Common Workplace Injuries in Illinois
Every workplace poses some opportunity for injury. Some workplace injuries are minor, requiring little more than a bandage. However, many workplace accidents result in serious injury and demand the attention of an Illinois workers’ compensation attorney.
Workers’ compensation is a no fault insurance program designed to cover medical expenses and a portion of lost wages following a workplace injury. Nearly every employee in Illinois is covered by workers’ compensation, but getting this benefit is not always easy.
The Illinois workers’ compensation attorneys at Harvey L. Walner & Associates have a combined 75 years of experience helping workers with injuries such as:
- Head and brain injury
- Back, neck, and spinal cord injury
- Pulverized or fractured bones
- Puncture wounds
- Occupational disease and illness
We can also assist families of workers who have suffered fatal injury on the job.
Know Your Rights
Some workplace injuries are eligible for workers’ compensation alone. Others may be eligible for a personal injury lawsuit in which additional damages can be sought. Our Illinois workplace injury attorneys will investigate your case, discuss all of your options, and help you determine the most effective course of action.
