Types of Injury Cases We Handle

We represent airline employees who have suffered all types of work-related injuries. This includes injuries from slips and falls, lifting injuries, injuries from impacts and collisions, and job-related illnesses. Our experienced work injury attorneys regularly handle cases involving injuries such as, but not limited to: broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, soft tissue injuries, severe cuts and bruises, and internal organ damage.

Some of the types of airline employees we represent include:

  • Avionics technicians
  • Flight attendants
  • Ground attendants
  • Operations agents and cargo agents
  • Passenger service agents
  • Pilots

Seek Just Compensation for Your Work-Related Injury

In most cases, airline employees are able to claim benefits through their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. Workers’ compensation is mandatory for large employers in Illinois, and it provides no-fault benefits to all injured employees (with only a few, narrow exceptions). Workers’ compensation benefits cover injured workers’ medical bills (medical benefits) and lost wages (disability benefits), and can also help cover the costs of vocational rehabilitation.

While the workers’ compensation system acts as a substitute for suing your employer for damages, it does not prevent you from filing personal injury claims against third parties that are responsible for your injuries. At an airport, these could include the airport operator, other airlines, construction crews, contractors, and subcontractors. Airline employees on the ground and in the air may suffer injuries caused by poorly designed and defective equipment, and aircraft components as well.

No matter what caused your injury, if you are entitled to compensation, you can count on the attorneys and legal professionals at Malman Law to fight aggressively to win the compensation that you deserve.
