Advocating For Construction Accident Victims
Whether you work in the construction industry or are merely passing by a construction site, you know that these work sites are among the most dangerous in the country. You may be careful when you are near these hazardous locations; however, accidents can happen. When property owners, contractors, tool manufacturers and other parties do not comply with safety regulations, their negligence can lead to serious injuries.
Located in Belleville, our personal injury attorneys at Cook, Bartholomew, Shevlin, Cook & Jones, LLP, regularly advocate for victims of construction site accidents in Illinois and Missouri. With over 150 years of combined legal experience, we are qualified to represent you in complicated claims. From your initial consultation until your case’s conclusion, we will provide the skilled, attentive counsel you desire.
Ready To Challenge At-Fault Individuals And Businesses
Business owners who operate in the construction industry know that most accidents on these work sites are expensive to settle. They and their insurers will take extreme measures to avoid paying out fair claims that cover medical bills, lost wages and other expenses.
Our lawyers are familiar with the tactics these parties use to limit the compensation injury victims receive. We are ready to challenge these at-fault parties utilizing accident reconstruction experts, medical professionals and other professionals to defend your claim.
We regularly handle a variety of construction injury cases related to:
- Third-person liability claims
- Injury claims related to defective items or dangerous construction equipment
- Premises liability claims related to known slip- and trip-and-fall hazards
- OSHA violations
- Work site injuries caused by improperly secured scaffolding or ladders
When you partner with our firm, we enlist a team of professionals that addresses the unique circumstances surrounding your accident. This collaborative approach is one reason we secure optimal results for our clients.
Our hands-on experience is another reason. Attorneys are intimately familiar with the risks present on construction sites, having been employed in the industry themselves. Three of our members hold honorary gold cards with Laborers’ International Union of North America.
