Prompt, Thorough Investigation to Determine Next Steps

Our skilled construction accident attorneys are well-prepared to counsel and represent you after any type of injury caused by defective industrial equipment or machinery. We will move quickly to investigate and involve qualified experts if it appears you may have a valid claim after an accident at home, at school, on our roadways or elsewhere. Valid cases we have pursued or researched have involved industrial equipment and machinery such as:

  • Bulldozers, front-end loaders and other construction equipment
  • Scaffolding, ladders, work platforms and cherry pickers that pose an unacceptable risk for dangerous falls or collapses causing severe impact or crush injuries
  • Nail guns and other power tools
  • Forklifts, drill presses, conveyor belts and other equipment common on factory and warehouse floors

Proving Liability and Offering Informed Counsel to Help You Recover

We handle Illinois workers' compensation claims and appeals — but it is essential to recognize that, depending on the circumstances of your accident and injury, you may have a much more valuable claim against a negligent individual or company. In all workplace injury cases we evaluate, we thoroughly consider our client's likelihood of success with such a "third-party" claim.

Our knowledge of occupational health codes and forms of negligence that justify valid legal action — from improper maintenance of equipment to making unsafe modifications or improperly training operators — may be a tremendous asset in your effort to recover damages.
