A Construction Accident Lawyer Can Recover Just Restitution

Working at a construction site can be inherently dangerous, as workers are at a higher risk for on-the-job accidents. Any number of hazards can cause potentially serious injuries, which can severely limit the quality of life for you and your family. When third-party negligence or disregard for safety leads to your injury, a proven construction accident lawyer at the Chicago, IL, law firm of Rubin & Machado can handle your case and help you seek deserved restitution.

On-site Injuries & Their Effects

In the course of their daily tasks, construction workers often work with heavy-duty tools and equipment, deal with hazardous substances, or work at high elevations. Accidents can include scaffolding accidents, ladder falls, electrocution, falling debris or materials, getting caught in machinery, and fires and explosions. These incidents can be caused by negligence, defective machinery and tools, or a range of other circumstances. Severe injury, disability, and loss of life are unfortunate realities of this industry, and the injured party and their families are often left to cope with its consequences. 

Should I Seek Legal Counsel After a Construction Accident?

Many laws exist in our country to protect construction workers. Employers are required to conduct regular inspections of the work sites and equipment, provide employees with protective gear, train workers in the use of potentially dangerous machinery, and more. A lapse in any of these responsibilities can significantly increase the risk-level of working at a construction site. Most employers provide workers' compensation after a construction accident, but it may not cover the full extent of damages a worker suffers, such as restitution for pain and suffering.

Serious injuries may also require extensive therapy, home modifications, and other life alterations that can be prohibitively expensive. If you or a loved one has suffered a construction accident, it is essential to seek expert legal counsel and determine if your case warrants a personal injury lawsuit. With a strong record of high verdicts and settlements, the attorneys at Rubin & Machado fight for the rights of accident victims, and help clients get back to living their lives. 

Third-party Liability and Compensation

General contractors, including all subcontractors, are legally responsible for providing safety provisions at a construction site. Similarly, manufacturers of construction equipment are responsible for designing and maintaining safe products. Our dedicated attorneys can pursue your case against the responsible negligent party, be it the employer, supervisor, or product manufacturer.

With a strong record of substantial verdicts and settlements, the attorneys at Rubin & Machado fight for the rights of accident victims, and help clients get back to living their lives.

  • Present and future lost wages 
  • Lost or reduced earning potential
  • Pain and suffering, both physical and emotional
  • Physical therapy and estimated future health-related expenses
