Construction accidents are complex and require experienced attorneys to investigate your claims. Our firm has protected construction workers injured on the job for more than thirty years. Recently, Gibson Steigauf secured the largest verdict or settlement in DuPage County totaling $6,900,000 for our carpenter client who fell from a roof due to a faulty guard rail. Our attorneys understand that after suffering traumatic injuries, your goals are to make sure your medical bills are paid, your wages/salary continues to be paid, and that you get the money compensation you are entitled to.
If you are injured while working as a tradesman or other service worker on a site you are entitled to Worker’s Compensation benefits – our team of lawyers includes specialists who only practice on behalf of injured workers before the Illinois industrial commission which is the court system for all Worker’s Compensation cases.
Many times a construction injury is caused by a company or person who is not your employer. Gibson Steigauf has extensive experience in investigating each case to find the companies or individuals who were at fault in causing your injuries. When the at fault party includes a company or individual who is not employed by your company our firm will pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim in the appropriate State or Federal Court system which is in addition to your Worker’s Compensation case. We work smoothly in full coordination with our Worker’s Compensation lawyers to most effectively represent you in both cases.
