Lake County Work Injury Lawyers
Helping Victims of Workplace Accidents Recover Compensation
Workers, passersby, and drivers on construction sites are vulnerable to the often dangerous conditions and the potential for negligence. Operating heavy equipment, working on scaffolds, and using dangerous power tools are all potential hazards. If you or someone you love has suffered an injury on a construction site, you may be entitled to significant compensation.
Work Injury Cases We Handle
Owners and contractors have an obligation to keep work sites safe. If there is an accident, you may be able to bring a claim against the owner, general contractor, or other subcontractors, as well as a workers’ compensation claim.
We have substantial experience in this area of the law and have handled claims involving:
- Scaffolding accidents
- Ladder falls
- Heavy machinery
- Driver accidents
- Failed maintenance/slip and fall
- Crane accidents
- Job site injuries
- Asbestos litigation
- Electrical accidents
If you were injured in the course of performing employment duties, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. However, workers’ compensation claims are only valid against your employer and limit your recovery. You may be eligible for additional compensation, however, if a contractor, subcontractor, manufacturer, property owner, or other third party was involved in your accident. Our legal team in Lake County can investigate after a construction site accident and pursue every valid claim against negligent third parties.
