A personal injury claim against at-fault companies and persons is a legal case against an at-fault party, such as the general contractor, another subcontractor, or the owner of the property where you were injured on the job.
To obtain financial recovery from at-fault parties other than your employer, we must prove that they did or did not do something that caused your injury, and that you are not more than 50% at fault.
We file these types of cases in the Circuit Courts. The cases are resolved by settlement or by trial before a Judge or jury.
When we establish that another party is at fault, you are entitled to:
- Your past and future medical bills
- Your past and future lost wages
- Payment for your pain and suffering
- Payment for your emotional distress
- Payment for your loss of a normal life
If your family member dies as a result of injuries suffered on the worksite and someone other than the employer is at fault, we open an Estate and appoint a family representative, to prosecute your loved one’s case. The Estate will be entitled to all of the compensation your family member was personally entitled to, and his or her heirs would be entitled to compensation for their grief and loss of society, monetary support, and companionship resulting from your loved one’s death, under the Illinois Wrongful Death Act.
When you recover file a lawsuit against the at-fault parties for your injuries, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier will be on your side, because it has a right of reimbursement for the benefits it paid to you under the Illinois Workers Compensation Act. Whether and how much reimbursement the insurance company receives affects your net recovery. That is why it is imperative to have experienced attorneys, like Adler & Adler, who know how to pursue and navigate these type of cases to help you obtain the maximum recovery.
