Elmhurst Workers Compensation AttorneysConstruction workers have some of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Whether it involves working atop high scaffolds, in deep trenches, or on worksites containing toxic chemicals, construction workers are often exposed to dangers. If you or a loved one were injured while working on a construction site, you may be seeking information about your legal options. Construction site accidents can lead to painful, debilitating injuries that result in overwhelming medical expenses. Fortunately, there may be a way for you to recover financial compensation after a construction site injury.

Workers’ Compensation Claims for Construction Workers

Illinois law requires employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This insurance is used to reimburse injured workers for medical bills and part of their lost income. A worker who is completely unable to work while recovering from a construction accident may receive temporary total disability benefits equal to two-thirds of his or her weekly wages. If an injured worker can return to work on a limited basis, he or she may receive temporary partial disability benefits equal to two-thirds of the difference between his or her pre-accident and post-accident wages. Workers with injuries that result in permanent loss of function may receive permanent partial disability benefits for several years or more.   

Workers’ compensation claims are “no-fault” meaning that, in most cases, an employee is entitled to benefits regardless of who was at fault for the injury.



American cities are of course diverse and varied, with each commanding attributes that set them apart from all other urban environments.

Chicago is arguably unique in that regard.
