Will County Construction Site Accident Injury Lawyer

Attorney for Building Site Injuries in Mokena, Plainfield and Bolingbrook

Working construction can be lucrative but it can also be dangerous. Injuries from falls, electrocution, and other hazards are all too common.

When a construction worker is injured on the job, regardless of fault, Illinois Workers' Compensation should cover your medical expenses and temporary income loss, plus a formulaic settlement if you are left with a permanent disability.

But worker's comp benefits may not cover all of your expenses and losses, particularly if you require long-term rehabilitation services or are permanently disabled. For example, workers' comp only pays two-thirds of your average weekly pay while you are off work. Family members may have to take time off work to care for you or take you to medical appointments. You may need to substantially alter your residence or mode of transportation to accommodate a disability.

If you can show that your injury was the result of another, third party's negligence, you may have a valid claim for damages against the at-fault party. This additional source of compensation could make a world of difference to your and your family's quality of life.
