Barrington Construction Accident Lawyer

Attorney for Burn and Chemical Injuries Serving Cook, McHenry, Kane and Lake Counties

Construction workers can suffer devastating burn injuries due to electrical shock, chemical exposure, explosions, contact with hot equipment or other accidents. If you or someone in your family suffered a burn injury on the job, workers' compensation alone will not be enough to repay you for everything you have lost.

The law firm of Joseph M. Lucas & Associates, LLC in Barrington, Illinois, has extensive experience representing construction workers who suffer serious work-related injuries. No matter how you were injured, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and explain your options.

Do You Have a Personal Injury Case?

Workers' compensation provides medical care and lost wage benefits for people who are injured on the job in Illinois, regardless of who was at fault. However, workers' compensation does not cover all of your losses. For example, workers' compensation does not pay anything for pain and suffering, which may be the largest part of a personal injury case involving a severe burn.

If your injury was caused by someone else's negligence, you may have a personal injury claim in addition to a workers' compensation case. While employers are generally protected from being sued by employees for injuries on the job, there are exceptions in cases of extreme negligence. In addition, third parties can be sued for injuries occurring on the job. Here are examples of third parties:

  • The manufacturer of equipment with a defective heat shield or warnings
  • A natural gas supplier or a contractor working on a gas line, in the case of an explosion
  • The supplier of unsafe chemicals that cause a burn injury
  • Electricians and other contractors who create unsafe conditions leading to a burn injury
  • Property owners who create unsafe conditions

Our personal injury lawyers have spent over three decades pursuing compensation for construction workers and other accident victims. We will seek the maximum compensation you are due from all sources.
