Construction Site Accident Lawyer

Construction workers face some of the most dangerous work conditions. As a result, they have a high level of risk for workplace injury, both from sudden accidents and from the repetitive stress they experience from the job.

At Steele Law Offices, LLC, we offer comprehensive and quality representation to help injured workers recover their health and a sense of financial stability when a workplace accident has changed their lives. They typically come to us with overwhelming medical bills, the inability to work and a lack of answers from the employer and insurance company they are relying on for assistance.

By providing a strong understanding of their rights as an injured worker and the methods that insurance companies use to delay or undervalue workers' comp injury benefits, we lay the groundwork for maximum compensation recovery.

A Lawyer To Handle The Full Scope Of Problems Caused By Your Construction Injury

We handle a wide range of construction site accident claims throughout Illinois, including those that involve:

  • Car accidents and road construction workers
  • Equipment malfunction or negligence in equipment maintenance
  • Improper or inadequate job site training
  • Falls from ladders, scaffolding or unsecured structures
  • Electric shocks and burns
  • Broken or crushed bones
  • Lost digits or limbs
  • Back, neck or spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Impairments like deafness or blindness caused by exposure to harmful and pervasive stimulus
  • Wear and tear to joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons caused by repetitive motion or stress (i.e., continual vibrations from heavy machinery)
  • Occupational diseases caused by exposure to harmful substances (i.e., asbestos exposure and respiratory issues)

Many injuries incurred on a job site are hard to bounce back from; some injured workers may be unable to return to work at all because of permanent disabilities. You may be owed compensation for your immediate medical and financial needs as well as your long-term care and lost income from being unable to return to the job you were trained to do.

We pursue all avenues for compensation, including opportunities for vocational rehabilitation that prepares you to return to work in a limited capacity or seek opportunities in a new field.
