Construction sites are hazardous for many reasons, and injuries on worksites are common. If you suffered harm in a construction accident in Oak Lawn, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation for your troubles. Our team of lawyers can help you build a case and advocate for your rights as you navigate the legal system.
Going After Financial Compensation for Your Losses
Seeking financial compensation for your losses in a construction accident can be bothersome and complex. Construction companies often have detailed policies and insurance programs in place, both of which can make it that much harder to stand up for yourself as a victim.
This is where our team can step in to pursue any funds that may be owed to you for your injuries, pain, and suffering. You may qualify to collect compensation for damages such as:
- Time away from work
- Present and future medical expenses
- Emergency medical intervention services
- Rehabilitation programs
- Physical therapy and similar therapeutic interventions
- Assistive medical devices
- Pain and suffering
- Damage to personal property
When we review your case, we will calculate both your current and future losses. This helps us ensure you do not accept a settlement that will leave you footing the bill for ongoing medical care down the road.

Our lawyers will assist you by constructing a case that advocates for your rights as a victim. As part of this effort, our team will compile various pieces of evidence to analyze the cause of the accident that led to your pain and suffering. Common pieces of evidence we collect include:

How the Illinois Personal Injury Statute of Limitations May Impact You
