Work-related accidents can lead to complicated litigations. According to Illinois law, worker's safety has to be maintained by the employer. Any worker or employee who meets with an accident during the course of employment is entitled for workers' compensation under the law. However such litigations can become tedious. The attorneys at Kent M. Lucaccioni, Ltd. have over a century of combined experience in the field to help out their clients in these complicated situations.
Workplace accidents are all too common in Illinois. While many of these accidents won't be serious, some will be fatal. Construction negligence is particularly likely to lead to fatal workplace injuries and accidents. The loss of a loved one is never easy, but when a sudden work-related accident takes people from their families, the loss can be even harder to bear. In 2013, more than 4,000 U.S. workers were killed on the job.
