While worker’s compensation claims should cover injuries you receive on construction sites, insurance companies will often work to try to prevent you from claiming the benefits you deserve. A Chicago construction injury lawyer may be able to help you navigate the complex process of obtaining compensation for construction injuries.
Worker’s Compensation Claims
Worker’s compensation should be an easy process because all you are legally required to prove is that you were hurt while working for your company. It does not matter whose fault the accident was, so even if your own carelessness was to blame, you should still be able to claim benefits. However, insurance companies can make the process more difficult and an experienced Chicago construction injury lawyer can help reduce the complexity of the insurance company’s arguments.
Wrongful Death Suits
If you have lost a loved one in a construction accident, you may be able to sue the construction company. If you engage in a civil suit against the company, you will often have to face accusations about your loved one that is untrue in order to save the company money. To combat these claims and get the money you deserve, you should seek an experienced injury attorney.
Third Party Civil Suit
There may be cases in which your company is not the only partly responsible for your injury. If a third-party vendor was responsible for a faulty product that caused your injury, you may be able to file a civil suit against them. The Shea Law Group are Chicago construction injury lawyers.
