Ladder Falls Work With a Team With a History of Excellence

Chicago Ladder & Scaffold Fall Lawyers

Committed to Protecting Clients’ Rights

Nat P. Ozmon, one of the founding attorneys of Anesi Ozmon, was a pioneer in the laws that provide protection to injured construction workers. Specifically, he discovered an underutilized law pertaining to scaffold accidents and began using it to his clients’ advantage. His diligence and drive to protect workers’ rights are part of our legacy.

Even though the Illinois Structural Work Act was repealed in 1995, our firm made history in the area of scaffolding fall lawsuits, and we continue to offer extensive experience in this important area.

We were the first firm to put the scaffolding law to use, one of the most beneficial acts for workers in the state of Illinois. We were also one of the first law firms to focus on workers’ compensation claims in Chicago.

If you or a loved one has fallen off scaffolding or a ladder, turn to our law firm for the most experienced, compassionate, and capable legal representation. At Anesi Ozmon, we handle both workers’ compensation claims and injury lawsuits for construction accident victims throughout Cook County and Illinois.
