Construction / Industrial Injuries

If you have been injured in a construction or industrial accident in Indiana or Illinois, the attorneys at Schafer and Schafer LLP can help you recover funds from the person or entity at fault.

In many cases, you may be eligible for more than just workers' compensation depending upon the cause of your injury. It is important that you contact our attorneys right away to ensure preservation of evidence and the ability to determine fault in your situation. With combined experience of over 100 years, the family owned law firm of Schafer and Schafer LLP has the knowledge to retrieve the funds you deserve.

Construction Site Injuries

A construction site is a dangerous place. People who work in the construction industry some days are literally taking their lives in their hands while at work. Every year there are hundreds of deaths, and thousands of injuries in construction related accidents. Statistically, Indiana's rate of injury for construction site related accidents is above the national average. Some of the most common construction related injuries include broken bones, burns, and lacerations. These types of injuries can be caused by:

Faulty equipment
Improper safety inspections
Safety violations 
Falling objects

It is an unfortunate fact that many injuries in a construction area are entirely preventable. If you have been injured through negligence of another person or entity in the construction industry, Schafer and Schafer LLP can help you recover funds for medical expenses, lost wages, and more. There are strict time limits involving this type of case, so contact our law firm today.

Industrial Injuries

Not only are people who work at industrial plants in danger because of problems or carelessness with products at the job, but people who live near industrial plants can also be injured by chemical explosions, toxic spills, fire, among other things that can go wrong in that type of scenario. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in an industrial accident, contact the attorneys at Schafer and Schafer LLP today so we can get started working on your case.

Your Legal Rights

If your injury was caused at a construction site or industrial site due to the negligence of another person or equipment, you have legal rights. You are entitled to collect monies for your injuries, medical bills, as well as lost wages and possible lost future wages. There is a time limit on this type of case, so call the attorneys at Shafer and Shafer today for a free consultation regarding your case. There is never a fee unless we collect on your behalf.
