Chicago Vehicular Accident Attorneys

From bulldozers to pickup trucks, vehicles are an important part of any construction project. However, since motor vehicles are powerful pieces of machinery, it is important that construction companies set and follow protocols on operating them so that they do not injure any workers. All too often, construction companies and third party contractors are too lax about these protocols, resulting in vehicle accidents and serious injuries.

Construction companies that fail to take vehicle safety precautions put everyone at the worksite in danger. Vehicle accidents can result in serious injury or even death. If you or someone you love was hurt in a vehicle accident while working on a construction site, the Chicago vehicular accident attorneys of Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC can assist you with your worker’s compensation claim or help you file a lawsuit against a third-party contractor or, circumstances permitting, even against your employer.

Legal Options After a Construction Site Vehicular Accident

When a vehicle injures you, your body does not care who was driving it. However, because of workers’ compensation laws, the cause of the accident is very important in determining what legal options are available to you. Consider whether your accident was caused by any of the following:

  • Your employer’s negligence: In most cases where your accident occurred because the construction company you work for failed to maintain vehicle safety protocols, your only option is to file a workers’ compensation insurance claim. Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC can help you through this process, making sure that you file the claim as effectively as possible and submit all the relevant documentation, and fighting for you if your claim is denied.
  • A third-party contractor’s negligence: It is very common for construction companies to bring in third-party contractors. All too often, these contractors are unaware or unobservant of the company’s safety protocols. If a contractor caused your vehicular accident, you can sue them directly.
  • Any party’s intent: If any party caused your injury intentionally, it falls outside the realm of worker’s compensation insurance. Regardless of whether the party responsible is your employer or a third-party contractor, you can sue them for intentionally injuring you.

Regardless of the specifics, if another party caused you to be injured in a construction site vehicular accident, you have at least one option for seeking compensation. An experienced attorney can help determine what type of action is right for your case. Learn more about construction accident cases we handle.

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.
