The Malman Law represented a union steel worker who, along with a coworker, had been ordered to work on a rain-drenched construction site. Our client and his coworker had attempted to move a 300 pound steel beam in these dangerous conditions. During this process, our client slipped and fell, sustaining a back injury so severe that it required surgery.
We recovered a $1 million settlement for him, including a waiver of the workers’ compensation lien. (An injured worker’s insurance company may recover whatever it paid out from any third party settlement, according to Illinois law.)
