Will County Construction Accidents Attorneys

Joliet, IL Lawyers for Serious Injuries

Construction sites are among the most hazardous work environments there are. With so many potential dangers, accidents are a common occurrence. Injuries sustained in construction accidents can be severe and life changing. At the Law Offices of Tedone and Morton, P.C., we are experienced in handling personal injury claims resulting from construction accidents. As skilled investigators, our attorneys know how to identify responsible parties and aggressively pursue maximum compensation.

Construction Accidents and Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation laws prevent employees from suing their employers for on-the-job injuries. Instead, they must file a claim with their employer's workers' compensation insurance. That does not mean that workers injured in construction accidents cannot file personal injury claims, however. If a third party other than the worker's employer shares responsibility for the accident, that party can be sued. Often workers' compensation does not provide the necessary compensation to cover your medical expenses and lost wages following an accident. By pursuing all available avenues of compensation, you have a greater likelihood of obtaining the settlement or judgment you need and deserve.

There are many ways a person can be injured at a construction site. Our firm handles all types of construction accidents including those involving:

  • Scaffolding falls
  • Crane accidents
  • Elevator accidents
  • Unsafe or misused equipment
  • Trench accidents
  • Welding accidents
  • Traffic-related accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Building collapses
  • Wrongful death

If you or a loved on has been injured in a construction site accident, contact us to inquire about a free consultation to discuss your case. Our firm has offices in Plainfield and Joliet, and we handle cases throughout Will County, Grundy County, Kendall County, and beyond.
