See why so many injured workers turn to our construction accident lawyers after they've been injured on a job site in Chicago, IL. 

Your Legal Options  If You Are Involved in a Construction Accident 

Our team is led by Anthony R. Elman and Frederick J. Joseph III, both of whom have earned high recognition from the attorney evaluator Super Lawyers®. When our Chicago construction accident lawyers take on a construction worker's case, we follow one of two paths:
Claim for Workers' Compensation

File a Claim for Workers' Compensation

Employers in Illinois are required to carry workers' compensation insurance to cover employees' work-related injuries. A workers' compensation claim can be pursued to recover lost wages, medical bills, and more for your injury case. This path must be taken if your employer does carry workers' compensation insurance. 

While a workers' compensation claim may appear straightforward, some employers fight legitimate claims. Our Chicago construction accident attorneys can vigorously represent you throughout your claim so that you receive the compensation benefits you are rightfully owed for your construction injuries. 


File a Lawsuit for Personal Injury

If your injury was caused by a contractor or someone outside of your construction company, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. Unsafe work protocols, outdated equipment, and dangerous working environments can all lead to a construction site accident. 

It can be difficult to prove on your own that your injury at a construction site was the direct cause of negligence from someone outside of your company. Our distinguished attorneys have handled over 10,000 lawsuits, honing our abilities to prove even highly complex cases beyond a reasonable doubt.

What if My Employer Does Not Have Workers' Compensation?

If you are injured in a construction accident and your employer does not have workers' compensation insurance, you are entitled to sue your employer in civil court. Our attorneys at the Elman Joseph Samples Law Group can work diligently to hold your uninsured employer accountable for compensating you for your injuries. 

Act Before It's Too Late 

In Illinois, you have three years from the date of your construction accident to file a workers' compensation claim. The deadline for a personal injury lawsuit is two years from the day you were hurt. Calling or writing to the Elman Joseph Samples Law Group as soon as possible gives our attorneys more time to build your construction accident case and allows us to obtain critical evidence while it is still fresh.

The first 2 lawyers I went through told me they couldn’t do anything because of the complexity and nature of my accident. Robert and his team have been ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. He worked on my case immediately and told my what my options were and what the team can try. To say I’m satisfied with the result is an understatement.
