DuPage County Construction Accident Injury Lawyer
Work Site Accident Attorney Serving Burr Ridge, Bolingbrook and Naperville
Construction sites are inherently dangerous places to work and visit. With heavy equipment, open trenches, scaffolding, power tools, and construction materials throughout the premises, a minor mistake can lead to a serious and devastating injury. At the Law Office of Martoccio & Martoccio, our attorneys are experienced in handling all types of construction accident injuries. We understand the serious impact an injury can have on a construction worker’s life and livelihood, and we fight to ensure you receive the compensation you need for your injuries.
Workers’ Compensation for Construction Accidents
If you are injured on a construction site while at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits under your employer’s insurance policy. These benefits typically cover your medical bills, at least part of your lost wages, vocational rehabilitation if you can’t go back to work, and money for permanent disability. Workers’ compensation benefits also include compensation for the death of a loved one. Insurance companies often try to minimize the pay out for workers’ compensation claims, so it is important to have an experienced attorney to advocate for your interests. At the Law Office of Martoccio & Martoccio, we are skilled in handling workers’ compensation claims. Our attorneys make sure you get all of your expenses covered and you receive the compensation you deserve.
Third-Party Personal Injury Claims for Construction Accidents
Liability for construction accidents is often attributable to multiple parties. Even if you are injured while on the job, there may be another party beside your employer who shares liability for your accident. In these cases, the law allows you to file a personal injury claim against that third party in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. Damages for personal injury claims can exceed those for workers’ compensation claims because they may include damages for pain and suffering. Our skilled personal injury attorneys are experienced in handling third-party personal injury claims for construction accident. Our priority is obtaining the maximum possible compensation for your injuries from all liable parties.
