Chicago Police Officer Injured on Job

The Chicago Tribune reports, “A Chicago Police officer was injured while investigating a suspicious person in a gangway between two homes in the 6300 block of South Rhodes Avenue, authorities said.

The Grand Crossing District sergeant was transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center from that block at about 11:30 p.m., police said.

Police said the officer fell in a gangway but it’s not clear how he fell.”

A spokesperson for the Chicago Police Department indicated that the officer sustained a head injury that did not appear to be life threatening.

The police investigated early Friday morning, cordoning off the homes on each side of the gangway with yellow tape. No one has been taken into custody, according to police.

 

Chicago Work Injury

Our Chicago workers compensation attorneys know that police officers put themselves in the line of fire every day to keep our city safe. As a result, they do sometimes sustain work related injuries. Fortunately, in this situation, the injury is non life threatening.

Our Chicago workers’ compensation law firm believes that it is important that injured employees receive the work injury benefits that they are owed. How else will injured workers and their families be able to afford the costs of medical bills, recovery expenses, and the time off work needed to recover? An injured worker cannot sue an employer for Chicago personal injury when the injury or illness is job-related.

If you or a loved one have been injured while performing your job function, you have rights under the Illinois Workers Compensation Act. You are likely entitled to workers compensation benefits to help you recover from your work injury. Additionally, workers compensation awards may help to offset the loss of income if you are not able to attend work, depending on the nature of your injury and the workers compensation benefits that you are entitled to.

Filing for workers compensation benefits can be a long process, riddled with paperwork and specific guidelines and deadlines. For this reason, it makes sense to contact someone who has extensive experience, like a Chicago workers compensation attorney.
