Chicago Construction Injury Attorney
Getting Back on Your Feet After a Workplace Accident
Construction workers play a fundamental role in creating our city’s infrastructure and developing the basis for a prosperous community. Unfortunately, while these workers build the platform for others to succeed, too many are hurt on the job, and their injuries left neglected by the employers responsible for the unsafe environment that harmed them.
At McNabola & Associates, LLC, we work to express our gratitude for local construction workers by fighting for their due reparations and expenses for the injuries they endured because of a dangerous work environment. If you or a loved one sustained an injury during a construction accident, contact our lawyers. We will provide the resolute legal assistance necessary to fight for what you deserve.

Construction Accidents We Can Help With
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSHA) outlines duties and expectations for employers to provide their workers with a safe environment. These guidelines instruct companies to:
- Provide proper safety equipment
- Ensure proper use of scaffolding or guardrails
- Post appropriate warnings of hazardous materials and conditions
- Protect employees from dangerous or deadly hazards
- Comply with construction industry standards
Still, even with these rules in place, companies often fail to take the appropriate measures to create a reliable workspace. Of course, this leads to a variety of injuries. We commonly help clients who have suffered from the following onsite:
- Crane accidents
- Equipment malfunctions
- Falling objects
- Structural collapses
- Toxic exposures
However, the dangers of your worksite injured you, we can help you build a case around the incident and fight for proper recompense.
The Benefit of Filing a Lawsuit Rather than Applying for Workers’ Compensation
Your case could delve deeper than just a workplace issue. With the nature of construction work, you are surely working with multiple factors, including different equipment, jobsites, and more. Our construction accident lawyers will look at your case holistically to gather personal accounts, feedback, and evidence from every person involved, including your employer, the contractors, property owners, architects, and engineers. We will also handle communications with associated insurance companies. By identifying all the responsible parties, we maximize the opportunity to get reparations from those responsible.
By working with an attorney, you get personalized care. We will approach your case like it is our only and provide a level of one-on-one, personalized attention that you simply won’t get during the workers’ compensation process. While workers’ compensation cases are appreciated for their ease because you do not have to prove the company is at fault, you can only recover medical bills, vocational rehabilitation, lost wages, and impairment benefits. By filing a personal injury claim, you can recover all of these in addition to benefits for your pain and suffering.
You put everything into your work. Let us put the same hard work into retrieving everything you’re owed for the injury you sustained because of an accident-prone work site.
