Determining Whether You Have a Personal Injury Case in Illinois

Accidents can be traumatic and devastating for both victims and their families. If you or a loved one has suffered a life-changing injury due to the negligence of another individual or company, they can and should be held legally responsible for the damages they’ve caused. There are several factors that determine whether you have a valid personal injury claim. These include:

Another entity was responsible for the injury

Unfortunately, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) violations are all too common in inherently dangerous work environments such as construction sites. If an employer or third party has failed to maintain safe working conditions, and this failure results in a serious personal injury or death of a loved one, you are likely entitled to substantial compensation. Get in touch with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your injury to discuss your options. With the help of Stephen R. Martay, Attorney at Law, you can prove that the other party was primarily or entirely responsible for the accident and recover the compensation you deserve.

The accident occurred as a result of faulty equipment or machinery

Laborers in dangerous occupations such as construction and transportation often suffer serious injuries due to equipment malfunctions. A dedicated work injury attorney such as Stephen R. Martay can help you prove that the manufacturer or distributor of the faulty equipment is liable for your workplace accident. Personal injury cases can become complex when multiple parties are involved. Stephen will help you navigate your claim and do everything in his power to secure the highest possible payout.
