Pursuing Compensation for Injured Chicago Public Transportation Employees

There’s a misconception out there that Chicago public transportation employees “have it easy.” If you’ve ever worked for any of the public transit services in our city or state, of course, you know that’s not true.

The people that build, maintain, repair, drive, or otherwise facilitate our public transit systems work under phenomenally stressful conditions. They encounter members of the public who can be hostile or rude. The vehicles they drive often have problems. Their workplaces are sometimes hazardous. Their basic safety is a daily concern.

It’s no surprise, then, that transit employee injuries are fairly common in Chicago (and throughout the state of Illinois). The injuries often happen with little warning, and the impact can turn a worker’s world upside down.

Suddenly, you’re dealing with pain, time away from work, lost income, and a piling stack of medical bills. You may very well be entitled to compensation for your damages under Illinois personal injury law. But if the injury was related to your job, your only option might be to file a claim through the state Workers’ Compensation system.

Most states have a Workers’ Comp program, and Illinois is no different. Unfortunately, the system is bogged down in red tape, and it frequently produces wrong or unfair results.

Consider, for example, the bus driver who falls when the boarding handrail breaks. She has a legitimate injury and files a valid claim, but she gets wrongfully denied. Where is she to turn?

That kind of scenario happens all of the time.

Alternatively, her claim might be approved, but when all is said and done, she ends up with such a small recovery that it doesn’t come close to covering her losses. Is that justice?

The Illinois Workers’ Compensation system is confusing, tough to navigate, and inherently unfair. It isn’t impossible for victims to get fair compensation, but it’s a challenging and uphill battle. Our office can help.

Malman Law is an aggressive Chicago workplace injury law firm. We fight for the legal rights and financial interests of Chicagoans who’ve been hurt on the job. We have a strong record of getting our clients the money that they need.

Let us fight for you. Call Malman Law today.

Common Injuries Among Chicago Public Transportation Employees

The public transit systems in Chicago, Cook County, DuPage County, and the rest of Illinois are large-scale operations that employ many people in a wide range of positions.

In addition to the ticket takers and drivers, there are mechanics, administrative and support personnel, custodial staff, managers, marketers, executives, and more. Depending on their job duties, they face different kinds of risks on a daily basis, but any of these employees can become injured on the job.

Our Chicago workplace injury law firm is available to assist with any injury claim. Occasionally, we may even be able to seek additional compensation outside of the Workers’ Compensation system (depending on the facts of your case).

    I was rear-ended by a semi-truck on my way to work. I was transported to the hospital and my car was totaled. In the aftermath, Dan Petrich and Anna Schmidt from Malman Law helped me get set up with physical therapy and negotiated with the insurance companies to make sure the resulting settlement would cover my medical bills and a rental car until I could get a new car. I would highly recommend their services.

ALL FIELDS REQUIRED

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
