Work Injuries

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Diligent Chicago Work Injury Attorneys

Each and every day, you get up and go to work to support yourself and your family. Do you ever stop and think about the chance you have of suffering work injuries? Workers’ compensation claims are more common in some professions and industries than in others. If you’re worried about how work injuries could affect your life, then you should know which industries carry the highest risk.

Transportation & Construction Industries

Two of the most common industries that see a high number of work injuries are the transportation and construction industries. Long hours, heavy machinery, dangerous tools, and job duties can all lead to increased workers’ compensation claims. If you were hurt during your shift, you should contact a workers’ compensation attorney to learn more about your rights under the law.

Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing, & Hunting Industries

Working outdoors with the land can be dangerous. You could be injured by using sharp blades, heavy machinery, or while driving a company vehicle. That list certainly isn’t all-inclusive. You can likely think of jobs in those industries and think of other ways someone would receive a work injury. Even if your injury is caused by user error, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Talk with a workers’ compensation attorney to find out if you’re entitled to lost wages.

Working in the Retail & Hospitality Industries

Retail establishments, restaurants, and hotels are just a few examples of retail and hospitality industry businesses. Think about this: Even if a worker wears the proper safety shoes in a restaurant to avoid a slip and fall, he or she may still get hurt at work. Grease, flour, cleaners, and even water can sometimes still cause people to slip regardless of their shoes. Using knives, cooking, baking, cleaning up broken glass and plates, and dealing with hot food are also common ways that work injuries occur in these industries. Don’t leave your benefits to chance if you’re hurt on the job. Contact a workers’ compensation attorney right away.

What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation acts as a safety net for employees who are hurt on the job. In fact, each state has a law in place that requires most employers to have a workers’ compensation policy. It is provided to workers at no cost.

If you’re hurt on the job, you need to let your manager or supervisor know right away. Do not continue to work. This can make your injuries worse. If you have a medical emergency, call 911. Talk with your Human Resources representative about filing a workers’ compensation claim.

Benefits of Workers’ Compensation

There are many benefits to filing a workers’ compensation claim. You may not qualify for every benefit, but if you have questions about your legal rights, contact Malman Law to get your questions answered.

One of the best known benefits is medical care. When you file your claim, you can ask your manager or your Human Resources rep for a list of doctors who you can see without charge. It can also help you pay for needed medications, therapy, and even surgery. However, you must file a workers’ compensation claim to get help with your medical expenses.

Another benefit is receiving a portion of your lost wages. In some instances, injured workers may be eligible to receive a portion of their lost wages if they are unable to work. Workers’ compensation can provide both temporary and permanent partial wage payments.

If you’re unable to return to your chosen occupation after you’ve been injured, workers’ compensation may provide you with new job training. This can help you return to the workforce when you’re able to do so.

There are other benefits as well. However, to receive the workers’ compensation benefits that you deserve, you must file a claim. If you’re unsure about whether you’re receiving everything you’re entitled to receive, you should contact Malman Law.

Don’t Sign Anything Without Talking to a Lawyer

If your employer or the workers’ compensation insurance company ask you to sign a settlement agreement, you need to talk with a lawyer before you sign. If you sign it, you could sign away your right to sue or be settling without receiving everything that you should. Take the document and speak with an attorney to ensure that your legal rights are protected.

If you suffer from a work injury, you need to talk to a workers’ compensation attorney right away. Don’t sign anything. You could sign away your legal rights. Malman Law is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for workers who are hurt on the job. We may be able to help you recover your lost wages, get your medical bills paid, and get you the medical care that you need.
