Skilled Construction Accident Injury Attorneys
Metro-East — St. Clair County — Madison County — Eastern Missouri — Southern and Southwestern Illinois
In Southwestern Illinois, many people work in the industrial sector, including steel mills and manufacturing plants. The ConocoPhillips refinery in Roxana, Illinois, about 15 miles northeast of St. Louis, is slated to create up to 1,600 new jobs over the next few years, as well as work for industrial and residential construction crews. The new Granite City heat recovery coke manufacturing plant has a 15-year contract to supply the U.S. Steel plant with coke and steam, with an estimated construction cost of $290 million.
Protecting Your Rights
Despite everyone's best efforts, construction accidents do happen. Scaffolding falls down. Molten steel explodes. Someone running a forklift runs into you. If you or a family member has been injured in a catastrophic construction accident, you are entitled to payments for medical bills and lost wages through Illinois or Missouri worker's compensation.
Sometimes accidents are caused by subcontractors or outside vendors — people who are not employees. If that happens, the construction accidents attorneys at Schoen Walton Telken & Foster can represent your interests in a third-party liability claim against the negligent person.
If you have construction site injuries, contact a personal injury attorney at Schoen Walton Telken & Foster.
