If you suffer a factory or construction injury, Capron & Avgerinos can help you.
Factories and construction sites can be dangerous places to work. Construction workers often work at great heights and on uneven surfaces—roofs, scaffolding, and steep slopes – and falls can result in serious injuries to the back, neck, and head. Factory accidents can result in injuries ranging from burns to loss of appendages.
We Have Proven Expertise in Factory and Construction Injuries
Factory and construction workers are protected by workers’ compensation law. Still, if you have been injured on a construction site or factory floor, you should turn to the attorneys at Capron & Avgerinos, who have knowledge of construction and factory conditions. For decades, Capron & Avgerinos has brought justice to workers who have suffered factory and construction injuries in Illinois and Iowa.
We have helped Illinois and Iowa workers who have sustained head injuries, back injuries, fractures, and other types of serious physical damage. We have represented factory workers from a wide range of jobs, including welders, mechanics, machinists, forklift operators, pressmen, and sheet metal workers.
Filing a workers’ compensation claim for an industrial accident can be complex and may involve issues of site location, company ownership, involvement of other parties, and job responsibility. It is crucial that you contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. A site investigation, photographs, and interviews with co-workers may be necessary to validate your claim.
You have the right to consult an attorney before being interviewed by the workers’ compensation insurance company or its representatives. Do not sign any forms releasing your employer from liability. Your attorney will tell you how to proceed. Depending upon the details of your case, you may be entitled to:
- Full medical expenses
- Temporary disability
- Permanent disability
- Vocational and physical rehabilitation
- Compensation for loss of earning capacity
Additionally, your factory accident might qualify for a personal injury lawsuit, if you suspect that the fault also lies with a third party other than your employer.
We have helped Illinois and Iowa workers who have sustained head injuries, back injuries, fractures, and other types of serious physical damage. Examples of our clients include a construction worker who received $360,000, plus lifetime medical benefits for a lower back injury; and a carpenter, who after falling from scaffolding and severely injuring his hand, was awarded medical and lifetime weekly wage differential benefits, because he was forced to retrain for another profession.
The benefits you receive will depend upon the severity of your injury, your age, your income, and other circumstances surrounding your accident. In addition, workers’ compensation law is administered on a state-by-state basis, and the procedures for accidents that occur in Illinois and Iowa are different.
You should also know that even if you work for a company based outside of Illinois or Iowa, but your construction injury occurs in Illinois or Iowa, Capron & Avgerinos can handle your case.
Depending upon the specifics of your construction accident, Capron & Avgerinos may be able to file a personal injury claim beyond your claim for workers’ compensation–if you suspect that your injury involves a third party. It is possible to file suit against site subcontractors, suppliers of faulty equipment (such as scaffolding), or other parties who contributed to your accident.
Our personal injury attorneys can help make a difference in the outcome of your case.
