Employees Deserve A Safe Workplace

Were you or a family member injured at work? You can apply for workers’ compensation for all on-the-job injuries. If the injury involved someone other than the employer – for example, the manufacturer of a piece of machinery – you may be entitled to additional damages for the accident that go beyond workers’ compensation.

At Wise Law Offices LLC, we have taken numerous actions against Illinois workplaces, businesses, construction sites and other responsible parties when an untimely injury or death was caused by negligence, product failure or a similar catastrophic event. You can rely on our experience as negotiators and trial attorneys in personal injury and wrongful death suits. We are prepared to fight for you.

Workplace injuries can happen to anyone in any business setting and the number of workplace injuries can be staggering. A recent study shows that nearly 1 million U.S. workers each year experience an injury that causes them to miss a day or more on the job, and workplace injuries are the sixth leading cause of disability claims. In Illinois alone, the same study says there were 26,500 workplace injuries that required job transfer or restrictions and nearly 111,000 disability claims filed.

Construction Accidents Can Cause Catastrophic Or Fatal Injuries

Construction sites present many hazards to workers and bystanders. In one recent year, there were nearly 775 fatalities at construction sites and more than one-third of them involved fatal falls. There simply are not enough safety regulators to identify and prevent hazards from falls off ladders, scaffolds and roofs.

When fatalities or serious injuries happen at construction work sites, Wise Law Offices LLC‘s lawyers have the experience to determine when to file a claim and how to get the best results possible under the circumstances. Our firm has been helping injured Illinois workers for more than a decade. We thoroughly understand the regulations, statutes, ordinances and industry standards that mandate a safe working environment for construction workers and others at construction sites.

If unsafe working conditions or defective equipment and machinery combined with human error to cause injuries or death, you need a knowledgeable attorney on your side. We know how to investigate, pursue and litigate these claims successfully. For a free consultation, please contact us online or call us in Chicago at 312-580-2040 today.
