Attorneys Helping Injured Construction Workers
Victims of work site accidents typically think that workers’ compensation is their only opportunity for compensation. This is not necessarily the case, particularly in construction accidents. A personal injury lawsuit against third parties may be possible. The lawyers at the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid have the experience to go beyond workers’ compensation to pursue a personal injury claim that will maximize results for construction accident victims.
Our construction injury lawyers handle all types of construction injury cases, including:
- Crane accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
- Trench collapses
- Welding accidents
- Accidents caused by defective construction tools and machinery
If you have been injured in a construction accident, our law firm can help you determine whether you can hold a third party responsible. Call 630-848-9294 or contact us online for a free consultation.
Workers’ Compensation May Not Be Your Only Option
Our Naperville attorneys have recovered millions of dollars for victims of negligence in Chicago and throughout the western suburbs. We are able to succeed in Illinois construction injury cases because we are willing to aggressively push forward, no matter what challenges are put in our path, to get compensation for our clients.
Among our success stories is a $546,000 settlement for a 50-year-old man who fractured his leg at a construction site when a piece of heavy equipment fell on it. Initially, the case involved more than 10 defendants. Four defendants contributed to the settlement during mediation.
Who Is Responsible for Your Injury?
One of the most challenging issues in construction injury cases is determining who is responsible for causing your injury. On any construction site, there may be dozens of trades present, including the general contractor and numerous subcontractors. A detailed investigation is necessary to determine all those responsible. In many construction cases, it turns out to be more than one company. We can help you identify all responsible parties to obtain maximum compensation for your injury.
Of course, when we take action, at-fault corporations will almost always point the finger at someone else. They will try to deflect blame. We know how to overcome their arguments and hold them accountable for causing you harm.
