Vehicle collisions at work sites take important skills to solve

Previous posts on this blog have discussed tragedies in which a construction worker or other workers in the Chicago area get seriously hurt or even die because of a motor vehicle accident in or around a construction zone. Many times, these accidents involve an inattentive motorist hitting a worker who is simply doing their job close to the road. These types of construction accidents are relatively common and are among the most common causes of work-related deaths at construction sites.

These cases are complicated in part because a worker may have to pursue compensation from more than one source in order to cover all of their losses. For instance, the worker, or, in the case of a fatality, the worker's family, will no doubt want to request workers' compensation benefits. This is a good start, especially when it comes to medical bills and lost wages, but it may not cover everything.

The worker or their family will, therefore, want to consider filing a personal injury or wrongful death case against the negligent motorist who caused the accident. This, of course, raises a whole new set of legal complications and questions, and it will mean dealing with another insurance company, which may have its own way of dealing with things.

Because of these issues, construction workers and their families will often trust the skill and experience of our law firm to handle all components of a construction accident claim. Whether it is filing for workers' compensation or pursuing an action against a negligent motorist or other responsible party in connection with construction negligence, our office works hard to make sure workers and their families get the compensation they need and deserve.
