Construction Workers’ Compensation
Attorneys in Chicago
Construction workers are among the types of workers who are the most likely to experience workplace injuries, as construction sites present many different hazards. Because of these hazards and subsequent injuries, construction workers file hundreds of thousands of workers’ comp claims annually.
If you’re a construction worker who has been injured on the job in or around Chicago, you may be entitled to compensation through workers’ compensation with the help of a workers’ comp lawyer, but it’s important to understand what qualifies as a workplace injury and how to file a claim.
Construction Worker Injury Types
There are many types of construction worker injuries that can warrant a workers’ compensation claim, but there are certain injuries that are more common than others, including:
- Shoulder injuries such as torn rotator cuffs
- Sprains and strains
- Back injuries such as herniated discs
- Fractures and broken bones
- Knee injuries like menisci and torn ligaments
These injuries can qualify for workers’ comp cases in many instances, along with other minor to critical injuries.
Filing a Third Party Claim with a Construction Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Chicago
While construction workers are unable to sue employers for injuries sustained in the workplace in accordance with Illinois law, workers who are injured may file a personal injury claim against others who are partly responsible for the injury. If an employee is injured in the workplace, he or she can file a third party cause of action to recover compensation from any third parties responsible for the accident, along with a workers’ compensation claim.
