Seeking Compensation After a Construction Accident in Hoffman Estates?

If you’ve been injured in a construction accident in Hoffman Estates, Blumenshine Law Group is here to help you navigate the legal complexities and secure the compensation you deserve. Our experienced construction accident lawyers understand your challenges and are committed to providing you with the best possible legal representation.

Understanding Your Options

Workers’ Compensation Claims

A workers’ compensation claim may be your best option if you’ve suffered an injury while on the job. This system provides “no-fault” benefits to employees injured on the job, regardless of fault. While it may seem like benefits are guaranteed, insurance companies often try to deny claims, emphasizing the importance of meeting strict deadlines. Blumenshine Law Group can work with you to ensure your claim is filed on time.

Workers’ compensation benefits can cover medical bills and replace some lost wages, although certain forms of compensation like pain and suffering may not be available through this route.

Third-Party Lawsuits

While workers’ compensation may limit your ability to sue your employer, there are situations where a construction accident can lead to a lawsuit. For instance, accidents caused by third parties independent of the worksite can result in legal action. A personal injury lawsuit can provide compensation beyond what’s available through workers’ compensation, including pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and emotional distress.

How We Can Assist You

At Blumenshine Law Group, we have a dedicated team of attorneys who can guide you through the entire process of pursuing fair compensation after a construction accident. Our approach involves a comprehensive evaluation of your case, including reviewing police reports, contacting witnesses, and compiling medical records to determine the potential value of your case.

Once the initial investigation is complete, we’ll provide expert advice on your legal options, whether it’s filing an injury lawsuit or a workers’ compensation claim. We will negotiate with insurance companies to secure fair compensation, and if necessary, we’ll litigate your lawsuit or appeal a denied workers’ compensation claim.

Common Types of Construction Accidents

Construction accidents come in various forms, each with its consequences. Blumenshine Law Group is equipped to help you pursue compensation in all circumstances. Some common examples of construction accidents include:

  • Falls: Falling from scaffolding or other elevated structures is a prevalent type of construction site accident
  • Falling objects: Being struck by falling objects is another common occurrence.
  • Caught-between accidents: These accidents involve a person becoming trapped between two heavy or fixed structures.
  • Electrocution: Given the presence of exposed wiring, electrocution injuries are common.
  • Vehicle accidents: Collisions with cars, trucks, and other vehicles can occur on construction sites.
  • Fires: Construction sites are susceptible to fires, from exposed wiring to gas leaks.
