Construction Accident Attorney in St. Clair County, Illinois
Looking at All Angles in the Effort to Recover Compensation You Deserve
Many on-the-job accident victims believe that workers’ compensation and health insurance benefits are their only resources for money to cover medical bills and other economic challenges created by their injuries. In fact, equipment manufacturers, contractors and others often have legal accountability to people hurt because of negligence that causes accidents such as:
- Falls from scaffolding, ladders, cranes and other construction equipment
- Injury-causing heavy equipment failures, often due to a fundamental design flaw, inadequate maintenance or inadequate operator training
- Auto and truck accidents on unsafe construction sites
We have the in-house medical knowledge and quality resources to properly gauge the full economic impact of serious long-term injuries or a wrongful death. Our experience extends to helping people who must cope with catastrophic crush injuries, brain and spinal cord injuries, back and neck injuries, burns, and other severe consequences.
We adeptly handle both premises liability and products liability claims, as well as other types of civil litigation. To work with an aggressive yet balanced personal injury firm you can count on for insight targeted at helping you recover, please contact us at Thomas Q. Keefe, Jr., P.C.
