Ironworker Accident Lawyers in Chicago
Dedicated to Helping Injured Ironworkers
Ironworkers play a vital role in the construction industry and put their lives on the line daily, continuing to create the infrastructure on which our modern communities depend. Indeed, we might say they are the “cowboys of the sky.” As we witness the construction of high-rise buildings, it is impossible to ignore the risks that these brave workers face.
How We Can Help
Some ironworkers often work on the ground around heavy machinery. Others balance on high ledges during the construction of tall buildings. They guide rebar that is unloaded from flatbed trucks by cranes. They then guide the steel rebar sections into place, forming the basic structure of modern office buildings, condominiums, and other strong, large buildings.
The Chicago personal injury law firm of Anesi Ozmon has represented countless ironworkers over the years. Rebar injury cases handled by our lawyers number in the thousands. Some of our ironworker clients have suffered injuries in fall accidents during the erection of buildings. Lacking fall protection, some lose their lives, and we help their surviving family members obtain compensation. Others are impaled or struck by rebar swung by cranes. Some suffer catastrophic injuries, such as brain injury or spinal cord injury, while others have serious broken bone injuries and could no longer work as before.
We Understand What You Are Going Through
Anesi Ozmon is a valuable resource for injured ironworkers. We handle both workers’ compensation claims and third-party liability personal injury claims.
A founding attorney of our law firm, the late Nat P. Ozmon, was one of the first lawyers to apply the Structural Work Act of Illinois. Mr. Ozmon became the voice of structural ironworkers and an advocate for safe working conditions on high-rise construction sites. His efforts led to a complete transformation of how the law was applied.
