Dedicated Chicago Healthcare Workers’ Comp Lawyers

Experienced Injury Attorney Fighting for Compensation for Injured Healthcare Professionals

Illinois and Chicago healthcare workers are our state’s front-line defense in the war against disease and injury. But what happens when these skilled workers are hurt on the job? Who pays for their treatment, rehabilitation, and benefits?

Most often, the answer is the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission, a state organization that provides financial benefits to qualifying, injured employees.

Like most other states, Illinois set up a Workers’ Comp program in an effort to cut down on litigation and to make the compensation process more predictable and reliable for everyone involved. Unfortunately, as noble as those intentions might have been, the effort hasn’t been entirely successful.

Healthcare Workers Often Receive Inadequate Compensation. We Can Help.

Workers’ Comp is complicated. The forms are confusing and poorly explained. The process is rigorous and time-consuming. The margins for error are small. Anyone – even people as knowledgeable and highly educated as those working in the healthcare sector – can make big mistakes.

As Chicago healthcare Workers’ Comp lawyers, we realize that numerous, legitimate compensation claims end up rejected by the state commission – even claims from clearly injured doctors, nurses, paramedics, pharmacists, therapists, and more. Many of these denials are wrongful or errant.

Moreover, those who have their claims accepted are often offered far too little money.

As healthcare professionals, you know better than anyone how costly medical care can be in Illinois. We believe that your compensation should reflect the costs of your treatment and rehabilitation, as well as the value of your related losses and suffering.

Fortunately, if you’ve been offered inadequate compensation or wrongfully denied, there’s still hope.

The Chicago healthcare Workers’ Comp lawyers at Malman Law can handle the whole process for you, improving your chances of more comprehensive compensation, keeping you in compliance with the law, and even demanding additional compensation outside of the Workers’ Comp system whenever the facts and the law allow.

We will aggressively pursue the compensation that you deserve. After all, you went to work to help other people in our state. Now it’s time for your work and the state to help you.

Common Risks and Injuries in the Healthcare Career Setting

Healthcare workers are exposed to an array of unique and, at times, exotic dangers on the job. Injuries commonly result from:

  • Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs)
  • Exposure to sick patients (viral or bacterial infection, parasites, etc.)
  • Exposure to HIV
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals / chemical spills
  • Chemical burns
  • Inhalation of dust, particulate matter, or environmental toxins
  • Accidental needle exposure
  • Radiation exposure
  • Slip and fall on the job
  • Assault by patients, family members, or coworkers
  • Overuse injuries
  • Auto accidents (traveling to/from your workplace, a hospital, a lab, etc.)
  • Stress, strain, and fracture injuries (commonly incurred while lifting a box of files or setting up a piece of complicated medical machinery)
  • Emotional stress
  • Fatigue
  • More

These injuries may be due to:

  • Negligence of a fellow nurse, doctor, or staff member
  • Overcrowded hospital conditions
  • Inadequate inspection and/or maintenance of the jobsite
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Patients with mental health or substance abuse conditions
  • Ethical or legal violations
  • Being asked to perform tasks that are outside of your duties and/or physical abilities
  • Grueling or unfair working conditions
  • Hostile work environment
  • Hospital’s inadequate investment in HAI prevention
  • More

Even if no one seems to be at-fault for your injury, you may still be entitled to compensation under Illinois Workers’ Compensation law. Malman Law can help.

Non-Medical Professionals Working in Medical Environments

Hospitals and doctor’s offices depend on much more than doctors and nurses to stay in operation. Anyone working in a medical environment is subject to certain risk, ranging from routine dangers to the kind of high-risk perils that are exclusive to the medical setting.

In addition to doctors, nurses, and other professionals, the Chicago healthcare Workers’ Comp lawyers at Malman Law are proud to represent:

  • Administrators
  • Administrative assistants
  • Chaplains
  • Registrars
  • Receptionists
  • Secretaries
  • Medical Records personnel
  • Human Resources personnel
  • Business Department personnel
  • IT professionals
  • Insurance coordinators
  • Orderlies
  • Custodial staff
  • Gift shop workers
  • Cafeteria workers
  • Case managers
  • Social workers
  • Executives
  • Technologists
  • Technicians
  • Nursery workers
  • Dieticians
  • Hospice support staff
  • Nursing home support staff
  • In-home senior care and comfort attendants
  • Anyone else employed in a medical setting

Whether you suffered a “mundane” office injury (a wrist sprain while filing charts, for example) or you became seriously injured or ill (e.g., acquired a viral or bacterial infection from a patient in your facility), you are entitled to certain protections under Illinois law.

Our Chicago healthcare Workers’ Comp lawyers can help.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
