Chicago Construction Negligence Attorneys • Dangerous Job Site Accident Lawyers Serving Chicago, Joliet, Peoria and all of Illinois
Construction work is dangerous work. Unfortunately, year in and year out, people engaged in the construction trades are exposed to numerous hazards and often 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 death of a loved one killed at a construction site.
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 law 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 to properly investigate, and then aggressively litigate your case. We have successfully handled thousands of cases for our clients 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 which 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 orproduct 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 who have suffered injuries relative to a construction site accident. No other firm comes close to our results.
