Knowledgeable Workplace Injury Attorneys in Chicago, Illinois
At Mancini Law Group P.C., our Workplace Injury Lawyers Chicago, Illinois know that getting hurt at work can be devastating to your livelihood and, in most cases, our Illinois workers’ compensation laws protect workers for injuries sustained in the workplace.
However, when conflict arises regarding who is at fault for third-party accidents with injuries, we represent clients who have suffered from the negligence caused by manufacturers for machinery, tools, or safety equipment used on the job, property owners other than the employer, and other responsible parties.
While Illinois is a no-fault workers’ compensation state, our Cook County work accident lawyers know that employers will quickly pass the liability when another third party is to blame for their worker’s injuries — or avoid paying at all when an independent contractor is the one injured.
This is when things become complex, and workers’ compensation is often removed from liability. If this has happened to you, we will investigate the available options for seeking compensation for your injuries including when you are involved in an accident with a delivery driver, when you have suffered an injury on the premises, or when a third party is liable for your financial recovery.
At Mancini Law Group P.C., we believe in Maximum Justice. Maximum Results.
Were You Injured in an Accident with a Delivery Driver in Chicago, Illinois?
Chicago is one of the most important transportation and distribution hubs in the world, which also makes the seven interstate highways that crisscross the region some of the busiest roadways in the country.
Chicago is the number one intermodal container handler in the Western Hemisphere, with 25 facilities, including the Will County center, and BNSF Logistics Park Chicago, a large intermodal terminal in Elwood, Illinois.
They support the transfer of freight from containers to another mode of transportation, which may include trains, semi-trucks, flatbed trucks, and other commercial vehicles.
As productivity increases, so do their transportation requirements, placing more semi-trucks, commercial vehicles, corporate cars, and delivery vehicles on our roadways, which is leading to more liable parties being involved in crashes, including the employed driver, the company, or another third-party’s insurance provider.
At Mancini Law Group P.C., our Workplace Injury Lawyers Chicago handle cases throughout Illinois during crashes with injuries caused by corporate employees and independent drivers alike, including:
- Amazon and Amazon Prime
- Home Depot
- Door Dash, Grub Hub, Postmates & Uber Eats
- Grocery stores and other local businesses
- Pizza chains
- Private restaurants employees delivering food
- Transportation companies
If you have been involved in a collision with a semi-truck driver, a commercial vehicle, or delivery driver, contact our experienced car accident attorneys in Chicago to help you determine whose insurance policy or a combination of policies may be pursued for your financial recovery needs.
Independent Warehouse Workers and Other Third-Party Injuries in Chicago, Illinois
There are approximately 150,000 warehouse employees throughout the Chicago region, and that number continues to grow as e-commerce becomes the primary local and national shopping option.
Currently, Chicago has half a billion square feet of warehouse space, making it one of the largest concentrations of warehouses around the world. And while most of these employees are protected by workers’ compensation coverage when they are injured, tens of thousands are not.
Will County is now home to more than 300 warehouses alone, acting as distribution centers, storage, and freight-forwarding facilities that are working overtime to meet fulfillment needs, which can cause serious injuries as employees increase their productivity beyond their limits.
Independent contractors are not automatically eligible for workers’ compensation coverage in Illinois, as there are multiple factors that must be balanced to ensure coverage applies to contractor positions within a company — including how the employer classifies the position.
If you have been hurt at work, and your employer is claiming workers’ compensation does not cover your injuries because you are an independent contractor or another third-party was responsible for your injury, contact our experienced workplace injury attorneys in Chicago at Mancini Law Group P.C. today to schedule a free consultation.
