Construction sites are full of potential hazards for workers, pedestrians, and others. When you or a loved one is injured in a construction accident, you may be able to hold the project manager or overseeing company liable for your damages.
An Orland Park lawyer with The Kryder Law Group, LLC will help you decide on a course of action as we defend you and pursue potential compensation on your behalf after a construction accident.
How Costly are the Lawyers with The Kryder Law Group, LLC?
Our lawyers operate on a contingency fee for our clients who suffered injuries from a construction accident in Orland Park. This payment model means that rather than asking for fees at the start of your case, our team only gets paid once we receive a settlement or judgment for you.
With this approach, you will not have to worry about having to get a payment together when securing our assistance with your case.
The Pursuit of Monetary Awards
After suffering injuries in a construction accident, you generally have two options for recovering damages. The one that applies to you depends on who is liable for the accident.
You can file:
- A workers’ compensation claim, if your employer was responsible for the accident
- A third-party claim or lawsuit, if a managing partner, contractor, or other party was negligent
Both can cover economic damages, like past and future medical bills, lost wages and future lost earning potential, and death benefits should you have lost your loved one in the construction accident.
The latter legal route might allow you to request damages for your intangible losses, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of consortium. In any case, your lawyer can help you figure out who was responsible and decide which legal option is most suitable for you.
How Our Construction Accident Lawyers will Help
Our lawyers can help you out in a few key ways. First of all, our team will take your side as we investigate the details of the construction accident. In this process, you can expect updates as our attorneys gather evidence.
Evidence that can bolster your case might be:
- Cellphone records
- Maintenance records
- Medical records
- Incident reports
- Witness statements
- Video footage of the accident
- Photos of the scene
From here, our team will identify a liable party and examine relevant laws and collate relevant data to pursue any potential settlement payments that may be owed to you. Once we have assessed your damages, we will request that amount from the other party’s insurer. If they come back with an insufficient offer, we will negotiate until we find common ground.
Should that be unsuccessful, we will file a lawsuit and argue your case in trial.
We Have Recovered Millions of Dollars for Injury Victims
Our law firm is proud to present a large list of satisfied clients and positive case results. We are ready to help you with your accident case, just as we have helped similar clients in the past.
Our past client, Don P. from Chicago, said, “Andrew Kryder is an excellent lawyer who is not only well prepared and easy to work with but very effective in getting the results necessary for his clients. He always keeps the client informed and timely in all responses.”
We also have a list of strong case results to further support our claims. In one recent construction accident case, our team recovered a settlement of $3.2 million dollars for a construction worker who was injured when he fell. At the time of the settlement, this ranked as the highest award on record for a construction injury in McHenry County. As proven by outcomes like this one, our team has the experience to help you with your case.
Your Case and the Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in Illinois
According to information in the Illinois personal injury statute of limitations presented in 735 ILCS 5/13-202, when you are seeking justice after an accident, you have a general two-year window within which you are permitted to do so.
It is imperative for us to comply with this timeline. Otherwise, the court might refuse to hear your case, leaving you to pay for all your losses.
Our team will support you as we assess how state and local laws play into the overall picture of your case. We also understand that dealing with these kinds of involved legal processes may raise some questions for you and your loved ones. We are glad to answer your questions and address your uncertainties as we build a case that advocates for your rights as a victim.
Moving Forward After a Construction Accident
It is important to visit a doctor or medical professional after you are involved in a construction accident. Even if you believe you were not hurt in a significant way, speaking with a medical professional can help you to receive the diagnosis and care that you deserve. As Mayo Clinic states, some injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, may worsen over time if left untreated.
Once you have done your part to receive medical treatment for your injuries, our lawyers will be here waiting to help you. We can assist you in getting your case off the ground regardless of where you are on your journey. We are also prepared to address your concerns and answer your questions as you get back on your feet after a construction accident.
