Attorneys for Construction Workers Injured on the Job in Springfield, Champaign, Bloomington, and Decatur

Construction is one of the most dangerous professions in the United States, and workers face multiple different types of dangers while they are at a work site. When accidents take place, they can lead to catastrophic injuries or wrongful death, leaving victims and their families wondering how they will pay medical bills, cover their household expenses when they cannot earn an income, and address other issues related to the injury. Fortunately, by working with a skilled lawyer, families can determine their best legal options for receiving payments that will help them recover from a serious injury.

For over 40 years, Kanoski Bresney has been representing clients in cases involving personal injuries and workers' compensation, and we have recovered more than $400 million for injury victims. We are dedicated to helping those who have been injured receive financial compensation, and we will fight on your behalf to protect your rights while working to make sure you have the resources you need. We pledge to treat you and your family with respect, provide a fast and effective response to your needs, and help you achieve the results you deserve.

Compensation for Construction Accident Injuries

Accidents and injuries on construction sites can happen for a variety of reasons. In some cases, they may occur because of the negligence of an employer, such as the failure to provide the necessary protective equipment. Other parties may also be responsible, including subcontractors, property owners, or equipment manufacturers. Victims will want to work with an attorney who can help them understand how liability issues affect a case and when they will be eligible to make a workers' comp claim or pursue a personal injury lawsuit.

We can assist with all types of work-related injuries that affect construction workers, including cases involving:

  • Crane and equipment negligence - Working around heavy machinery can be dangerous, and if a person is struck by moving equipment or falling objects, or if a piece of equipment rolls over on top of a person, they are likely to suffer serious injuries. We can help determine whether an injury occurred due to operator error, inadequate training or protective measures, or defective equipment.
  • Highway workers - Road construction areas can be dangerous due to fast-moving traffic near workers and equipment. In addition to the hazards that are typically present in a construction site, workers may be injured in car accidents that occur because drivers do not obey traffic signs or reduced speed limits. In these cases, negligent drivers may be liable for a victim's injuries and damages.
  • Scaffold and ladder accidents - Workers can suffer serious fall injuries due to collapsing ladders or scaffolds, and these types of accidents may occur due to defects in equipment or vehicles or machinery striking a ladder or scaffold. Injuries can also be caused by falling objects dropped by people working above the ground.
  • Union workers - Members of labor unions are sometimes reluctant to file an injury claim since they do not want to lose their jobs or the benefits provided by a union. By working with an attorney, these victims can ensure that their rights will be protected, and in addition to receiving workers' compensation benefits or pursuing compensation through a personal injury lawsuit, they may also be eligible to receive union benefits that address injuries suffered by members.
