Chicago Ironworker Accident Lawyer
Ironworkers play a vital role in the construction industry. They put their lives on the line day by day, continuing to create the infrastructure that our modern communities depend on. 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 take on.
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, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd. has represented countless ironworkers over the years. Rebar injury cases handled by our lawyers number in the hundreds, and perhaps in the thousands. Some of our ironworker clients suffered injuries in fall accidents during the erection of buildings. Lacking fall protection, some lost their lives, and we helped surviving family members obtain compensation. Others were impaled or struck by rebar swung by cranes. Some suffered catastrophic injuries, such as brain injury or spinal cord injury, while others suffered from serious broken bone injuries and could no longer work as before.
Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd. is a valuable resource for injured ironworkers. We handle both Workers’ Compensation claims and third-party liability personal injury claims. From our law offices in Chicago, ironworker accident attorneys fight for our clients’ right to compensation.
A founding attorney of our law firm, Nat P. Ozmon (now deceased), 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 used.
