. These insurance companies make money by offering you the least amount of compensation possible. Your case is most likely worth a lot more than what the insurance company will offer you. It is highly recommended that you never accept an offer from an insurance company without speaking to an attorney first. We can provide you with better care and compensation than any insurance company can offer.
