Skilled And Caring Construction Negligence Attorneys
Every year, construction workers are exposed to numerous hazards and unsafe working conditions.
At the law offices of Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd., our law firm has spent the last 55 years fighting for the rights of workers injured on the job and for families who have suffered the tragic loss of a loved one due to a fatal construction accident.
Since the repeal of the Illinois Structural Work Act (a construction safety statute) in 1995, the law governing construction injuries has reverted to negligence principles. Our firm stays on the cutting edge of this ever-changing area of the law. It is essential to contact an Illinois personal injury lawyer if you have suffered an injury at a construction site. We can help to properly investigate and then aggressively litigate your case. Our knowledgeable attorneys have successfully handled thousands of cases, many of which have resulted in record-setting verdicts and settlements.
Typically, injuries suffered in the construction environment give rise to an immediate remedy under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act. In addition, there may also be a “third-party” claim against entities other than the injured worker’s employer.
Third parties who may be liable for an on-the-job injury include the owner of the site, the general contractor, subcontractors, the architect, engineers or inspectors. There may also be other personal injury remedies available under other legal theories such as premises liability or product liability. At the law offices of Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd., we are proud of our record of accomplishment in achieving results for clients injured on a construction site.
