When you work construction or in an industrial environment, a work injury can sideline you for months. A permanent injury can force you to adapt to a different profession, and you could even be prevented from working entirely. Your income could decrease substantially and your family could suffer as a result.
At James D. Montgomery & Associates, Ltd., we are well-known in Illinois and surrounding states for taking on tough cases and recovering substantial injury awards for clients across industries. Our law firm has been a leading Chicago-area plaintiffs' injury firm for over 40 years, and we can aggressively pursue maximum injury compensation in your case for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, rehabilitation, long-term care and even wrongful death costs.
Pursuing Accident Injury Compensation
In some cases, workplace injury compensation is covered by workers' compensation insurance or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Our Chicago-based attorneys help you determine if your construction accident, factory accident or manufacturing accident injury is a personal injury claim or another type of claim. We will help you fully understand your legal options and counsel you on the best course of action.
If your injury was the result of negligence on the part of an entity other than your employer or a co-worker, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim on top of workers' compensation benefits or SSDI benefits.
In these cases, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to take full advantage of the legal options and benefits available to you. Our team will independently investigate your claim, collaborate with expert witnesses and establish the full and fair value of your case to pursue for your maximum recovery, including all past and future costs and damages.
We handle a wide range of injury situations resulting from many types of accidents, including:
- Failure of machines, tools or safety equipment
- Car, truck and other vehicle accidents
- Crane accidents
- Assembly line accidents
- Loading dock accidents
- Lifting accidents
- Warehouse accidents
- Falls from roofs, ladders and scaffolding
- Hit by falling object accidents
- Improper storage of tools, supplies and other materials
- Electrocution, fire and explosion accidents
- Excavation and demolition accidents
Do not assume that your injury claim is limited to workers' compensation or SSDI. You might have many more legal options, and you should consult a knowledgeable attorney at our firm to gain a full understanding of your rights and what may be available.
