CONSTRUCTION INJURIES IN CHICAGO
One unique element for those who often work at various job sites – construction workers, farmers and loggers, for example – is that in addition to being able to file a workers’ compensation claim, they may also be eligible to file a civil suit against the owners of the property under the Illinois’ Premises Liability Act, which makes property owners responsible for accidents that occur on the property, especially so if there is no warning of hazardous conditions.
If you were struck by an object and injured at work, you may be entitled to file an Illinois Workers’ Compensation claim. To find out more information consult an experienced workers comp lawyer who can guide you through the process.

WHAT TO DO AFTER A WORKPLACE INJURY
Did you recently suffer an injury at work in Chicago? Here are some guidelines you can follow to boost your workers compensation claim.
Immediately seek medical attention and inform your employer after the injury or if a repetitive injury begins to impact physical activity.
Contact an attorney to guide you through the legalities of your case, so you know what paperwork you’ll need along with other evidence to successfully prove your case.
Do everything your physician or specialist suggests in an effort to achieve a full recovery. Failing to do so could make an employee ineligible for benefits.
Make sure your health care providers know your injury is a work-related injury, so bills are sent to your employer.
TYPES OF CONSTRUCTION INJURIES
Potential construction injuries include:
Sprains, strains, and tears. Potential injuries in a fall could include a sprained or broken ankle, pulled muscles, torn ligaments or head or neck injuries such as whiplash, which occurs when the muscles of the neck are stretched.
Head injuries. A fall at work can cause a person to hit his or her head on a solid object such as a piece of furniture or the floor, potentially resulting in brain injury including lifelong damage.
Knee and leg injuries. A fall can lead to a broken kneecap or leg, torn ligaments, nerve damage or shattered bones.
Back injuries. Falling can lead to chronic back pain, paralysis or something in between if the landing results in fractured or broken vertebrae, herniated discs or some other serious injury.
Damage to internal organs. Falls can lead to kidney or lung damage.

Working with David was a pleasure. From the first time I spoke to him I felt at ease with him as he seemed more concerned with my well-being before all. He was always keeping me updated on everything every step through the process and was always available for me if I had a question. David delivered more than expected for me in every way and I would recommend him to anyone. A real class act with your best interest at heart!

I couldn’t have asked for a better injury lawyer. David Schwaner was wonderful to work with. He’s straightforward and gets the job done, all the while being most compassionate. I wish I could choose 6s. I’d recommend Schwaner Injury Law above all.

If you want a lawyer with compassion, a conscience, and a strong base of knowledge and experience, David’s your guy. I found myself seriously injured while traveling alone. He treated me with respect, patience, and genuine honesty even when I couldn’t really advocate for myself or think straight due to medications (this is where his patience came in). While it turned out that there wasn’t much any attorney could have done for me, he certainly exhausted every option, and I have no doubt he would have fought well for me had a trial occurred. The only drawback to having hired Mr. Schwaner is that I can no longer tell all those awful lawyer jokes. He ruined them all for me. But that’s a price I’m happy to have paid.

I was recommended to Schwaner by another yelper. I Visited this office recently, located in the garner building. They are time efficient people here, things are organized and done when they give you their word to be. After my meeting I must say that the staff is very helpful and David is extremely supportive of his clients. He was ready to answer all questions and commit to necessary steps to help solve the situation immediately. He is one of the best out here!

I am truely grateful to David who dealt with the insurance companies on our behalf. We had our own injury to handle and luckily we were able to come in contact with David. He gave us assurance that he would take care of everything. He was very adamant on keeping us informed of the status of the case throughout the process. I hope that I never have to deal with a situation like this again in the future, but if I do I know I can trust David to relieve our worries and be there for us.
