Springfield Construction Accident Attorney
According to U.S. Department of Labor statistics, construction is one of the ten most dangerous professions.

Why You Need an Attorney
Workers’ compensation laws often prohibit workers from suing their employers, making filing a claim for your injuries a more complicated situation. As construction sites involve different parties, from the landowner to the subcontractors to the equipment manufacturers, it will probably take an experienced construction accident lawyer to investigate the accident and determine cause and liability. Our firm has 40 years of experience handling construction accident cases and we are committed to exploring all options for collecting compensation.
Is there a Statute of Limitations on my Case?
Do not delay. Illinois has statutes, or state laws, governing the time allowed for filing specific types of lawsuits. These time limits are called “Statutes of Limitations.” If you miss the 2 year deadline for filing your case, you lose the right to do so. You are best protected by discussing your case with an attorney as soon as possible.
