Aggressive Advocacy for Construction Accidents
Many construction sites are accidents just waiting to happen. Each day,
dozens or even hundreds of workers enter into these dangerous environments
filled with heavy equipment, power tools, scaffolding, ladders, holes
in the ground, and piles of raw materials. When you factor in the tight
schedules and restricted budgets of many construction projects, the potential
for injury escalates.
Construction accident cases often involve both a workers' compensation
claim involving an employer and a third-party claim against the general
contractor and / or property owner. While each of these types of cases
can be complicated on their own, in construction site accidents, they
become intertwined and highly complex.
Injuries that occur on a job site may leave you unable to work and create
a mountain of medical bills. Unfortunately, many construction accidents result in
catastrophic injuries. By definition, these injuries are severe, life-altering, and require
long-term medical care. Sadly, some of these accidents may cause the
wrongful death of their victims, emotionally and financially devastating the families
they leave behind.
Hold parties liable for the damages they caused, including:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages, including future earnings
- Physical, emotional, and mental pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium

Owners and general contractors are required to keep construction sites
in a safe condition for workers! When they breach their legal responsibility,
you have a right to pursue legal action. In Illinois, there is a limited
time frame to file a personal injury or workers' compensation claim.
If you were injured on a construction site or lost a family member in
a construction accident,
contact our experienced personal injury attorneys at Drake & Collopy, P.C. right away to ensure that the proper steps are taken to investigate the
cause of the accident and to preserve any and all relevant evidence.
We understand the financial hardship often encountered with a significant
injury and would never want finances to prevent you from acquiring your
fair and just settlement. Our team of compassionate lawyers works on a
contingency basis; you will not receive a bill for attorneys' fee unless we garner compensation.
