Seeking a Full Financial Recovery for Injured Chicago Workers

If you or your loved one's life was put at risk from a work-related construction accident, you are entitled to secure workers' compensation benefits. This is a no-fault system designed to help injured workers and families with work-related fatal accident claims obtain compensation without proving fault. On the flip side, there are caps in the amount of benefits injured workers and families can secure from construction accidents such as:

  • Ladder and scaffolding accidents
  • Forklift accidents
  • Electrical accident
  • Defective construction equipment

At Hanaford Law, we have the skills and legal resources to determine the cause of construction accidents. We can consult OSHA experts and accident scene reconstructionists to help us identify liability factors. Often, contractors and subcontractors work closely together blurring the lines of employment. If a party outside of your employer such a subcontractor or property owner acted in a negligent manner, we can help you pursue compensation above and beyond workers' compensation. McHenry County construction accident attorney Robert H. Hanaford also has experience pursuing civil personal injury claims against manufacturers responsible for construction accidents related to faulty equipment.
