There are special laws in place to protect the health and safety of construction workers. If you or someone you love has been injured at a construction site, it is important that you understand your rights to any benefits and compensation that may be owed under the law. In some circumstances, depending upon how and where the accident occurred, you may even be able to make claims against parties other than your employer.
Injuries suffered at construction sites can be severe and life-altering. You may have suffered a herniated or bulging disc in your neck or back, a brain injury, burns to your head, neck or extremities, have nerve damage or spinal chord paralysis, broken or dislocated a bone or limb, or even have lost the use of a limb. At Mesirow & Stravitz, we understand that your immediate goals after going through such trauma are to get the appropriate medical care and make sure it is paid for, to make sure you do not suffer financially through any lost wages, to make sure that your insurance company will pay for future treatment relating to your accident injuries, and to make sure that you will receive money for your past and future pain and suffering and other human losses. Our experienced attorneys will discuss your situation in detail, and go over the various options available to you. We will work with insurance companies and other parties involved in your case to make sure that all your needs are handled quickly and appropriately. If the insurance company is unwilling to offer a favorable settlement, we will take the fight to the appropriate court.
