Workers’ Compensation May Be Inadequate
A construction worker injured on the job needs the best representation by a knowledgeable Chicago construction accident attorney to collect ample compensation for damages. The inadequate workers’ compensation system does not offer you sufficient coverage. A civil case synchronized with the workers’ compensation award will offer the best opportunity for you and your family.
If you or a family member has been injured or killed in a construction site or workplace accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation that is not covered by ordinary workers’ compensation. Such reimbursement could help pay for medical bills, lost wages, and your pain and suffering. If you have suffered a construction-related injury, you need the construction accident attorneys from the Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C.
