Workplace Injury Compensation for Managers & Supervisors in Illinois

So much of Workers’ Compensation law tends to focus on injuries sustained by employees – entry-level and mid-level personnel who are unfairly hurt on the job. Certainly, those workers are entitled to robust compensation for their injuries, and our firm is proud to represent them.

But what happens when you’re the boss? What if you get injured on the job? Who’s looking out for you?

At Malman Law, we fight for the rights of every kind of employee in Illinois, including managers and supervisors.

After all, managers get hurt too. In most cases, they’re employees like anyone else, and they generally have the same rights under the law.

In fact, management-level workers tend to face certain unique risks, and their effort to acquire compensation after an injury can be especially challenging, giving the politics of the workplace.

We all know that companies are sometimes antagonistic toward Workers’ Comp claims. If you’re a manager, you likely work closely with your company’s leadership, and an injury claim could put a strain on those relationships.

Your relationship with your subordinates matters too. It’s easy for them to assume that you make a substantial amount of money, but the truth is that managers don’t always make significantly more than the people they supervise. And even for those who are well-compensated, the costs of an unexpected injury are often high enough to eclipse any income bracket. You may not want them to know all of the details, though.

If you’ve been injured on the job as a manager or supervisor in Illinois, you deserve a legal team that will fight to maximize your compensation while also respecting the delicacy of the situation.

As Chicago workplace accident lawyers, we pride ourselves on confidentiality, discretion, and truly effective legal strategy. While we can’t guarantee specific outcomes in any case, we are proud to have made a real difference in cases all across Illinois.

We’ve helped higher-ranking employees get the compensation that they need and deserve after an unfair or unexpected workplace injury. We’d like to do the same for you. Call the Chicago workplace accident lawyers at Malman Law today.

What Kinds of Injuries Are Common Among Managers and Supervisors?

For managers, workplace injuries can look a little different from other employees’ accidents.

Because they are often isolated in an office, managers may be hurt when no one else is around. A worker on a factory floor, for example, will quickly get attention if her hand becomes stuck in a piece of machinery. Nearby coworkers will take action.

But if a manager falls backward in her chair and hits her head against a hard surface, she can sustain a serious injury without anyone else knowing. That can cause serious delays in getting medical attention.

Managers tend to suffer different types of injuries too. For example, they are more likely than their subordinates to suffer soft tissue injuries or travel-related injuries. These include:

  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Stress, strain, and fracture injuries (when lifting file boxes, for example)
  • Auto accidents related to the job
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Hit and run

Other common management injuries include:

  • Toxic exposure
  • Assault from subordinates, coworkers, or customers
  • Hot coffee spills
  • Security risks when working in the office alone, especially late at night

Statistics show that managers are generally less likely than other employees to suffer traditional physical injuries. But they still happen. Managers and supervisors can be injured by:

  • Slip and fall
  • Electrocution
  • Machinery accidents
  • Crushing injuries
  • Falling objects
  • Other falls
  • Burns, blasts, and explosions
  • More

Whatever your accident might have involved, our Chicago workplace accident lawyers would like to help. Contact us as soon as possible.


What if You Own Your Business?

Many managers own their own businesses. That can complicate things where Workers’ Compensation insurance is concerned.

Consider, for example, the wood shop owner who loses a finger while cutting a piece of furniture. Should he file a Workers’ Compensation claim? Or should he “let it go” so that his insurance rates don’t skyrocket?

Another common question comes from people who are employed as managers but also share an ownership interest in their companies. Are they considered employees?

Injured business owners often fall within a gray area, and the best advice will depend on the facts and circumstances of your case. Don’t give up hope – you may be entitled to compensation, especially if someone else’s negligence played a role.

Give our Chicago workplace accident lawyers a call and talk about whether you might have a claim.

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
