Over 30 Years Protecting the Injured
Peoria Construction & Workplace Accident Attorney
Negligent Employers Are Responsible for Workers' Injuries
In a construction workplace, you face dangers every day. Construction workers often spend their days around heavy machinery, suspended from high places, and under a tremendous amount of physical stress. Sometimes, workplace injuries happen by accident. Other times, your employer fails to provide a safe construction site where you can do your job.
Regardless of your particular circumstance, you may have a claim if you believe your employer neglected to follow safety protocols, violated mandatory rest opportunities for workers, or performed other unsafe workplace practices.
Types of Workplace Accidents & Injuries
In any workplace, employees face certain risks. Whether you work on a construction site or in an office, you may be a victim of negligence if your injuries could have and should have been prevented. Typically, you may be able to file a workers’ compensation or workplace injury claim if you were harmed while performing any work-related duty, even if the accident did not occur at your physical place of work.
We represent work-related injuries for a variety of circumstances, including:
- Falls from scaffolding or other high places
- Hit by a falling object
- Injured by heavy machinery
- Failure to conduct proper safety training
- Car/commercial vehicle accidents (when driving for work)
- Repetitive motion injuries
Injuries we represent include broken bones, head injuries, spinal injuries, amputation, severe burns, loss of life, and other serious injuries. We handle each individual case with care, allowing you the space to heal as we process your claim for you.
Many workplace injuries, especially construction injuries, can be life-altering. If your injury happened because your employer failed to provide a safe place of work, we recommend you file a claim so you can pursue the just compensation you are owed and so the accident isn't repeated.
Representing Serious Personal Injury Claims for Work-Related Accidents
If you have been injured while on the job, make sure you receive the medical care you require. Especially in the case of a serious injury, delaying treatment simply because you're concerned about workplace ramifications can be very dangerous. Your supervisor is responsible for allowing you leave to care for yourself in the event of an injury.
