Construction Accidents

When a person is injured or killed on a construction site, recovery is often through the Illinois Workers’ Compensation system.  Worker’s compensation will cover medical bills, lost wages and address the permanency of the injury.  However, there are often other parties responsible for the cause of the injury such as contractors, subcontractors, architects and tool manufacturers.  The negligence of a party other than the injured person’s employer may allow for additional recovery to compensate the victim and his or her family for injury or death due to the negligence of another.

For example, the attorneys at AHR secured a workers’ compensation settlement for a client injured when a stairway collapsed on a residential construction site and then aggressively pursued a lawsuit against the company that installed the stairs as well as the company that did work on the stairs and failed to properly re-secure the stairway in the home.  In the end, the victim was able to recover a fair and full recovery from the responsible parties.

Each and every case is unique and specific to the circumstances involved.  The lawyers at AHR are experienced in assisting victims and their families in recovering to the fullest extent of the law.  They regularly represent clients in both workers’ compensation and in personal injury claims related to construction negligence.  A comprehensive plan to secure an appropriate recovery is developed at the time the law firm is retained to represent the victim or his or her family.

All personal injury and workers’ compensation cases are handled on a contingent fee basis and consultations are free.  No money is owed by the client unless the attorneys at Ariano Hardy Ritt make a recovery for the client.  The attorneys at AHR are experienced trial attorneys ready to pursue a fair and full recovery for our clients.
