Libertyville Construction Accident Lawyer
Construction sites are some of the most dangerous places to work. Consequently, construction accidents are far from rare. If you have been injured in a construction accident, you may have a personal injury case against any and all responsible parties. Attorney Bogdan Martinovich has been a personal injury lawyer in Illinois for over 35 years. He is both knowledgeable about and experienced at handling a wide variety of construction accident cases.
Construction Accidents & Workers’ Compensation
If you are an employee of the general contractor of the construction site or the construction company and you are injured while working, you will likely be restricted to a workers’ compensation claim. Law limits the recovery in workers’ compensation cases, and you are not permitted to sue your employer for additional damages. If, however, a third-party shares liability for your accident, you may still have a personal injury case. For example, if your injury is caused by the negligence of a subcontractor, you may have both a workers’ compensation claim against your employer and a personal injury claim against the subcontractor at fault.
Compensation for your injuries
Because a number of parties may be liable for your injuries in a construction accident, it is crucially important that you hire an experienced lawyer to represent you. A less experienced attorney may overlook some avenues of recovery and fail to get you the maximum compensation you deserve. Additionally, effectively managing multiple claims and multiple defendants on a single case requires the skills of a seasoned attorney.
