Caring Advocacy After A Construction Accident

Last updated on June 3, 2020

Construction sites are full of danger, from the heavy machinery to industrial-strength chemicals to the dust in the air. Although companies are asked to take great pains to increase the safety of these sites, sometimes regulations slip through the cracks and people get hurt.

If you have been injured on a construction site or in a construction-related accident, the Drew Ferracuti Law Firm can help. Attorney Drew Ferracuti has helped thousands of individuals in almost every county in Northern Illinois and Central Illinois, including Cook County-Chicago get compensation for serious injuries.

Common Construction Site Accidents

The injuries associated with construction accidents can create lifelong medical problems for the victims. When safety protocols are not followed, construction workers and passersby can experience a wide range of accidents, including:

  • Falls from ladders and scaffolding
  • Crushing injuries due to unsecured materials
  • Collisions involving workplace vehicles
  • Chemical burns or rashes
  • Respiratory injuries from inhaled materials
  • Accidents caused by defective tools or products

Many of these injuries are associated with short- or long-term disability because of their severe nature. The resulting inability to return to work can complicate a difficult financial situation now posed by mounting medical bills. Our firm has seen firsthand how these issues affect individuals and their loved ones, and we are committed to fighting for fair compensation on your behalf.

An Ally For All

Construction workers are at higher risk for severe or fatal injuries in the workplace than many industries in Illinois. Employers and insurance companies that try to avoid paying out fair compensation for these workers must be held accountable. Attorney Ferracuti has fought in court against insurance providers and companies of all sizes to obtain the best possible outcome for thousands of clients. We can help you file your initial workers’ compensation claim and represent you in an appeal if the judgment does not match the impact the accident has had on your life.

Our firm understands that construction sites are busy places with many different individuals and companies often working on one project. If someone else’s negligence caused your accident, you may be able to bring a third-party personal injury lawsuit against them. Although you cannot bring a suit against your own employer under workers’ compensation laws, you can bring a suit against another party who causes your injury. You deserve aggressive representation in these matters, as well.

We are committed to providing exceptional personal injury representation throughout almost every county in Northern and Central Illinois, including Cook County- Chicago.
