Healy Scanlon Law Firm in Chicago is different from many of the law firms that handle construction accident cases in that our attorneys come from working class backgrounds. Many of us have worked in construction, including firm founder Martin Healy Jr. who operated heavy equipment during college and law school. Because of our backgrounds, we understand the dangers that construction workers face.
Our attorneys have obtained numerous multimillion-dollar recoveries for our clients, including $9.3 million for the family of a man who was killed in an accident involving a dump truck at a construction site in Chicago. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
