Lawyers for Burn Injuries on a Construction Site in DuPage County, IL

If you are like most people, you probably never give a single thought to your dependence on electricity—until the power goes out, of course.

Electricity-related accidents can result in severe burns, nerve damage, and in the most extreme cases, even death.

Helping Injured Workers in Addison and Wood Dale

A significant number of electrical injuries, including serious burns, occur on construction sites each year. Buried cables, exposed wires, standing water, and overhead lines pose serious dangers to anyone working on such a site. There are, however, certain types of workers who are especially at risk for an electricity-related accident on a construction site. These include:

  • Excavators
  • Roofers
  • Electricians
  • Crane operators

Perhaps the most frightening aspect of an electricity-related accident is how suddenly they can occur. For example, an excavator could be performing his or her job as usual, and suddenly, the equipment hits an underground electrical cable that nobody even knew was there. In such a case, the worker could suffer serious injuries before he or she is aware that something is wrong.

Regardless of how your injuries occurred, the attorneys at Kaiser Hafezi Law will work hard to get you the compensation you need to start moving forward with your life. If you are eligible, we will help you file your claim with the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission. If you do not qualify for workers' compensation, or if another person or entity was responsible for causing your accident, we will explore the possibility of a third-party claim for the damages.

Cook County Burn Injury Lawyers

While many construction-related burn injuries are caused by electrical accidents, there are many other ways to suffer burns on a worksite. It is not uncommon, for example, to find caustic and hazardous chemicals on a construction site. Such chemicals are very dangerous and could cause severe burns if they contact the skin. Similarly, there is also a danger of fires and explosions on most construction sites.

Regardless of how it is caused, a serious burn can cause a series of long-lasting problems for the victim. Depending on the nature and severity of the burn, a victim may suffer extreme pain, permanent nerve damage, deformity, and scarring. Burns can also lead to temporary or permanent disability.

At Kaiser Hafezi Law, we understand the complex challenges that can arise in burn injury cases, and we are prepared to help you overcome them. We will work closely with your medical team so that we can gain a full understanding of your injuries and how they are affecting your life. Our lawyers will also review the details of your accident to determine which party or parties should be responsible for covering your losses. From there, we will do everything possible to get you the full compensation to which the law says you are entitled.
