Workers’ Compensation Injury Types

Chicago, Illinois Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Workplace injuries strike without warning. No one climbs out of bed in the morning and hurries dutifully to their job site with the expectation that they’ll be hurt while there.

Nevertheless, Chicago workers are hurt every single day. Unfortunately, the system put in place by the State of Illinois is not as helpful as it ought to be.

Workplace injuries are particularly unfair because they happen while you’re working for somebody else’s benefit. The least your employer can do is make sure you’re safe while you earn them money. You work hard, after all, and you are entitled to protection.

Navigating the Illinois Workers’ Compensation system isn’t easy. Your employer and their insurance company will do everything they can to reduce or deny your coverage. They might even blame the injury on you. Don’t accept that.

Most workplace injuries happen because the employers failed to take reasonable steps to secure the workplace, or perhaps because they failed to address safety hazards they should have foreseen.

At Malman Law, we have more than 25 years of experience in helping injured employees in Illinois.

We know the Workers’ Compensation system here, we understand how to handle aggressive insurance companies, and we have a strategic command of the law.

While every single case is different and the outcomes are never guaranteed, we believe our Chicago Workers’ Compensation attorneys can make a meaningful difference in your claim. We may even be able to seek compensation outside of the Workers’ Comp system, depending on the facts and circumstances of your case.

When you hire Malman Law, you can count on us to explore every potential avenue for compensation. Our goal is simple: getting as much money for you as possible. We know that a single injury can turn your whole world upside down, and we want to put you on the best possible path toward recovery.

Common Types of Workers’ Compensation Injuries in Chicago

There are many kinds of Workers’ Comp injuries in Chicago, and the specific type of injury can determine the applicable legal standards and the available outcomes.

Common injuries include:

Additionally, you may be entitled to compensation if you have developed any ongoing health conditions or diseases as a result of your working conditions. These may include cancers, respiratory problems, impaired immune systems, paralysis, or any condition creating a hardship in your life.

Whatever the nature of your injury might be, the Chicago Workers’ Compensation lawyers at Malman Law can help.

Most Workplace Injuries Are Preventable

The law puts the burden of safety on employers (rather than employees) for a reason: employers are in a better position to make sure the workplace is safe.

Many companies derive tremendous profits from the hard toil of their laborers, and you have a right to expect that they will keep you safe in return.

The majority of the injuries sustained in Illinois workplaces — whether it’s a corporate office, a factory floor, or a construction site — are the result of preventable negligence.
