Competent Chicago Construction Accident Attorney Helping Families Get Compensation
Skilled lawyer helping you enforce safety standards
When a construction company has failed to take adequate precautions to prevent injury and you have suffered physical injuries and financial losses, you have the right to take legal action. State laws and building codes exist to protect you. At the law office of Douglas W. Graham, our attorneys can help you enforce safety standards no matter who is at fault — whether developer, subdeveloper, contractor, engineer, electrician, architect, plumber, crane driver, forklift operator or other related professional.
You may be entitled to compensation from the court
If you were injured on the job and the injury occurred as a result of your employment, you are entitled to benefits under workers compensation laws of Illinois. Claims for workers compensation are handled by attorneys who specialize in such claims and practice before the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission. However, if you were injured on the job as a result of careless, reckless or negligent conduct by someone other than your own employer or a co-employee, you may sue that third party for your injuries in the circuit court. Douglas W. Graham, a skilled personal injury lawyer in Chicago, has the experience and background to represent you in court if you are injured by one of these common types of construction accidents:

Getting you compensation for your injuries
Contractors and subcontractors have a responsibility to use materials that are up to code and to hire professionals who exercise due care in every aspect of the construction process. If they fail in this duty and are not compliant with safety standards, someone probably owes you money damages for the injuries you suffered — whether that is the person who manufactured a defective cable or the operator who failed to use it correctly. We will help you get compensation for your construction site injuries that are a result of someone else’s negligent or wrongful conduct in the following ways:
- Take your case on a contingency basis. Do not worry about spending money to begin your claim. We do not get paid until you receive a settlement or money judgment.
- Make sure your case is filed in a timely fashion. In Illinois, the law restricts the time you have to file your personal injury claim. We will make sure that your claim is filed on time so you don’t lose your rights.
- Work with experts. We have experience with construction accident cases and can work with accident experts to prove your injuries.
Our experienced accident attorneys will vigorously represent you in court so you can receive compensation for your injuries as a result of a construction accident.
