Chicago Back Injury Attorneys

Construction work can put a great deal of stress on the spine. With the right safety standards, lifting or pushing heavy objects can help to get a job done. All too often, however, these and other construction duties can result in serious back injuries, which can result in sky-high medical bills. Worse still, they can leave workers temporarily or permanently disabled. In the construction industry, this can make it impossible to return to work, resulting in lost income.

If you experienced a back injury while working on a construction site, Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC can help. Our Chicago back injury attorneys will carefully consider your case to determine the best course of action, and either assist you with a workers’ compensation insurance claim or with a lawsuit to fight for the compensation you need.

Causes of Back Injuries on Construction Sites

Construction is a physically demanding line of work. While any construction job is likely to put some strain on your body, some duties can be particularly taxing on your back. Here are a few of the hazards in construction work that commonly result in back injuries:

  • Heavy lifting
  • Carrying heavy materials
  • Pushing or pulling heavy equipment
  • Twisting the back while lifting
  • Working in awkward postures
  • Bending over frequently
  • Working on a surface below waist level

If your construction job required you to do any of these or other hazardous practices, you may be entitled to compensation for any resulting back injuries. You can file a claim through your employer’s worker’s compensation insurance, or, in some cases, you may even be able to file a lawsuit against your employer. An experienced back injury attorney from Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC can help you determine which course of action is appropriate for your case.

084_DWP6380To Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC Please accept my sincere appreciation for the services your agency provided to me and my family on the Jessie Palmer wrongful death cases. There were so many issues that needed to be resolved, and with your assistance we were able to finally get the diagnosis report printed. My stepdaughters asked me to thank you as well for the settlements they received from their father’s estate. We humbly appreciate the wonderful job your firm did with our case. In the future we will refer family and friends to your agency.

Thank you so much for your diligent, professional, and thorough handling of my car accident settlement. You were beyond helpful, accommodating, and supportive during the process. You patiently explained, in detail, the procedures that would take place during the course of the claim. You continually updated me as progress was made and gave me in-depth details. Being that I was a novice to this type of practice, you advised me as to what was realistic, yet fair, as far as when, how, and monetarily the claim would be settled. When an offer was made, you advised me accordingly, and counter-offered for what you believed to be a reasonable and objective settlement. Beyond that, you also worked determinedly to reduce my medical claims and had great success. An attorney friend of mine went as far to say that you “hit a home run” when you negotiated my settlement. I want you to know how much your guidance and attentiveness to my claim meant to me. I will definitely recommend you and your firm should any of my acquaintances need legal advice in the future.

Dear J.B. ,
I wanted to thank you, for the job you did on my case. You were not only an excellent lawyer, you were a friend along the way as well. You always promptly called me, addressing my questions and concerns. As far as my settlement goes, I couldn’t have expected more then you got for me. Many lawyers “brag” , about the amount of settlements they get for their clients, on their T.V. commercials . You, got me more then these lawyers “brag” about. Thank you for getting me such a strong settlement, and being a friend as well, along the way. I’d be more then happy to talk to anyone who would like to know , what a fine attorney you are. Thank you for being there for me. Sincerely,

- J.F.

It was not only comforting to have skilled, knowledgeable and experienced attorneys and staff during one of the most difficult times of my life, but to be supported by people who had my best interest at heart and genuinely cared about me and my personal feelings made all the difference in the world.

I was involved in a car accident and was referred to this office. Nick Drury was the attorney who handled my case and he was nothing short of phenomenal. Personable, professional, took the time and answered my questions, accessible, very responsive via email. He also advised as to what would be in my best interest and negotiated very well on my behalf. What was an additional plus is he resolved my case promptly. Thank you Nick- I highly recommend him for anyone who is need of a personal injury attorney!
